How To Get Rid Of Allergic Reaction Bumps
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.
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
A few possibilities: This could be due to allergies, dry eyes, or eye infections. The treatments are very different. For allergies, zaditor (ketotifen) is a good otc eye medicine. For dry eyes, lubricating tears are necessary. For infection, usually of the eyelids, start with eyelid warm compress and diluted baby shampoo scrubs. You should have a baseline exam with your eye doctor.
Cortisone creams: Most allergic skin rashes (eczema, allergic contact dermatitis such as poison ivy, insect bites) respond to topical corticosteroid creams. Hydrocortisone 1% is effective for mild conditions, and there are stronger products which are available with a prescription. If the rash is from hives, oral antihistamines, such as allegra, zyrtec, and Claritin (loratadine) should work. If it does no respond, see an M.D.
Epinephrine: Epinephrine or Adrenalin is the most effective treatment for severe allergies and it works in just minutes. Antihistamines can take up to a couple of hours and work for mild allergies. Steroid medication can take a couple to several days to become effective. Most importantly, avoid the allergies in the first place if possible.
Epinephrine: Identifying the trigger and Epinephrine (adrenalin) are the most effective ways to treat a serious allergic reaction. An allergist can be of help when the allergic trigger is in question or symptoms are severe. Epinephrine takes only minutes to be effective while antihistamines can take up to an hour or more.
A miracle: Is what you are wishing for, because you did not specify what type of allergic reaction you developed, can you be more specific?
Food allergies: Most mild food allergy symptoms go away quickly once you stop eating the food. For severe or persistent symptoms you should seek medical help.
Cream: A steroid cream and an oral antihistamine may help a bit but it is likely to persist for a couple of days..
It depends: It depends on what caused the rash. For example, if it is due to poison ivy then medications will take several days to clear the rash. Hives may clear over night with steroid pills but other medicines with less side effects may be desirable although they probably would take longer to kick in.
Moisturizer and time: After an allergic reaction that affects the skin, it can take time for the skin to heal. There are many different types of skin reactions including blisters, hives, sandpaper-like, oozing, sunburn type, etc. As long as the trigger of the skin reaction has been removed, antihistamines may help with itching, but moisturizers especially ointments applied within 3 minutes of a bath can help dry skin.
Time and meds: Most medication reactions will begin to improve within 48 hours after stopping the medication. To ease the symptoms of a drug allergic reaction, antihistamines such as zyrtec, Claritin (loratadine) or Allegra can help. On occasion oral steroids like Prednisone are needed. If the rash is blisters or progressing, then a doctor's visit is important for further evaluation and treatment.
It depends: If the allergy was vulvar swelling from a food product then, Benadryl may work. If it is due to contact to the region from something in your underwear or clothing then a anti-inflammatory cream may be needed as determined by a MD visit and accurate diagnosis of the cause.
I got an allergic reaction on my face and have red dots all over my face. How can I get rid of it?
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.See 1 more doctor answer
I had an allergic reaction to a high perfume soap. After using antibacterial soap, the spots are becoming black. How do I get rid of black spots?
Time: After an allergic reaction on the skin, there can be either hyperpigmentation (darker) or hypopigmentation (lighter) areas on the affected skin. These pigment changes will gradually improve over time and usually do not require treatment. If the very dark areas are painful or blistering, see your dermatologist.
Allergic reaction: If it is true allergic reaction, then avoidance of the allergen will curb the reaction hopefully. Using an anti-allergy preparation such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night might help. Hydrocortisone cream once to twice daily on the affected areas excluding eyes may be tried for no longer than 2 weeks at a time. If those fail, definitely see a doc.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
