I am removing a tattoo on my foot and I think I might be

Customer Question

Hi, I am removing a tattoo on my foot and I think I might be having some reaction to either the vaseline or having put shoes on too early in the heat. It's very itchy and the area has like a red rash
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: Just since yesterday, when I put my shoes on and sweated in them. I had my laser session on Tuesday evening, maybe it was too soon for shoes
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I have xemacort cream with me and was wondering if that might help

To add to this, there's no bleed nor signs of infection. Seems like a simple rash due to sweats or allergy.

That is not infected...just irritated from the laser treatment.

No worries....
Does this make sense to you?
