Brief Answer:

Eczematous dermatitis

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

You seem to have eczematous dermatitis. I suggest you use moisturizer frequently.

In addition, I suggest you to apply a topical potent steroid cream e.g clobetasol propionate 0.05 % cream, twice daily.

You are also taking a tablet Cetirizine once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
