Brief Answer:
ALLERGIC REACTION. FOLLOW THE ADVICE.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

According to your information, it is mostly suggestive of allergic reaction from dust particle, chemical subs or environmental factor.

Some tests will be worthwhile like Complete Blood Count (TC/ DC/ ESR), Serum IgE, Blood sugar (PPBS) etc. I suggest to consult with local physician for proper guidance regarding this.

MANAGEMENT: 1) Bathing two times daily with anti-bacterial soap or Savlon solution (mixed in water). Wear clean and cotton dress only. Maintain hygiene.

2) You must stay away from room dust, smoking, chemical product/ detergent, allergen foods (egg, brinjal, crab, prawn, shellfish etc), specific drug causing allergic reaction, insect sting etc.

Use Vacuum Cleaner to remove dust particle and allergen subs. Use insect killer and Air freshener to modify room environment.

3) I suggest to take LEVOCETIRIZINE (once daily) and use CALAMINE lotion or ALOE VERA gel for soothing effect. Don't scratch the area.

1% Hydrocortisone cream can be applied if symptoms persist despite of above protocol. Supportive treatment may be required according to test report.

SUGGESTION: Kindly, visit to your local physician for clinical examination and take complete prescription.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Regards,
Dr S Patra

Hi my husband is suffering from fungal infection of the groin , his dermatologist prescribed him canesten and nizorale cream. since he started the treatment his situation became much worse and the infection spread! so he went back and the doctor prescribed him Gupisone 20mg tablets and a hydrocortisone 17 butyrate 0.1% cream. His skin is really irritated already is it safe to use such treatment as it contains steroids which might increase the irritation?
