What could be the cause of a red weeping patch at my ankle? (photo)Skin, Hair & Nails
There is a red patch on my right leg near the ankle area. After I shower, it starts weeping. What could be the cause of it and what are the treatment options?
Eczema on the legs can be caused by various factors such as stasis eczema ie poor venous circulation and contact dermatitis (allergy or irritation from substances applied).
If your rash is still persistent, it would best for you to see your doctor or dermatologist for a proper assessment and treatment.
