Received bikini laser. Got red and itchy rash. Applied numbing cream. Yeast infection?

Hello there. I just received bikini laser today and almost 5 hours afterwards, I am experiencing a very red, inflamed, itchy, blotchy like rash all over the area she did. This is my 3rd time having this done. The first time, I had no issues. The last time I applied the BLT numbing cream and this happened and now again. The last time that this occurred it was not inflamed or itchy, just blotchy red, like a yeast infection? I am an ICU nurse so I thought I should apply fungal cream and I took antihistamines for 4 days and it went away. I am worried it is inflamed and itchy this time and appears a deeper red. Thoughts? I will research a bit more on the level and intensity of the machine, when I call the spa back with questions. But they are young and not too knowledgable, I fear! Thank you. Lori

Hello Lori,
Seems you have an allergic reaction to the numbing cream, quite a few patients get that. This is not serious and should go away with time. For the present time, try to apply some emollients like calamine lotion to the area and then continue taking antihistamines till the swelling and itching goes away. Do not scratch the area and if the rash becomes generalized consult a doctor immediately.
