Hi Dear,

Thanks for writing in.

The rash you are describing can be seborrheic dermatitis, fungal infection , folliculitis etc.

If you can upload good quality photos of the affected skin ,it will help a lot in predicting the condition.

Also I would like to know-

Is it painful?

Is it scaly?

Itching is present more in day or night?

Is it responding to clotrimazole?

Any family member with similar problem?

Any systemic symptom like fever/ any other site affected?

Please answer the above questions to help you better.

Till then you can take tab .zyrtec for itching.
Apply moisturizer cream on affected area.

Anticipating your reply.
