Should Continuous Medical Treatment Be Administered For Recurrent Skin Irritation?
Seems to be urticaria, upload pictures, answer few questions
I need to ask you few questions:
Is skin irritation associated with rash?
If yes are the rashes persistent or disappear after sometime?
Is there any recent history of fever, cough, sore throat, loose motions or pain abdomen?
Have you taken any medicines in the recent past?
Do you have any chronic ailments?
Also upload pictures of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.
Eczematous rash, topical steroid, antihistaminic & oral steroid if required
It looks like an eczematous rash.
I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like Clobetasol propionate cream diluted in a moisturizing lotion in the ratio of 1:3 twice daily and take antihistaminic like tablet cetrizine10 mg twice daily for 10 days.
If the rash doesn’t improve in 3-4 days you might require a short course of oral steroids like tablet tablet prednisone 20 mg once daily for 7-10 days.
Steroids are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further questions.
Continue with the cream, take tablet prednisone 20 mg once daily
The medicines take time to act.
You can continue with the cream.
If itching is severe take a short course of oral steroids like tablet prednisone 20 mg once daily for 5 -7 days along with tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg twice daily.
