As per your history, it may be due to allergic reactions.

For that, you can apply hydrocortisone ointment locally. Take tablet loratadine for itching.

Alternatively, you can apply Aloe Vera gel locally. Avoid tablet biotin.

In case of severe itching, breathing difficulty you may require urgent medical care.

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