Please upload an image.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and would like to help. However, I would need you to upload an image of the affected area. A look at the image will enable me to understand the situation, based on which I would be able to guide you further.

However, you can take some antiallergics like cetirizine once daily. That will help in reducing the itchiness. Also apply some emollients like aloe vera lotion.

I will wait for your response.
