Welcome to XXXXXXX

You have developed Dermatitis, which may be due to infection, injury, allergy or a reaction to insect bite.

As it is not possible to see it clearly, you should consult a skin specialist for examination.

You should get your blood sugar (F&PP) & T&DLC with eosinofil count tested.

Meanwhile, you can take some anti-histaminic like levoceterizine-5mg once or twice daily and apply surfaz-sn/quadriderm ointment locally twice daily with consultation to your doctor.

If you have any further query in this regard, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,
