Nivea Side Effects
Neck and chest and left side of head itch no swollen or rash help please??? sleep on furry pillows and use baby lotion and wash with dove and nivea
Skin irritation: Focalized itching without rash is rarely due to underlying organ disease. I suspect skin irritation (sun coming through car window, the furry pillow, etc). Try changing both the pillow and the lotion. Rec fragrance-free non-alcohol containing lotion such as Vanicream, Eucerin or CeraVe. Use 2-3 times daily and always after bathing.
Chemical: You must be referring to a chemical sunblock, since it is a topical skin product. Nivea has multiple different products, some with sunscreen and some without. Take a look at the label to see the SPF and active ingredient of sunscreen. Best are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Thanks for trusting in Healthtap!
Sunburn: Cool wet compresses are a good treatment for acute sunburn. After a cool or tepid shower, applying a light moisturizer can keep the skin hydrated and control some of the peeling. Best of all is prevention with regular use of a sunscreen SPF 30-50. Higher doesn't help much - don't pay more for higher SPFs and do look for UVA / UVB protection.
No...: Don't believe either of those products has any effect on skin pigmentation.

Wrong forum: This is a medical forum and I find it difficult to relate your question to anything related to medicine and health.
No: Deodorant is safe as it is topical and limited to the armpit usually.
Yes: But won't work.Get a more detailed answer ›
Skin lightening: No. It is very unlikely that a non-prescription lotion will lighten your skin.
Yes: The moisturizer will not do any harm. I trust that you are under the care of a doctor for the sake of your and your baby's health, Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
Dear doc, everytime I try to use nivea soft I have a breakout, I have oily combination skin, could it be causing the cause?
Possibily: From what you are saying the application of Nivea seems to be too occlusive for your skin causing an Acne breakout. There are other light, non-comedogenic products such as Cetaphil $ CeraVe
Acne: Anything that causes the skin pores to get plugged up can contribute to acne. Be sure any facial cream or product used is labeled as noncomedogenic. That means that it will not contribute to acne. Some people may still be sensitive to those products and get a reaction. See the doctor for advice if still having the breakouts.
Second degree burn: I would not use Nivea on this burn. It has perfumes and additives which will not help the situation. I would stick to a straight aloe product, or a prescription burn creme like silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) daily until it heals over. Once it heals be sure to use sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide meticulously to minimize the scarring! Hope you are feeling better!
