As the weather gets colder, you’re seeing more and more of this. But the question is, the question is, not what is this. Yeah, that- What happened. But I’m gonna ask, could it happen to me? This could absolutely happen to you, Travis. This is super common. I think it’s kind of hard to see because it’s a blown up picture. But for us laypeople, you gotta tell us what is it? Oh, so this is called nummular dermatitis, and nummular is just a fancy medical jargon word for coin-shaped. So this tends to occur on the lower legs. Some people call it winter itch. It occurs from the knees down, and you get this very discreet, red, scaly, sometimes itchy patches, and the clue is that it comes up in very dry patches of skin. Sometimes people mistake it for ringworm, so if you do see just one, definitely go get it tested and make sure it’s not an infection. But many of these round patches can be treated by just good old moisturizer. Some people call it winter itch, so this could definitely happen to you. If it’s itchy, a little bit of steroid cream will completely take care of it. Good stuff! What’s cool is if you have any what is this, what happened, and could it happen to me pictures, send them our way.
