Hi,

I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like Clobetasol Propionate cream diluted in a moisturizing lotion in the ratio of 1:3 on the affected areas twice daily and antihistaminic like tablet Cetirizine 10 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
