Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • It seems to be contact dermatitis. A cream combination of a potent steroid (like Clobetasol) and an antibiotic (like Fusidic acid) will be helpful. Apply it twice daily for two weeks.
  • Avoid soap.
  • Apply moisturizer repeatedly.
  • I suggest you take tablet Loratadine 10 mg twice daily for two weeks for itching. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
