Prescribed Levocetrizine for urticaria. Side effects of prolonged Sofradex usage?

I am suffering from itchy skin for the last 3 years and the dermatologist has diagnosed it as mild uticaria and prescribed prolonged usage of livocetrizine, which I am using now. While the itching sensation on the other parts of the body came under control, I started having itching skin on my beard area. The doctor diagnosed it as eczyma and prescribed several creams including momatozone, tacrolimus and sofradex. I am curerntly using sofradex and it seems the itching is under control. However, whenever I stop using this, the itching comes back. Is there any side effects for the prolonged usage of sofradex? The application of tacrolimus cream has resulted in severe itching and I stopped it without using further. I also use restoroderma lotion during the day on the affected area

Hi pinku! Did you take any oral antifungal tab like fluconazole. You need it. along with sofradex you need antifungal cream too. Apply it but don't rub. The medication you are taking will not heal you completely. I hope my advise helped you. Take care. Bye.
