Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photographs.
It is looking like psoriasis.
I treat such cases with topical steroid cream like clobetasol in day and coal tar ointment in night.
This gives excellent response.
You can try this for 15 days and let me know the response.
Take an antihistamine tablet for a week.
This will give you relief from itching.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
