No its not itchy.No other site on body only at 1 place.
And it was white earlier I have put some cream on it from last 2 days thats why it has turned red.Cream I put is AQUAPHILIC.

Hi Again ,

Ive gone through your photo.

My advise to you would be to stop applying AQUAPHILIC cream .

Apply only white soft petroleum gel.

The redness will subside in a week or so.
Once the redness subsides can apply hydrocortisone cream.It is mild steroid cream.
Which will decrease the white spot . You should apply it once daily for 7 days only.

Do not apply any other cream over the area.

Hope Ive made myself clear.

Thanks for your reply.

I brought Vaseline 100% pure petrolium jelly and equate 1% Hydrocortisone Anti Each cream.

I will apply vaseline first asper your suggestion and once redness goes I will put Hydrocortisone.

Also suggest if you want me to take any tablet.
Let me know if you have any suggestion over this.

Best Regards, XXXXXXX

Hi again,

No oral medication is necessary.

Apply topicals as discussed before.

Do let me know the improvement after 1 week.
