Hi. Greetings. Thank you for the detailed history. Definitely there are oral medicines to control the condition. However, I would suggest them only if your symptoms are not controlled with topical medications. You could discuss the medicines like mtx, maxepa etc with your dermatologist or send me your details on follow up chat and I could suggest one to you. Hope this helps. Warm regards, Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, excel care hospital, Bangalore.
