How do I get rid of the rash on my chest from my allergic reaction to icy hot? It burns and itches

Irritant Dermatitis: Otc Hydrocortisone and/or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream can help unless you have any open sores. I would also recommend using an otc oral antihistamine to decrease the itch associated with this. If it spreads or worsens, then it could also be infected. Be vigilant and keep a diary if it persists so you can tell your doctor about this. Also, a picture is worth a 1, 000 words to a doctor. ...Read more

I have a rash type of alergic reaction on my face it burns and itches and is really red what can I do to get rid of it?

See dermatologist: You need to give more details on the distribution of the rash such as whether it crosses the bridge of your nose. I suspect what you may have is rosacea which is aggravated by any increase in core body temperature. But on skin rash, one really needs to look at the lesions themselves to venture a guess. ...Read more

Improve, yes...: But get rid of, no (this applies to all scars.) true keloids can be very difficult to deal with.

Urticaria: The fancy name for what you have is called "urticaria". If you didn't do anything the rash will clear on it's own. However, to speed up the process take 1 Claritin (loratadine) every morning. In addition, rub in 1%hydrocortisone cream 2 times each day for 20 seconds. Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these tend to increase the appearance of the redness. ...Read more

Got a rash after using the intuition razor (the one with the soap already on there) could this be an allergic reaction or razor bumps. What can I do to get rid of them?

Keep area clean: The reaction is most likely an irritant reaction from the razor. Depending on the area of the bumps, I would just try keeping the area clean with soap and water first. If it was bad and would not go away, you could try an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. I would not use this treatment on the face or private areas. ...Read more
