Hey! I have the same thing and there is nothing you can do except get your flare under control and even then it can take a while - mine open up and leave awful scars. It always happens on my legs and arms until this last time - it happened on my face - that was really bad.
Good luck but again nothing helps me at all...it hurts and itches even when water hits it - showers are hell.
