Brief Answer:

Eczematous dermatitis

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

You seem to have eczematous dermatitis. I suggest you to apply a topical potent steroid e.g clobetasol propionate 0.05 %ointment or halobetasol propionate 0.05 % ointment, twice daily.

In addition to this you may take an oral antihistamine e.g Cetrizine 10mg tab once every evening for symptomatic relief from itching.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
