Brief Answer:
Topical steroid, moisturising lotion and antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and it could be related to weather in XXXXXXX
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply mild topical steroid like desonide cream on the affected areas twice daily along with frequent and liberal application of a moisturising lotion ( cetaphil moisturising lotion or epilyno lotion ) on the entire face 3-4 times in a day.
For itching take antihistaminic like tablet levocetrizine 5 mg once daily at bedtime for 10 days.
These medicines won’t have any effect on your conception.
