Suggest treatment for itchy red rashes on armpits, stomach and thigh area

On 8/11 I noticed a rash around both my arm pits going down my torso and some on my stomach and inner thigh area. I consulted a DR. And he said it wa just contact dermatitis and to take Benadryl. It s been a week and the redness and itching have slightly calmed down, but it s still there. More pink than red. I m very worried.

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, hypersensitivity allergic condition is very likely if it is not responding to Diphenhydramine then second generation long acting antihistamine can be used and best would be "Tab Levocetirizine 10 mg" three time in day, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
