Fixed drug eruption. The main goal of treatment is to identify the causative agent and avoid it. Treatment for fixed drug eruptions (FDEs) otherwise is symptomatic. Systemic antihistamines and topical corticosteroids may be all that are required. In cases in which infection is suspected, antibiotics and proper wound care are advised.

DRUG REACTION FIX DRUG REACTION

Post history of similar eruption which resolved spontaneously suggest that it is fixed drug reaction

Eczema Lichen planus Psoriasis
