I am a 45 year old Chinese man.
I have developed very itchy and scaly brownish areas on my shins.
I do not have any allergies and I am not on any medications.
I have received many different treatments for this condition like steroid creams and injections but none has worked.
My latest blood tests including blood sugar levels have been normal.
What could I be suffering from?
