Thank you for your medical query at
Will you be able to upload an image of the rash? That will help me guide you better?
Does it increase on exposure to sunlight?

Patient replied :

Well it does increase when its hot outside and am under the sun but if its winter it has no effect on me So you can say that temperature increases it not sunlight


Thanks for posting your query. I can understand your concern.

It looks like an eczema. I would recommend application of cortisone cream mixed with Mupirocin cream twice a day for two weeks. It doesn't seem to be due to allergy to milk or cheese or eggs.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
Take care

Patient replied :

Unfortunately am allergic to cortisone :/

You can apply just Mupirocin and Calamine lotion instead of cortisone.
