Any itching with this?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
No just swelling and discomfort
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 9 days ago.


Even without the itching this is an allergic problem--could be from new soaps, detergents, foods etc but many times we never figure out the trigger

For now I suggest either benedryl or Claritin and ibuprofen but if this goes on more than two more days you need to see your doctor for a cortisone injection or a short course of oral prednisone

Please let me know if you need any more information
