Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description, it's steroid sensitive relapsing contact dermatitis. An option for a longer remission with low or no recurrence would be to go for stronger immunomodulators agents like topical tacrolimus or pimecrolimus in consultation with your doctor.

Wishing you best of health
