Okay. How long should I expect it to take for it to clear up with that treatment?

If it is allergy, it would be gone within a week. But if you are exposed to the allergen, you would get it again. You should think what the allergen is and avoid it. If it is not improved in a week, you should see a dermatologist to have it examined.
