    I think I have this on my left shin (always my left leg at the moment). It started 14 months ago when I had the foot abscess and the lymphatics spread junk up my leg. Never really settled and I thought initially it was psoriasis (strong family history of it). Using various creams that seem to help after a few days eg E45, body shop hemp hand cream, neutragena foot cream.

    Anybody got this? Any advice wellcome.
