What do you recommend if I have a big cut on my leg and I have put savlon antiseptic cream on it, and I wanted to know if it was the same as neosporin?
No: Main component of savlon is cetrimide which is an antiseptic. On the other hand neosporin is an antibiotic which is effective against infection. Savlon protects against infection. Neosporin treat infection. You cannot substitute savlon with neosporin. Use of savlon will reduce the changes of infection and use of neosporin. ...Read more

A itchy redness or rash has appeared on my inner foreskin recently. Antiseptic cream helps but it never goes away. No other symptoms. Should I worry?
Not fungal: Heat rash is not a fungal infection and is best treated with cool soothing oatmeal baths and applying corn starch powder before exercising or going out in the heat. You could if needed apply Chlohexidine 2% to 4% to the affected area for 15 seconds and rinse, avoiding eye contact ...Read more
Heat rash under bra. Can I dry it out with rubbing alcohol? Creams don't work. Bath with baking soda is awesome but I can't live in my tub.
It depends: Sometimes the rash can be caused by an infection whether bacterial or fungal. Keeping it dry is important. Hair dryers after bathing and powders are generally recommended. Weight loss and even breast reduction surgery can be considered in severe cases. Rather than rubbing alcohol I would first try aloe vera or another topical known to soothe and address mild topical infections. ...Read more

I history of staph infections I had a heat rash in august that will go away with antifungal cream but always returns been using antifungal 3 months?
Heat rash: First off - staph is a bacterial infection so the anti fungal shouldn't work - heat rashes are generally non infectious and respond to products like talc power or gold bond powder if it is truly a staph infection - generally oral antibiotics are required or at least a topical antibiotic. ...Read more

Dermatitis: Perianal dermatitis can be caused by moisture and/or friction. Try avoiding very tight clothing, keep the area clean and dry and apply a cortisone type ointment. Also avoid over exuberant wiping after a bowel movement and finish cleansing with warm water applications and then pat the area dry. If no improvement consult a proctologist or dermatologist. ...Read more
Is using the hydrocortisone 1% cream for the heat rash a good idea? I used it for this heat rash on my right breast, but it's healing up well.
My daughter is almost 10 months and has a rash on her back. It looks like a heat rash, no redness. I meant to grab the hydrocortisone cream, but I applied the benadryl cream on accident. I immediately washed it off using baby wash and water.?
Sounds fine: Benadryl cream for a few minutes or more, on a 10-month old, should not have any noticeable effect. If such a baby has ill symptoms such as fussiness, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or pain, she may have some other illness instead of just a heat rash. If worried, parents may contact their pediatrician for advice or an in-person exam. ...Read more

Just keep clean...: Some degree of pain, redness, and "swelling" at incision are expected, worst for 1-2 days, and get better day by day afterwards. As long as it moves in such expected postop course, you're ok. All you need to do is do nothing but keep the incision dry and clean. Why? What we do after skin edges seal will make no difference to the tissue beneath the skin. If still in doubt, see doc timely. ...Read more
Fast Healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
Depends on how deep: Of course I am assuming the offending material has been well washed off. Redness, like a sunburn, can often be treated with a mild steroid. Blistering may require a burn cream. Third degree might require surgery. Best to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon in person for a true evaluation and plan. ...Read more
Savlon cleansing wipes with antiseptic. These should not be used on wounds. I cleaned a small cut with one without realising. Is this dangerous?
No.: Savlon wipes are marketed for "on the go" wound cleansing and hand sanitizing. It would be more "dangerous" to delay cleansing a fresh wound. Most likely Savlon wipes contain the antiseptic chlorhexidine which is often used in hospitals & other medical settings. Check the ingredients on the container and use them only as directed. You should be perfectly safe. ...Read more
Had shingle jab a week ago have a very painful and swollen arm headache and sweating been putting savlon on arm to try and ease it for the rash?
First time or recur: The wording of your question suggests that you are familiar with shingles, having a "jab"? The treatment of the initial episode is quite different than treating recurring post-herpetic neuralgia/pain. I don't think Savlon, an antibiotic cream, should help. Initial rash & blisters best treated at home with moist compresses, calamine lotion, & topical cream for inflammation. Next, Rx. Meds from MD. ...Read more
See below: If heat rashes truly - impossible to say. But are they heat rashes? I would get the pm looked at. ...Read more
No: An antiseptic cream such as savlon when used in superficial cut or injury will reduce or prevent an infection. Neosporin treat an infection. ...Read more
Chemical burn: For healing, the antiseptic cream is not the most important element. More important are thorough initial rinsing and cleansing of the wound; then application of a dressing like vaseline gauze covered by sterile gauzes, and then a thick wrap (like ace or coban) to protect from ordinary dirt will produce good healing. If you want to use an antibacterial, I would use Bacitracin (fewer allergies). ...Read more
