Thanks for the query.

You might have developed An endogenous eczema,

It is called as pompholyx.

You can apply a mild steroid like desonide.

Also take an anti histamine tablet like cetrizine.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
