I've had this mark on my leg for around 9 months now. It's about 4cm long and other little similar areas come and go. It's quite itchy.
I did show it to my doctor but he did nothing about it. Dies anyone know what it could be? And what I can do about it?

Looks like impetigo

Thanks for replying. It's not impetigo which I've had before (and went crusty envy)

Have you tried anti fungal cream?

Varicose eczema

I would say fungal. Go back to the GP or a diff one.

oh, and I am a doctor, although not a dermatologist!

Thanks all. I did have something for athlete's foot - might that work?
