Hello, this is Dr. E. Greetings from New York! I'm so glad you posted your question for me to answer, and I aim to provide you with accurate info.

 

You're going to need prednisone (steroid pills) to get this dermatitis under control. Benadryl should help during night time, then use loratadine 10 mg a day (nondrowsy allergy medication over the counter).
