This : This sounds like contact dermatitis which is a common problem and should be evaluated by a dermatologist.

Contact Dermatitis: Sounds like either an allergic or irritant contact dermatitis. Seeing a physician could help to get this under control since topical medication does not sound like it will be enough with the spreading and weeping.
