have you tried any medication?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They can be a little bit itchy but not enough for me to want to itch at it. I haven't tried any medication
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.


Most likely this is a type of atopic dermatitis.

Allergic reaction is a common example.

Hence a steroid ointment like Hydrocortisone 1% can be tried twice daily for 2 weeks.

Improvement should be noted.
