Brief Answer:
Eczematous dermatitis

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

Seems like eczematous rash.
I suggest you to use a moderately potent topical steroid e.g either triamcinolone acetonide cream or mometasone furoate cream, twice daily for a few days. In addition I suggest you to take an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10mg tablet once a day for symptomatic relief from itching.

take care
