Red welts all over legs, itching, not subsiding, due to hair removal laser. Cure?

Hello , I bought a hair removal laser and this is the third time I ve used it. The first and second time I used it, everything went fine. Third time - After few hrs, I noticed red welts all over my legs which started to itch . Today is the 5th day since I did my legs and it looks like the welts are not going to go away anytime soon. Could you please tell me what I can do to get rid of them.
