Customer Question
I am in costa...

I am in costa Rica. I have a rash that started Monday (now Wednesday night) it was just red, didn't seem raised and didn't itch. Now today, I think but am not entirely sure after I sprayed bug spray on my legs blisters began to form. Now it looks absolutely terrible and I am freaking out being in a foreign country. Can you help me.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I don't think so

This seems to be an allergic reaction.

You would need to take an anti itching medication called Claritine ( Cetrizine / Loratidine ) once daily at night for 10 days.

You can apply a 1 % hydrocortisone cream on the area twice a day for 10 days.

You can clean the area with Cetaphil cleansing lotion twice a day .

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

Regards

Dr Pravin

Can I still go in the swimming pool?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 7 months ago

Avoid swimming pool use as it may contain chlorine and dry out the area more causing it to spread.

Please avoid for a period of 2 days .

Regards

Dr Pravin

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
