Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It may be some allergy. ...contact allergic dermatitis. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to take a course of steroid in tapering dose. Take antihistaminics like cetirizine 10 mg daily.Apply steroid cream. Avoid contact with suspected allergens.

Hope this helps.
