Respected customer, thanks a lot for your input, and thanks again for visiting! A great place where you can find guidance and/or solution from the real experts. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation. The most likely cause of this can be fungal infection. You should start with over the counter available tablet benadryl twice daily for 5 days and apply over the counter available hydrocortisone cream mixed with Clotrimazole cream twice daily for 7 days. Hopefully, things will get better. If symptoms persist after 2 days, see your doctor as you may need oral drugs but I reassure you in the same way as I would have assured some of my family members that there is nothing serious behind this so please don't stress yourself.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I changed my cream recently

What is the name of that cream?

Oh yes I got the name. You shouldn't use that cream.

dove derma spa summer revived and dove nourishing body care visible glow self tan lotion

I am sorry but none of them are going to help with this and you should stop them for 10 days as one of them might be the reason for this discolouration.
