Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
lactomine lotion is a mostirising cream, you can continue that cream
Dipsalic is a steroid preparation, it should be used cautiously, it should not be applied in crease/ joints as it has fallowing side effects:
thinning of skin
fungal infection
strech marks may increase..
you can take tab. loratidine for itching control, and apply moistirising cream...
FOr further management consult dermatologist
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon
