Itching waistline?
brianskelter posted:
Few weeks ago my left and right side of my waist started itching. I thought it was just normal itching. Now, my skin is darkened because of scratching. It also has swells. I have the photos here. Sorry if it looks bad. I need help.

I want to know if the cause is eczema or what and what medications should be applied. Thank you.

Hi brianskelter,

Have you seen your doctor or a dermatologist about your symptoms? Here is a visual guide to eczema that you can use to compare your skin and symptoms to. It would be a good idea to have a medical professional look at your skin to try to determine what is causing this itchiness and to give you some suggestions on the best treatment options. Please let us know how you are doing!
