Hi,
Thanks for writing in HCM.
The condition can be contact dermatitis,tinea corporis, acneform eruption etc.
The proper diagnosis and treatment can be suggested only after examination.
A visit to dermatologist will help in establishing diagnosis.
Till the time you can take tab cetirizine twice daily for symptomatic relief.
Hope this helps.
Regards
