Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Probably you have developed allergic contact dermatitis.
I treat such cases with a combination of steroid and antibiotic cream.
Betagent cream should be helpful to you.
Take an antihistamine tablet to control itch.
If possible upload a photograph of the involved area.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you.
