Hello and thank you for contacting us.

We truly understand your concern with regard to your current condition. From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • allergic reaction
  • eczema
  • psoriasis
  • insect bites
  • fungal/viral/bacterial infection
  • other skin conditions

There are also certain risk factors that might trigger such a condition:

  • warm weather
  • poor hygiene
  • obesity
  • use of antibiotics and corticosteroids
  • diabetes
  • incomplete drying of damp or wet skin

For the time being, I suggest you to

  • always ensure the body is hydrated
  • moisturize your skin using over the counter body lotion
  • prevent going to places that are too hot, too cold, or lack humidity
  • staying in a room with bad ventilation or dusty surrounding
  • immediately seek a doctor at the nearby clinic or hospital if conditions persist or getting worse

Ensure your body is always clean, healthy & ready. Grab these items to help you out.

However, according to your statement, we believe a thorough clerking, investigation and examination needs to be done first in order to clearly understand what we are facing at the moment. Correspondingly, the given information by you might only touched the surface of an underlying problem.
