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 ?

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. ...Read more

Irritant Dermatitis: Otc Hydrocortisone and/or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream can help unless you have any open sores.
