Brief Ans-Local Reaction to Picato Gel-Report to your dermatologist !!

Hi Dear !! Thanks for your query to HCM.

You seem to suffer from Local Reaction to Picato Gel. Please upload a photo of the lesion so that I am better able to help.
This gel is known to cause Blisters/ Vesiculations in few case after application.
This is because of the local reaction to Picato Gel content and is cause of concern,which needs further care, for preventing its recurrence.
-Report to your dermatologist and take his Consults.

Do's Suggested-
Avoid using second application till the veisculation is healed.
Cold Compress
Tab -Loratadine - would reduce the local reaction with Picato gel.
Tab-Dexamethasone- 1 tab x 2 times a day to reduce the severity of local reaction for 3- days time. This is a steroidal medicine and you will need a prescription from your family doctor.

Report to your dermatologist, immediately and take his advise before taking any medicines.

Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Do Close this query with few pleasing and excellent comments to rate this reply and to boost the morale of incoming patients like you at HCM.

Good Day!!
