Hi, you are having either irritant or allergic contact dermatitis. Avoid sun exposure, avoid soap, do not wear woolen cloths, keep away from dust,fume ,grass. Apply mild steroid with antibiotic cream. Take antihistaminic, steroid in tappering dose for few weeks only. After feeling better, you apply tacrolimus 0.03 percent oint. Avoid cows milk and it product, fish, prawns, peas and beans, banana,fermented food, colored cold drinks, beverages etc. you may be improved. Relapses are common. You may consult dermatologist for sure diagnosis and treatment.. Ok
