I have a big swollen rash on my arm

Does that itch?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
it does

Nothing too serious here

It's a contact dermatitis allergic skin situation--sometimes from new soaps or detergents but many times the trigger can't be determined

For that I suggest over the counter topical hydrocortisone cream and Caladryl lotion both applied together twice a day for five days along with a daily oral 24 hour Claritin to clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Am I able to buy it from pharmacy ?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I thought that it was connected with my keto diet . Is this diet safe?

Yes--all that is over the counter. It has nothing to do with your keto diet and that's safe
