In brief: Protect
Avoid things that make you break out, soaps & wetness.
Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot. Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.

In brief: Avoid the allergens
Important to try to identify the offending allergens and try to avoid them. They can be food, plants, chemicals, materials, plant, pets.
If you cannot avoid them then you will need to rely on antihistamines and steroids to suppress the symptoms. You can see an allergist for allergy testing and desensitization treatments.

In brief: Find the cause
Allergic contact dermatitis is a rash aused by an allergy to specific substances (called allergens, which can be either chemical or "natural") that you are coming into contact with.
While topical steroids may help the rash, if you suspect you may have a rash due to a contact allergy, the best way to get rid of the rash is to avoid the allergen. Patch testing may help determine the exact allergan.
