Dry skin: In the winter months, the first thing I consider would be dry skin. Try using unscented soap and apply a skin moisturizer all over within 3 minutes after bathing to see it this helps . It may take a few days for the skin to calm down. If problem persists, then need to consult a dermatologist or allergist. ...Read more

Insect bite /Allergy: Anytime you get an insect bite, wash with soap and water to prevent infection, then put Benadryl (diphenhydramine) lotion.

Is calamine lotion the same as benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Is calamine lotion the same as benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

No: Caladryl has Benadryl (diphenhydramine) in it but calamine does not. Do not use caladryl or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) lotion on your skin because they may sensitize you or make you allergic to benadryl (diphenhydramine). A nice tip - put calamine lotion in the fridge before using it - it will soothe more if it is cold. ...Read more

Contact dermatitis: Most rashes that are fine and itchy are related to an allergic reaction to a substance that the skin came in contact. On the face, it could be a soap, cosmetic, or an airborne substance. It may respond to Hydrocortisone cream that could be applied 3 times a day. The 1% cream that is available otc is safe to use on your face for a week or so, but if there is no response, get it checked out. ...Read more

Prednisone & clindycine with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) & cetaphil eczema calming lotion. My face is now scanned over, no more weeping. How long will this last?

Prednisone & clindycine with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) & cetaphil eczema calming lotion. My face is now scanned over, no more weeping. How long will this last?

Depends: Prednisone will likely control most skin inflammation but may cause serious side effects if taken for a long time. It is also unusual for atopic eczema to involve the face alone. Whether the condition will return or not depends on the actual cause of the disease. If clindamycin is used at low dose regularly as an anti-inflammatory agent , it may well control the disease process. ...Read more

Cortisone creams: While Benadryl (diphenhydramine) might provide some anti- itch relief, topical cortisone creams will often time give a better result. Of course, discontinuing the lotion is an important first step. ...Read more
