From your history it sounds that you may have some residual eczema from your recent generalized allergic reaction. I would recommend applying to dry area a moisturizing lotion twice a day ( I like one with aloe but many brands are fine ) Also apply 1 percent hydrocortisone once a day to this area for up to 2 weeks ...

Eczema is a combination of dryness and hypersensitivity of skin ...

So treating the dryness and reducing inflammation with MILD topical steroid for limited time should give you good result ...

I hope that this is helpful for you
