I am having dry skin patches on my skin. They started about four weeks ago, and I first noticed them in my groin area. They are just dry, and they do not hurt or itch. Two weeks ago, I went to a pharmacy, and they suggested it could either be Pityriasis rosea, Pityriasis versicolor or psoriasiform eczema; and they prescribed Fluconazole tablets, Travocort cream, and Advantan ointment. I have been using them ever since, but the condition has spread all over my body especially on my hands, groin, thighs, and upper back areas.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I suggest you the following treatment for two weeks. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.
1. Use a moisturizer containing Aloe vera and soft paraffin, in the morning and evening.
2. Mometasone cream for local application once at night.
3. Tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg once daily at night.

Thank you doctor,
Thank you so much for your response. It has been over 5 weeks now. It is more than the maximum stated of 4 weeks. Could there be any explanation for this?

In few patients, there can be extended lesions even up to three months. But it is rare. With the use of the prescribed medication, your lesions will resolve early.
