Hi wayne,
Thanks for writing in.

The condition you are suffering from can be scabies,tinea corporis,contact dermatitis etc.

Proper examination KOH scraping,patch testing,skin biopsy may be required for diagnosis.
Deltacortil is a steroid and long term intake is not advisable.
Consider visiting your GP or dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
You can take tab.Zyrtec for itching till you visit a doctor.

Hope this helps.
