Brief Answer:

Moisturizer, topical steroid and oral antihistamine

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Perhaps you have a dry skin i.e Xerosis.

I suggest you apply a moisturizer, frequently. In addition, I suggest you apply a topical steroid e.g cortisone cream, twice daily for a few days.

You may also take an oral antihistamine e.g tab Cetrizine once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Kakkar S., Dermatologist
