Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.

Thank you for sharing the picture. Are you sure you've never had it before the dog licked your face?

May I know your age please?

Any skin rash elsewhere?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I never had it before and never had any skin issues like acne, etc. I'm 30 years old, heathly. No allergies apart from pollen.

Okay. You will need to to apply hydrocortisone 1 percent cream on the rash once daily. Do not apply for more than a week. Keep the area dry and don't scratch or pick lesions. You may continue with anti allergy meds like Cetrizine or loratidne.

Is there any option to buy it on the website? Will I need the prescription?

It's over the counter. You can get it from a store or pharmacy without prescription.
