Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the feedback

Looks like a contact dermatitis. You can take the following

1. Tab Levocetrizine 5mg one tablet at bed time for 5 days
2. Apply some Vaseline thrice daily to keep it moist.
3. Apply Lobate GM cream over the rash three tome a day for 5 days.

Do not scratch.

This will help in resolution of the rash quickly.

Kind Regards

Thanks Dr. I purchased those medicines. but just for curiosity, I don't wear such long sockets, nor do I wear tight trousers and the allergy is not in just one place. It's in multiple places and spreading. What could the cause be?

Brief Answer:
Hello again

Detailed Answer:
Mostly these sort of allergic rashes develop because of seasonal changes. Use the medication for 5 days but if you doesn’t feel any improvement in 3 days then I would like to suggest you to personally consult a dermatologist so that he can examine the rash proper and then prescribe accordingly.

Hope to have been helpful.
