hello Mr Chakkaravarthy

You need to consult a dermatologist so that you can be put on proper treatment like topical steroids, calcipotriol, or systemic methotrexate/ retinoids depending on the clinical condition
May be you require NB UVB treatment as well. There are various modalities of treatment which can only be decided after examining you.

Hope it helps
