Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,
Welcome to health care magic.
From your description, you seem to be having chronic eczema. Eczema can have relapses and recurrences. You could try the following.
Apply a steroid containing cream for about 10-14 days till the lesions subsided
After they subside, start using a moisturiser daily twice a day immediately after bath.
Use a soap free cleanser.
Bathe with lukewarm water and never with hot water.
You could also take anti itching tablets for the initial 10-14 days for symptomatic relief.
Stop scratching or rubbing the lesions as it sets in an ' itch scratch cycle' which will make the problem worse.
Hope this helps you.
Take care.
