General & Family Physician Dr. Malligai. E's  Response
This condition rashes and itching can be due to insect bite or worm infestation or eating food which is not tolerated by you, or it may be due to some drug. You can take some anti histamines. All time favorite is tab. Avil 25 mg. It is having sedation property hence don't drive or operate machinery at work place. Apply the Caladryl lotion on the affected part. You can take anti helminthitic like tab. Albendazole after checking your stools at lab. If it is not coming down or if it spreads meet a physician immediately.

Hi.. It could be an eczematous reaction.. Continue benadryl.. Skin soothening lotions such as lactocalamine are effective.. If these products are not helping, then you may need topical steroid preparations which is the choice of medications. But beware,  steroids may have to be started only after you see a doctor...
