I have very dry itchy patches on my scalp and back which i scratch all the time. Sometimes they bleed from scratching.

Posted by mermaid

It started out of the blue on my forearms and the doctor said it was excema and gave me antibiotics and creams which cleared it up for a while but after the treatment it came back. Now I have patches on my scslp which are really dry and also on my back.  Can you help?

It could still be eczema. Eczema doesn't go away after treating it. It's an ongoing conditon that needs to be constantly treated. If it's coming back, you should talk to your doctor to make sure that it's not being caused from contact with somethin else, and if it's just your natural skin, continue the treatment that they suggest for you. Good luck!
