See your doctor: This is what is called a "descriptive" path report. In these cases we construct a list of conditions that can produce this type of reaction pattern then try to narrow it down if possible. In these cases a good solid history needs to be taken to identify any possible cause (drug or other). I am afraid this can be a challenging process and sometimes we do not find the actual diagnosis. Good luck.

Not specific enough: "dermatitis" just means "inflammation of the skin". In other words, pretty much every rash is a "dermatitis". Without a more specific idea of what is going on, it is impossible to recommend treatment. Even if you are using "dermatitis" as a synonym for "eczema" (as some do), the possibilities are still too broad, since there are so many different kinds of eczema.

Nummular derm: Topical steroids are effective. Less erythematous, less pruritic lesions may be treated with low-potency (class iii-vi) steroids.
