Brief Answer:
Please upload an image.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Yes, I would appreciate if you could upload an image of the affected areas. Apart from Benadryl cream I would suggest taking some antiallergic tablet like cetirizine once daily for the next few days. Also apply some moisturizer or emollient like aloe vera lotion topically over the affected areas.

I will wait for your response.
