In brief: Nummular derm

Topical steroids are effective.
Less erythematous, less pruritic lesions may be treated with low-potency (class iii-vi) steroids. Severely inflamed lesions with intense erythema, vesicles, and pruritus require high-potency (class i-ii) preparations. Penetration of the medication is enhanced by occlusion or presoaking in a tub of plain water followed immediately (without drying) by application.
