Thanks for the query.

Looks like you are suffering from an exanthematous infection, most probably of viral eitiology.
You have been given appropriate medications for the same.

You can apply calamine lotion to the affected area, this will help reduce in inflammation and also bring in a soothing effect.

A nice home remedy is to mix XXXXXXX milk with glycerine in 1:1 ratio. This is cheaper and equally effective.

I hope I have answered your query, if you have no further queries please accept my answer.

I wish you a speedy recovery.
