What you have is an auto eczematization. This condition starts from one area ( for example hand ) and then starts to other areas like legs abdomen , chest area due to an immunological process.
This looks more like an autoeczematization . This is also called id reaction and is associated with a lot of itching.
There is nothing sinister nor is there anything malignant in this condition.
What oral tablets have you taken for this condition?
Creams play a very minimal role in healing this condition
Thank you for your reply.
This is definitely not measles . Measles is related to a macular papular rash.
This is nothing serious.It is not contagious.
You can take Oral Claritine which can be taken twice a day for 10 days. This is available otc.
The other option is to take a short course of oral corticosteroids therapy but this would need a prescription from your doctor.I would suggest that you should take Claritine to begin with.
For application , you can apply Calamine lotion on the area.
Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.
You can do a skin patch test at an Allergy clinic on your back .
Or the other option is to get a blood allergy test done. It is a great idea.
For now , you should not treat Keratosis Pilaris as the body may react to the medication given for Keratosis Pilaris.
After your reaction settles down , then you can start application of retinol based creams on the KP area for around 3 months daily at night.
