Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I have reviewed the Images. I can see blotchy red areas on legs and arms.

These seem most likely a result of direct contact with irritants/ chemicals present in plants/ shrubs.

You may use the same steroid cream that I had told you before i.e triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% cream , twice daily for a few days.
