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.

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.

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.

I had an allergic reaction to food and there is a rash on my face how do 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.

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.

How can you get rid of an allergic reaction rash that's on my face and neck? Help?

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.

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

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.
