Thanks for writing in.
The condition can be allergic contact dermatitis,atopic dermatitis,tinea facie etc.
A proper physical examination would be required for diagnosis and treatment.
Oral steroids may be required if condition is severe.
Till the time you can take tab.cetirizine twice a day and apply good quality moisturizer over the area.
Hope this helps.

Dermatologist Dr. Ilyas Patel's  Response

It seems that you may be having atopic dermatitis.

You may be having atopic diathesis.

There are so many factors which precipitate your disease.

Dry weather,sun exposure,soap,cosmetic,house dust,house dust mite,grass,wool,
perfume and other allergen.. Even dietary factors like cow milk,peas and nuts, eggs,chicken,fish,prawns.etc can precipitate or exacerbate atopic dermatitis.

Mild steroid cream or tacrolimus or pimecrolimus oint may improve the disease

Antihistaminics like levocetirizine or loratidin may be taken to relive itch or irritation. If the condition is embarassing , you may take oral steroids in tappering dose.

You consult dermatologist.

I hope you got my answer.
