Dear customer

Thank you for attaching the picture.I have seen it.

The picture you have sent & the symptoms you have described of having rash on right wrist and blisters under skin on fingers along with rash on foot & scalp since last 24 hours are suggestive of skin disease known as urticaria.

A hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) occurs in the skin, causing inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become blisters,rashes & itchy.

The following will help you greatly:

  • Take tablet zyrtec once a day.It contains Cetirizine & is a second-generation antihistamine
  • Apply cream containing hydrocortisone.This will reduce the blisters,rashes & itching.All these medications are available at your counter without any prescription.

Usually this provides results in 12-24 hours.If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor for blood tests/allergy testing to find out the allergen/causative agent and prescription oral medications like anti histamine,oral steroids & other medications will then be prescribed accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets improved with these treatments.

So bot***** *****ne is that you need to take the above described medications & watch your symptoms.

Hope this helped.
