We want to know what is this and if it is contagious. and what do he need to do to get it cleared up
Hello thanks for your health query on ATD.
The rashes appear to be of allergic origin rather than of infective origin. Such rashes are grouped & highly itchy.
My advice use Betamethasone cream twice a day . Also use Tab Cetrizine 10 mg per day before sleep.
Hope it will give you relief in 10 days.
Please discuss with your physician and feel free to get back to us for the follow up.
