Itching bumps on thigh after using cellulite lotion

I recently used a cellulite lotion on my back & front thighs & developed big bumps on my thighs. It is quarter size and oval in shape. It itches. I stopped the product thereafter after using it for 8 -9 days. The itchiness and bumps disappeared. Then it disappeared but reappeared again 2 weeks later. I had switched to a different lotion from the same company ( Firming Lotion).since the itchy bumps appeared, I stopped using this but still experiencing symptoms

hi..Thanks for your query.
I feel you are developing a contact Urticaria/allergy to the product or any of the ingredients of the product yo are using.The exact things you are sensitive to may be found out by a PATCH Testing and I would advise you to go ahead with the same so that you know what exactly to avoid in the future.
As for now, u can take oral anti histaminic tablets to reduce the hyperactivity of the allergy cells in your body.
But in any case,it is not wise to continue the lotions which you have mentioned without confirming the PATCH TEST results.
take care!
