you havent mentioned your age and what kind of treatment you are at present taking.The condition either seems to be atopic dermatitis or will be better you undergo for a skin biopsy, since it will help making correct diagnosis.Till then,avoid harsh soaps ,use luke warm water ,apply plenty of emollient after bath,try to use loose cotton clothes.once your with your biopsy done and correct diagnosis made your proper line of treatment will be started.
