No fever.... At times its itchy... Not always.... I think it's been there for about 5-6 days.... I don't think it's fluid filled

Brief Answer:
Cream and Tablet

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I think it is most likely Lichen Planus. I suggest you to apply either Dipgenta cream or Tenovate Gn Cream, twice daily for a few days.
You may take a tablet of cetrizine 10mg once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.
