Brief Answer:
Eczematous rash, topical steroid, antihistaminic, moisturizing lotion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query and reviewed the attached photographs.
It seems to be eczematous rash.
I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like clobetasol propionate cream diluted in a moisturizing lotion in the ratio of 1:3 on the affected areas twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet cetrizine 10 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching.
Steroidal preparations are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
