In brief: Psoriasis
Most likely psoriasis, from your description, although we'd have to see it to be sure.
The over-the-counter ointments are not much use against it, unless it's really mild; you'll need to see a dermatologist to get a prescription.

From your description and location sounds like psoriasis which responds to steroid creams and ointments prescribed by your doctor.
