How can I get rid of allergic rash on forehead and above eyes?

Identify trigger 1st: While treatment with topical steroid creams is helpful for most allergic rashes, one must be careful with prolonged use especially on the face/eyelids.

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 at night might help.

Are there sure ways to get rid of this allergic reaction rash from a pill?

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 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. ...Read more

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 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

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 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

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
