Sun protection: Allergic reaction to the henna. The most important thing you can do for the next several months is to aggressively protect the skin from sun exposure. This means broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen, and to wear a glove when driving and keep the area covered. Exposure to sunlight will it increase the chances of increased/decreased pigmentation in the affected skin where you had the allergic reaction. ...Read more

Please tell every doctor you go to that the last time you took amoxicillin you had itching and a rash, it is very important. Drug allergies can be fatal. ...Read more
