Pinky Tiny Pimples-like Rashes on the back of both hands & starts to feel itchy after few hours...spreading to arm slowly...can I take Cetirizine?

You could but..: a better choice might be diphenhydramine (Benadryl) but the cetirizine is less likely to make you drowsy so you can start with that and if it doesn't work try the diphenhydramine.

Often, oral antibiotics are needed and even accutane. If scarring is present do not delay seeing a dermatologist to prevent further scarring. www.drbader. Com. ...Read more
