Allergic skin reaction,need to find the cause
I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
You seem to have developed an allergic reaction
. Such an allergic reaction can occur due to various reasons.
It can be due to application of any topical irritant cream or spirit or things like dettol
. It can also occur due to insect bite or a sunburn
reaction.Even things like excessive rubbing or scratching of the area can lead to such a reddish skin reaction.
You can try to figure out if something abnormal came in contact with this area prior to the development of the skin reaction.
Now for the management, you need to apply a topical steroid
cream like cortisone
over the affected area twice a day. Wear cotton clothes so as to prevent any further irritation .Do not apply any other oil or cream over it.
Hope it helps
Please ask if you need any further clarifications
