Can I use 1% silver sulfadiazine cream of poison izy rash? If so, do I continue to use calamine lotion?
USELESS: Silver sulfadiazine will not relieve you in any way. Calamine lotion is barely effective. "Poison" ivy is a violent reaction which will occur only on those allergic to it and only where the sap came on the skin. A prescription strength cortisone is very effective. Clobetasol gel or augmented betamethasone cream,. OK to wash. No special soap makes any difference. Not contagious. Will not spread. ...Read more

I have anal itching. Today i bought walgreens calahist medicated calamine lotion, but it says external use only. Can I use it on my anus?
Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) lotion: You can try topical Benadryl (diphenhydramine) lotion/cream, or a mild cortisone cream (0.5% if covering large area, 1% ok if localized / small areas). Try one at a time & see how they work for you. If neither, will need zyrtec + Pepcid (generics ok) +/- prescribed steroid pills. See urgent care if no relief. ...Read more
