Seen comments and I have the same problem. Its psoriasis. Try coal tar prep., it may burn but clears it up. I'm sure DR will have better products to remedy the promplem. But don't worry about it. One of many problems with the once hard rock
I had the same issue now for years- no scarring once it goes away. The best thing I did was to see a dermatologist, who prescribed OLUX foam. It is very expensive and burns REALLY bad at first (due to the alchohol base), but after about the second or third time it stops burning and dissapears. It does come back, though, so it will be an ongoing treatment. The OLUX foam gives a rebate at the pharmacy- so just ask at the counter or Drs office. Another one that works almost as well is mometasone furoate lotion. If anyone knows a more permanent solution- let me know because it is a nuisance!!!!!
