Brief Answer: fungal infection Detailed Answer: Hello You might have developed tinea corporis, a fungal infection or an allergic contact dermatitis. Till now you have been prescribed only steroid cream. Sorbolene is moisturizer. You might require treatment with anti fungal cream. I would like to see the rash. Can you please upload a photograph of the affected area. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and better way of management. There is an option to upload photo on right side of query page. Please utilize it. Waiting for your response. Thank you
