Hi, My 4 years old daughter has almost one month red patches symetrically localized under both knees. Originally It was scaly, now with small red rusch in the midle. Border is well defined and a bit more reddish. We have tried clortimazole for a last week, but no significant effect. They are both ca 2 cm in diameter and appeared just after chickenpox healing.
Thank you for your opinion. Actually, first 3 days we used topical steroids and there was a big effect on therapy, but then we skip it as it was suspected to be a mycosis (avoid tinea incognito). Since there, it is more or less the same. No much sun in this period of year where I am living, so we will wait for summer.
