In brief: Hydrocortisone

The best way to treat this contact dermatitis is to avoid the allergen or irritant that caused the reaction.
Oral antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can relieve itching. Otc topical steroids like Hydrocortisone cream will help treat the dermatitis as well. If the rash continues to itch, or spreads you should contact your doctor.
