How can you treat an allergic reaction to lubrication gel.

Resolved Question:

How can you treat an allergic reaction to KY lubrication gel. My symptoms are "burning"! I don't want to pay for an office visit with my doctor.

The first thing would be to wash off all traces of the KY gel, which I assume you've done. After that, hydrocortisone cream with aloe is a good choice, plus avoid KY gel in the future. It should be better within a day or two, and back to normal within 3-5 days. Best wishes.
