In brief: See dermatologist

You may have both allergic contact and irritant dermatitis.
Talk to a dermatologist or allergist to see what can be done. As long as you are in contact with the contact allergen , no treatment will work. On rare occasions, one may even become allergic to the cortisone used to treat the rash.
