Hi,

Can you send us a picture of the lesions? Rashes with itching can suggest atopic dermatitis or contact dermatitis among few other conditions. Treatment depends on the cause and include steroid creams and antihistamines. Kindly consult a dermatologist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
