My dermatologist have prescribed me 1/2 clobestasone cream, prednisolone tablets previously and also cimetidine and halodine as I have a cough recently. I also have red lines on my hands should I place/carry things over it. I have a long history of eczema and also endocarditis 10 years ago. What can cause the itch and what can be done?
