Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a photo for me on this page?
How long have you had it?
This is an allergic dermatitis and sometimes the triggers can be new soaps, detergents, foods, etc., but often the trigger isn't found.
The steroid pills are fine but at this point you need to see your doctor for a cortisone injection and for now you can also take over the counter benedryl or Claritin
Please let me know if you need any more information
Topical Caladry lotion can also help but you need a stronger treatment than the steroid pills for these like a cortisone injection
