Brief Answer:
Eczema, topical steroid & antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs and you seem to be having eczema.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like mometasone cream on the affected area twice daily for 10-12 days.
Also take antihistaminic like tablet cetrizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime.
Steroidal preparations are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
