Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes domboro will help with its soothing effect.

Over the counter Hydrocortisone 1% cream also may be tried twice daily for itching.

Another possibility can be shingles outbreak.

Or please get it chek ed by your doctor also.
