Hello,
From the symptoms the possibility of eczema needs to be ruled out. Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Allergic reaction can occur to strong soaps, Solvents, chemicals, certain foods, food additives, plants, metals, cosmetics, even urine and faeces of some animals (dust mites).
Treatment includes avoidance of the allergen, oral antihistaminics; topical application of corticosteroids. You may try application of calamine on the affected site. It may work by soothing the skin.

Please seek an appointment with a dermatologist for your complete examination and for figuring out the allergen to which you have allergy.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
