Does this work
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

Very well Coral--thanks.

How long have you had this and does it itch at all?

And have you tried anything for it so far?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Started last night came up fairly quickly, it's feel irritated but only a tiny bit itchy, more sore almost like a prickly heat rash style feeling, took some piriteeze
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sorry for all the questions Cora but have you ever had this happen before and do you have any know allergies?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Never happened before and no known allergies.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK. It definitely looks allergic--perhaps a contact dermatitis from detergents or soaps or perhaps from something you ate;

The piriteze could well take care of it today or by tomorrow but if not you'd need to see a doctor for a prescription for a short course of oral prednisone.

In the meantime, either calendula cream or Eucerin cream topically will also help

Let me know if you need any more information please Coral
