Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist).
I have gone through your query and i have noted your concern.
Where all do you have rash? Is it itchy? Can you please upload an image in "Reports Section"?
For a localized allergic rash one may use an OTC topical steroid e.g cortisone cream however if the rash is extensive one may require a course of oral steroid. However, Oral steroids are prescription medications.
In addition you may take a tablet of cetrizine for symptomatic relief from itching. Cetrizine os OTC.

Hi Dr. Kakkar;

I appreciate your prompt response. I've attached photo copies of my arms, and legs showing the s rashes in question. The breakout happened the day after I TOOK A shower and laddered up with the soap bar containing Chlorophyll.

I've also attached a copies of the box the bar soap came in.

By the way, the rash is very itchy, as well. It all begins on Sunday, February 12th. I wonder how much longer do I have to endure this.

Brief Answer:
Eczematous dermatitis. Topical potent steroid cream and Oral antihistamine

Detailed Answer:

Thank you. I have reviewed the Images. You seem to have an eczematous dermatitis and it definitely seems very itchy.
I would definitely suggest a moisturizer, 2x daily. In addition to that you may use either a moderately potent topical steroid cream e.g betamethasone valerate 0.1% cream or mometasone furoate 0.1% cream Or preferably a superpotent topical steroid e.g clobetasol propionate 0.05% cream, 2x daily for a few days. These are prescription topical steroids. An over the counter (OTC) topical steroid like cortisone would be only mildly effective.
In addition you may also take an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10mg once daily for symptomatic relief from itching. Cetrizine is available OTC

I was diagnosed for facial Seborrheic dermatitis which caused some hair loss in the mustache area just above the upper lip and was advised to use mometasone furoate solution which has treated the condition, but i have a tiny bald spot where i was affected. The doctor had told me to apply a certain tincture to stimulate hair growth in the affected region after ten days of applying the mometasone furoate solution. Unfortunately, my wife lost the prescription and I dont know what kind of tincture was prescribed. I currently reside in different city and I cannot consult the doc again, and neither can call the doctor cause I do not have the doctors phone number.

Therefore, I'd really appreciate if you could please advise me as to which tincture I should apply.
