hi..thanks for your query.
It is common to see many people reacting to occlusive bandages due to the adhesive material present in the bandage.To treat it,you had to avoid any similar products in future.
Any such allergic contact dermatitis is treated with topical steroids and oral anti histaminics. You should consult your dermatologist for the prescription of the steroid cream.There are several combination creams containing steriod and antibiotics, which may need to be applied.
Hope this helps
Take care!
