Dear customer

Thank you for coming back online.

A hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) called dermatitis occurs in the skin, causing inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become reddish & itchy. Mast cells are the cells in the skin and mucous membranes that contain histamine. Release of histamine causes symptoms of dermatitis.

The following will help you greatly:

  • Take tab.Zyrtec.It contains Cetirizine & is a second-generation antihistamine.It is available over-the-counter (OTC).
  • Apply cream containing hydrocortisone.If the area is large then apply Calamine lotion.This will reduce the rashes/dermatitis symptoms & itching.All these medications are available at your counter without any prescription & will help you greatly.

If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
