Allergic reaction? After using TBS hand cream, tiny pin-prick blisters have come up. All over hand but not noticeable. Only hurts when pressed. Help!

If it is only on the: Surface of your hands or hand that you put the cream on, then it is possible you have an allergic reaction. If you put cream on both hands and only have these lesions on 1 hand, it is then unlikely you would have reaction only on 1 hand. Consider other substances or plant poisons (poison ivy etc.) or parasites that could potentially cause these lesions. I would recommend you see a physician. ...Read more

Not unusual: With severe and generalized skin involvement due to an allergic reaction, it is not unusual for complete resolution of the rash to take two weeks or more. As long as there are no new rashes appearing you need to do nothing except take an antihistamine as needed for itch relief. Make sure you inform any future health care providers of your allergy to amoxicillin. ...Read more
