Hi and welcome to HCM,
I understand it. Sometimes this happens and hence the manufacturers recommend a sensitivity test before each application. Even then a reaction is not predictable.
Please use betamethasone
ointment in the affected area twice a day. If there is skin peeling then you may need additional antiseptic coverage surfaz ointment containing a steroid
, antibacterial and antifungal preparation.
Do not apply antiseptic lotions as they are corrosive. A tablet of acetaminophene or ibuprofen
with milk will help control pain and burning sensation.
It will not go away instantly and will take a few hours.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
