So I would treat the itchiness with dandruff shampoo and Hydrocortisone cream1%, and I would apply warm compresses to the lump. See a doctor if you are not better after a week or two. ...Read more

And if it is sensitive skin, (mastocytosis) that needs to be fixed. And there's good treatment for it. ...Read more
