Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You are not tolerating well.

You will need to ask your doctor to take the implant out.

You can use topical hydrocortisone cream 2 times daily to control skin reaction.

Benadryl capsule also can be taken if itching gets worse.
Best wishes,
Please reply back if you need any further clarification.
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I’ve only had it a week ?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 7 days ago.

Usually you will get any skin reaction within that time.

You can also wait another week to see if it subsides.

Are you not suppose to try it for at least 90 days ?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 7 days ago.

Only if your allergic reaction does not get worse.

If your rash spreads or develops lot of swelling, then you have no other option but to get it removed.
