Since last year i have had these white patches of bumps on my legs. They have seemed to spread further up my leg, but have slowed down near my knee. The patches seem to me like dry skin, yet they also have bumps which seem to always reside by the base of a hair follicle. I have tried to moisturize them for at least 3 weeks now and no progress has been made it seems. I was informed it maybe some sort of fungus, so i tried to apply athlete's foot cream to it for a week. No results seemed to show from the athlete's foot cream. I am now trying cortizone to see if any thing changes. These attached photo is a zoomed out view, you can refer to this link, http://i.minus.com/ibtqpU8pzFZwai.JPG , for a close up
