Considering physical general and particular symptoms,

TELLURIUM 200 single dose given along with sac lac for 15 days. After 15 days,the severity of itching decreased and dry skin became normal but the patch was as it is. So I repeated the Tellurium 200 single dose with sac lac for the next 15 days. But the patient came after 20-22 days. Patch was completely cleared and there was no itching at all.
