Am having an allergic reaction to laser.I have a very sensitive skin, almost any way to remove hair is hard.Now my skin is full of rash bumps what i do?

Am having an allergic reaction to laser.I have a very sensitive skin, almost any way to remove hair is hard.Now my skin is full of rash bumps what i do?

Not allergic: Unless you are allergic to the gel or topical anesthetic used , the bumps are more likely inflammatory response to the laser injury. In hair removal, the intent is to destroy the hair follicles without harming the skin but this is difficult in dark skin people. Try some topical cortisone cream. Sometimes using a bleaching cream on the target prior to treatment may reduce the skin injury. ...Read more

I'm having an eczema allergy. Is it normal by applying moisturizer to my skin everyday? Or my skin will suffer from rashes

Yes: Eczema is not just an allergy, it is more of an atopy - it is genetic and there is a predisposition to react more to any specific allergen (more than other people). You need to keep your skin well hydrated, so yes you need to apply moisturizers daily. When you have flare ups which are not controlled by moisturizers, you will need steroid creams to decrease the rash. ...Read more

Is it safe to use cetaphil moisturizing lotion on the face? I have a rash near my mouth and it is causing flaky skin

Is it safe to use cetaphil moisturizing lotion on the face? I have a rash near my mouth and it is causing flaky skin

Cetaphil good!!!: Cetaphil will HELP your face. Throw away the polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin). Like neosporin, bacitracin, and triple antibiotic, it is a common sensitizer, often causing just what you describe. Since none of these seem to be of any use, there is no reason to ever use any of them. ...Read more

I've always had sensitive skin rash around my neckline . My hair and my clothes agitate it. It reappears regularly. Possibly an allergy? What to do?

I've always had sensitive skin rash around my neckline . My hair and my clothes agitate it. It reappears regularly. Possibly an allergy?  What to do?

Eczema vs. Contact: You may have just an irritant reaction to sweat and friction at the neck line, but you also may have a perfume/cologne allergy or a nickel allergy (found in jewelry of many types). Otc Hydrocortisone 1% may help if used 3 times a week or so. If the reaction is not controlled easily there would be a benefit from seeing a doctor to discover the true cause or use stronger prescriptions. ...Read more

I have a problem with my skin it is very dry and sensitive.It becomes reddish when i'm exposed to sun can u please suggest me a good spf?

Sun and SPF: Use a sun lotion that has SPF of 40 to 60. Make sure it has a built in moisturizer as well as protection for both UVA and UVB light. Don't forget to reapply if you are outdoors for an extended period of time. Despite what you hear from the company and despite the SPF or "waterproofing", even the best only lasts about 4 hours. ...Read more

Rash lining and inside lips; started with itching, turned to burning later on.. I have started using the vasoline and it is working wonderful, but I wanted to find out if this is most likely a skin contact rash or something ingested?

Rash lining and inside lips; started with itching, turned to burning later on.. I have started using the vasoline and it is working wonderful,  but I wanted to find out if this is most likely a skin contact rash or something ingested?

Could be either one: What you describe could come from contact with a substance, like lip product, that you came in contact with. You may be allergic to one of the components. It is also possible that you had an allergic reaction to something you ate. Try to look back over the time just before you got the rash and figure out what it might have been. It does not sound like herpes if burning went away quickly. ...Read more

What to do if I got quite red irritated skin and I just want to get skin like a babies bottom, obviously not the smell and nappy rash, as this wouldit!?

Baby skin: No, you probably don't want baby bottom skin!! Haha. Keep your skin clean, avoiding harsh soaps (including antibacterial soaps) and chemical irritants. Use SUNSCREEN!! If your skin is dry and irritated, use a good moisturizer regularly- no perfumes or colors. Don't scratch and pick at your skin. See your doctor for a regular check of your skin, especially for any moles, etc. that change. ...Read more

Eczema: Chronic itchy skin rash at night is certainly possible to be eczema.
