Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a contact dermatitis. I suggest using antihistamines such as Cetirizine 10 mg daily. I also suggest to use Cortisone cream such as Hydrocortisone cream for local application.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
