Sometimes -: Don't use it in place on a good moisturized though. Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) can reduce redness, pain, itching & swelling from a burn. It has anesthetic, anti-inflammatory & antibacterial / antifungal qualities.

Allergy or Chem Burn: The chemicals in hair color can be rather harsh and many people can have an allergic reaction or get a chemical burn from them. The instructions should be followed closely. If it was just burning that might be chemical but itching could be allergy. Be very cautious the next time you use it and do a test as directed since an allergy could be very serious.

Itchy & burning skin: Your doc or a dermatologist will determine if your skin need medical treatment. Beyond that, low vitamin B 12 can produce itching as can dry winter heat in homes. Sesame oil directly on the skin can help. Avoid skin lotions containing alcohol. Peace and good health.

See your MD: 45 year old lady with history of Hepatitis C, obesity presenting with prickly, tingling skin. You should see your MD. Depending upon the location of your symptoms there can be many different causes and more information is needed about your medical history, all medications, allergies, social history, and review of your current symptoms. Good luck.

Allergic to chlorine. Levels very high last night, still feeling rxn (skin burning/itchy, headache). can I go in a pool today or will It get worse?

Allergic to chlorine. Levels very high last night, still feeling rxn (skin burning/itchy, headache). can I go in a pool today or will It get worse?

Predictably yes: If you know that you are ALLERGIC you should probably find a salt treated pool instead of a chlorine one. If this is just an occasional reaction when levels are very high, you might mention your symptoms to the pool managers and suggest that it made you sick and ask them to check that there is actually not too high a level of chlorine that could do the same to others. Good luck!

I'm having severe itchy burning head from hair color allergy. Can I take two Loratadine tablets 10 milligram? One isn't helping very much

I'm having severe itchy burning head from hair color allergy. Can I take two Loratadine tablets 10 milligram? One isn't helping very much

Worthless: There is no role for loratadine in treating this type of allergic reaction. A physician needs to evaluate the reaction and treat appropriately. If sure of the cause, the best otc medication would be topical hydrocortisone. Step 1, of course, is to rinse away the hair dye as much as possible.

My skin surrounding my eyes are dry and flaky, particularly my eyebags, sometimes they're itchy and feels like they're burning. What do you think it is?

My skin surrounding my eyes are dry and flaky, particularly my eyebags, sometimes they're itchy and feels like they're burning. What do you think it is?

Eyelid dermatitis: Is a condition which causes the symptoms you are describing. It's often associated with eczema of the skin on other parts of your body. If your symptoms are severe enough, you may need some eye ointment to treat this. You should discuss this with your ophthalmologist. Be careful about using over the counter skin creams close to your eyes.

Itchy, burning skin with lacy rash that is under the skin. Symptoms come and go they may last one hour up to a few weeks?

Itchy, burning skin with lacy rash that is under the skin. Symptoms come and go they may last one hour up to a few weeks?

Depends on the cause: There are many things that could cause the skin to itch. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

14weeks pregnant. No infections or diseases. Itchy burning skin all over body. Gets even worse at night. What can be causing this?

14weeks pregnant. No infections or diseases. Itchy burning skin all over body. Gets even worse at night. What can be causing this?

Skin changes: I am not sure what is causing this. The hormones of pregnancy can cause skin changes that can make your skin oily or dry, which can cause sensitive skin and be uncomfortable. There are some other things that could cause itching later in pregnancy, but at this gestational age, I suspect it is just the skin adjusting to the new hormones in your body.

Dry, flaky skin on penis, appears in small round patches around the head & excess flaky skin below head. Not itchy/burning or red. What could this be?

Penile dermatitis: There are too many possibilities to make an educated guess. Most genital rashes are not STDs, and this doesn't sound like one. Best to see a doctor sooner rather than later. Start with your personal physician, or perhaps a dermatologist. Good luck.
