Hi and thanks for the query.

This seems like a localized inflammation and can be atopic dermatitis. I would suggest that you use Fluticasone propionate ointment apply this thrice a day on the area along with an oral anti allergic like Cetrizine or Loratidine twice a day. Have this seen by your PCP when you get the chance.
