Hi and Welcome to HCM,
How long you have this condition?. Apply corticosteroids creams Clobetasol Propionate. If topical cream not responding take Prednisone. Take antihistamines at night to reduce itching. Phototherapy with ultraviolet is advised for black spots. If severity is extreme try Ciclosporin capsules or Acetretin tablets.
