Depends: If the problem is an itchy rash , then a low-potency cortisone such as Hydrocortisone may be helpful. Triamciolone may also be tried as long as you don't use it for more than a week. Clobetasol is likely too strong. Tacrolimus can be used as maintenance - more to prevent recurrence than as a treatment. Consider seeing a dermatologist to find out what may be causing the problem.
