Brief Answer:
Eczema, can apply momate cream.

Detailed Answer:

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be eczema.
Yes you can apply momate cream once daily for 7-8 days along with application of a moisturising cream containing white soft paraffin ( moisturex soft cream or olesoft XXXXXXX cream ) on the entire limb twice daily.
This will relieve the itching as well as resolve the eczema

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
