It may be possible that you have developed an allergy to one of the ingredients in Head and Shouldersor even one of the ingredients in your Canestan/hydrocortisone. I would switch to Hydrocortisone ointment 1% as it contains much fewer ingredients than the cream. Avoid Head and Shoulders.
I would be happy to look at a picture to be sure that this is what you have.
Hi, thanks very much, I have taken the pictures attached however the reaction has died down since last evening but is obviously still visible. I did not use head and shoulders today so will stop using completely. I will speak to my doctor in order to change the canestan/hydrocortisone prescription.
Any thoughts on the pictures would be appreciated and hopefully if it is just the head and shoulders or canes tan I can stop using.
