Suggest treatment for winter rash

Hi, I have a winter rash every year on several parts of my body, but it resolves at spring. Now I have one on my arm that is very itchy, and it s somewhat swollen, I have tried many moisturizers and also bacitracin. It doesn t heal, and bleeding when scratching. Also I have upper back pain for a week, I suspect my working chair is too cushioned, and not suitable. I also feel dry even I drink a lot of water.

Hello,

As per your case history, you are suffering from Atopic rash.

My treatment advice is:
1. Do not squeeze the lesions as it may worsen the condition.
2. Apply an emollient cream like Enmoist cream twice daily on it.
3. Apply a mild antibiotic plus steroid cream like Fusiderm-B cream twice daily on it.
4. Other treatment options are oral antibiotics, and oral steroid taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harshit Bhachech
