The tablet has probably been prescribed to you by a family physician and not a qualified dermatologist. 120 mg is a dose for mild respiratory allergies and not skin allergies which require 180-540mg per day. Also, it only suppresses allergies and cure requires evaluation of the root cause. Skin allergies require early and aggressive treatment otherwise they become long term

visit your dermatologist at the earliest
