Virtual consult/HT: A virtual consult with HT is available. It is probably a contact dermatitis from your description. Avoid harsh soaps and detergents. Apply low dose over the counter steroidal cream to the most affected areas twice daily. Consult with a physician and watch for worening, itching, respiratory difficulty.
