Do you have night aggravation of itching? Excess scratching and rubbing of the lesion, oozing, or bleeding? Do you have mite allergies? Similar history in family members? Web spaces of finger involvement? Do you have a fever or improper hygiene? Any history of atopy or allergies? A similar episode in the past? Answer the questions for details.

Thank you doctor,

No night aggravation of itching. Sometimes it is not that itchy. Scratches if it is itchy. Try not to scratch as much as possible. No, scratching or itching. There are seldom bleeding on some small wounds, but not oozing.

I have mite allergies. My grandmother's side has the same problem, some skin allergies as well. Father has a scaly scalp, like dandruff, which he has been dealing with for years now. No, web spaces of finger involvement. No fever. I take a bath daily. I had skin asthma when I was a child, 5-6 years old.

Not as long as this time. A month or two, I think when he was younger, five to six years old. Also, not as widespread as this in the arms, feet, and legs. Just in isolated part like in one arm.
