I have some skin infection for quite some time now. I have tired a few medicines for the same and I got a laser treatment once. Can you tell me what the issue is based on the images and also the possible treatment that I should undergo?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You seem to have eczematous dermatitis. I suggest you use a potent topical steroid like Tenovate-Gn (Clobetasol propionate and Neomycin) cream or Halovate-F cream (Ulobetasol and Fusidic acid), twice daily. In addition, I suggest you take an oral antihistamine like Cetirizine 10 mg tablet once a day for a few days.
Thanks. I will try the same. Is there any chance this is lichen planus hypertrophicus?

Yes, it could be lichen planus hypertrophicus (LPP). Another possibility is that it is prurigo nodularis. Both of these are forms of eczematous dermatitis. Take care.
