Brief Answer:
Irritant dermatitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.
You seem to have developed irritant dermatitis to detail.
I suggest you to apply a topical steroid and antibiotic combination e.g Fluticasone Propionate 0.05 % and Mupirocin 2% (Flutibact Ointment),twice daily.
