I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be conmtactd ermatitis, stasis dermatitis or lichen simplex chronicus. One very less likely possibility but still needs to be ruled out is Woringer-Kolopp diseasewhich is characterized by skin redness, lymphadenopathy and alopecia. It is a very rare disease and chances are less likely in your case.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
