Thanks for the description but it still incomplete to make a diagnosis. Best would be to visit a dermatologist. Till then i would advice you to keep moisturising your legs atleast 2 times a day and use a mild mosturising soap. Avoid scrubbing and scratching.

Greetings. Thank you for the lesion. The history given is limited. The description of your lesions is that of an eczema. It could even be a fungal infection. However, its best diagnosed if you could send pictures or ideally visit a qualified dermatologist near you. With this necessary treatment may be initiated for the specific diagnosis made. Hope this helps. Warm regards.
