Hello dear, thanks for your question on HCM.
In my opinion you are having skin allergy.
There are many causes for skin allergy.
It may be due to clothes, food, dust or chemical.
Another possibility of insect bite.
Better to start this treatment for relief.
1. Wear cotton clothes.
2. Skin hygiene is must.
3. Avoid chemical use if you are using it.
4. Take antihistaminic tablets twice daily.
5. Take leukotriene receptor blocker in night.
6. Apply steroid cream to the skin lesion.
7. Take multivitamin containing zinc.
If not improving in 5 days we have to start oral steroids.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
Thanks for your quick response.
However, Can you suggest the exact tablet names and brand, I mean what I should look for in Medical store :)
Thanks for your question.
Combination of antihistamines and leukotriene receptor blocker is
ALLEGRA M (180+10). It is having Fexofenadine 180mg and montelukast 10 mg. Take this twice daily.
Steroid cream is MOMATE. It is having Mometasone. Apply it thrice daily on skin lesions.
Multivitamin with zinc is tablet A TO Z.
Once daily in afternoon after meals.
All these are prescription only. So, please discuss with your doctor and get the prescriptions.
Hope I have solved your query. If you are not having further queries, please close the conversation and rate the answer. Thanks.
