Hello this is Dr. Michael Salama MD,It sounds like you've developed a case of contact dermatitis needing a prescription strength steroid cream like triamcinolone 0.1% twice daily. It is much more effective for cases which sound like yours but if it's severe like poison ivy you may need oral corticosteroids to control it.Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
