Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am having a hard time getting an appointment with a dermatologist. I have a patch on my skin that is slightly raised. The doctor I consulted earlier did not have many answers. Could you please give me your opinion? Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for writing in, and I understand your concern. Would you please answer my questions. When did it appear? Is it itchy? Is it painful? Do you have any history of an insect bite? Is there any excess scratching and rubbing? And lastly, are you diabetic? Thank you.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thanks for your response. It has been there for the last two months. No, it is not painful and scratchy. There has been no history of insect bites. Also, I do not have diabetes. Please suggest me what to do. Regards.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Based on your reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity) it is a dysplastic nevi (lesion with secondary bacterial infection). I suggest you apply 2 % Mupirocin ointment twice daily in the morning and night for the next ten days and Azac soap (Azelaic Acid) for a bath for two months. Avoid scratching and rubbing of the area. Also, apply Kevon lotion (Ketoconazole) for twenty minutes before bath and continue this for the next twenty days. Apply this on your back specifically as there are scaly lesions on them. Avoid activities that cause sweating and wear loose, comfortable cotton clothes. Stay in a well-ventilated room and a calm environment. Avoid heat, moisture, occlusion, and friction. Please maintain proper hygiene. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
