Hi,

You could try some oral antihistamine or antiallergic medications for your symptoms like loratadine or cetrizine. Apply calamine lotion at the site to help soothe the itching.

You should wear lose clothes, maintain personal hygiene and do not use any doubtful cosmetic products.

If your symptoms still persist , you should take a consultation with your doctor.

Let us know if you have any other doubts and also post us about how you are doing.

Hope this helps.

Regards.
