Hi there

Can you help?

it stings, sometimes itchy, looks and feels disgusting, and hard to hide. plus, anything with chemicals makes it sting and burn and make it worse.

Dear Emma,

Thank you for contacting Colaz Reading.

I have had a look at the image you have attached and from what I can see, it looks like Dermatitis.
Dermatitis is a general term for skin inflammation. It can become uncomfortable and itchy for some depending on the severity of the problem. The symptoms of this are as follows; rashes, dry/cracked skin, swelling, painful stinging/ burning. From what you have described, this sounds exactly like your problem.

There are many different causes of Dermatitis. If you have just flared up with this, it could be due to weather change, stress or certain exposures. Whereas, some may find that it can last a long time and have this problem regularly.

You have also advised me that anything with chemicals is irritating the area and causing burning and the problem to become worse. In this case, I would avoid touching or putting any chemicals on the area at the moment.
I can see you are describing it as dry, flaky and inflamed. To help this, I would suggest contacting your GP because with this situation that you have described, it would be best to see a dermatologist. They will be able to recommend you products to help your concern.

I wish you luck with resolving your problem.

Kind regards,
Colaz Reading.
