Hello
Thanks for the query.
It might be an allergic contact dermatitis.
Can you please upload a photograph of the involved area.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and better way of management.
I would like to know whether the spot appears on its own and disappears after few days or it disappears after treatment.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you.
