Allergic reaction to monsel solution, burning, sores in labia minora. Using hydrocortizone. Medical attention needed?

I think I had an allergic reaction to monsel solution. Lots of burning and redness since Friday. Aloe helped a little externally w Advil and Benadryl orally. Tonight I switched to hydrocortisone 10. When should I return to the doc if it doesn t get better? It looks like I have sores in my labia minora , which I m guessing formed bc of the solution.

Dear hollymoskowitz ,
Monsel soultion is used to control superficial bleeding, and as it does so by contracting the body tissues, it may cause dryness and burning sensation but it is not particularly allergy. the appearance of sores or blobs may be because of the blood clots. you should continue with using Aloe and other moisturizing creams and give it few days to subside.
If you are taking hydrocortisone for more than a couple of days,,make sure to reduce the dose in tapering manner and not stop it abruptly. eg:from 10mg per day,,reduce to 5 mg perday for few days and then stop it totally.
Stay Healthy and Stay Cheerful! Thank you
