Detailed Answer:
Hi!

Welcome to health care magic!

I am Dr. Saddiq Ul Abidin. I have read your problem in detail and will try to help you in best way possible.

It would have been more helpful if you had shared the picture , and a detailed history like, are these associated with fever or discharge? And do he have any history of associated history of allergic symtoms.

Based on brief history you shared, it can allergic, but he needs a detailed dermatological evaluation.

Meanwhile for itching, anti histamines like cetrizine can be given. For topical application, ointments containing emolients along with steroids can be given. If there is no fever or discharge, antibiotic use can wait.

Hope this has answered your query, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask. kindly rate me generously before closing, and leave your feedback if possible.

Regards,
Dr. Saddiq Ul abidin.
