Doctor-Bob :

If you are having a reaction to this substance, you may benefit from taking an antihistamine such as diphenhidramine.

Doctor-Bob :

Topically, allergic reactions can often be helped with hydrocortisone cream.

Doctor-Bob :

Are you there?

Doctor-Bob :

do you have a voice? are you interested in a conversation?

Doctor-Bob :

Savlon is an antiseptic and cleansing agent. This is not the right cream to use for this reaction. It could make it worse.

Doctor-Bob :

If you are confused or uncertain what to do here, make an appointment to see your doctor.
