sorry no.

No problem but could you describe it for me?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There is a not a lot to see the irration is little lumps under skin I think the shampoo burnt me


For that I suggest the following--

Over the counter topical Caladryl lotion applied three times a day

Lidocaine cream applied three times a day

And cold showers

That should clear it up in a few days

Please let me know if you need any more information
