    Weird scaly looking rash

    I have had this weird looking rash on both of my wrists since winter of 2007. At first I just thought i had dry skin because it was winter & I always wear hoodies, so I thought caused it. But it has been MONTHS now & it still is on my wrists. It feels really scaly it barely ever itches. I have tried using eurcerine cream for a while but I don't think it helped all that much. People told me it might be either eczema or psoriasis but I looked at pictures of those it I honestly don't think it looks like either of them, but who knows maybe it is the beginning of one of them. If anyone has any idea what it may be please leave me some feedback. Thanks.

    If the skin is scaly, it is probably eczema. But eczema typically comes and goes. Does it get better for a week then flare up again. Most people have to go through many different moisturizers before they find one that doesn't bother them. Try using cortisone ointment.
    I also have a skin problem that is plaguing me. Five dermatologists and no answer.
