Hello,

Apply a thin layer of ointment t hydrocortisone or lotion calamine on the areas affected. You should take care of your hygiene. Keep your skin clean. Keep skin moisturized. DO not touch or scratch. Take regular bath and use humidifiers. Avoid stress and anxiety. Get clinically examined by a dermatologist. You may be prescribed a course of prednisolone or antihistamine. Wet dressing and light therapy is equally effective.

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

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
