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. ...Read more
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! ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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! ...Read more

Yes: A girl would much rather kiss a boy with soft lips than one with really dry lips. And it you don't kiss- healthy lips look more attractive than dried, peeling, chapped ones. Don't let being a boy stop you from taking care of your skin and your healthy. If you find products with sunscreen in them -all the better. Take care. ...Read more

Dermatologist: You need to see a dermatologist about this. Already you've had a serious adverse reaction to an over-the-counter topical medication. Please don't try another skin whitening product. Also, don't use any creams or scrubs that may cause irritation. Inflammation & irritation will only make things worse. Best wishes. ...Read more
