I've got rush on my face due to the new cosmetic. What can I use to get rid off it? I did take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) pill and used fluticasone propionate cream, 0.005%

If: If you feel the rash on your face is due to a new cosmetic, I would recommend that you stop the product and use otc Hydrocortisone cream. I would consider a visit to a dermatologist who can help make sure the rash is not due to other common facial rashes like seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, and perioral/perinasal dermatitis. If you are truly allergic (as opposed to irritated) by the cosmetic, allergy patch testing can help determine the allergen responsible for your rash. ...Read more

I use sunscreen& either burn or breakout. Use fluticasone propionate cream, calamin lotion, lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream on sunburn? If not wants good to use?

Apply cool...: ...Washcloths often, and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation. If you burn after applying a sunscreen, you are not using one that is strong enough, or applying it often enough. Breakouts are usually from the vehicle. So choose a spray or thin lotion with a high spf (55 or higher) and apply it often while you are in the sun. ...Read more
