Benadryl (diphenhydramine) spray is ok but there are other otc stuff such as tricalm, itch x that may be more effective. I would suggest that you space the application 30-minute or more apart and see your doctor if the problem persists. ...Read more
Depends on the rash: If it is an allergic rash or itchy, consider Allegra or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (but might make you tired). A steroid cream may work if it looks like eczema.

The antibiotic portion carries the risk of an allergic reaction and can confound the clinical picture. ...Read more

Not a treatment: While Betamethasone may reduce very inflammatory acne temporarily, it a very strong steroid and should not be used on the face.

If you still need more treatment, please see your dermatologist. ...Read more
