TREATMENT: 1) Avoid CONTACT allergens by stop going outdoors . 2) Sunscreen lotion to avoid trigger factor like UVA. 3) frequent bathing After coming indoors, wearing fresh cotton cloths. 4) applying the steroids to reduce the intensity. 5) Tab fexofenadine 280 mg for 3 weeks course. 6) If want fast results Azathioprin 50 mg twice a day in first day and 300 mg per month for 3 months gives full remission.
