Suggest Treatment For Itchy Rashes On The Body After Spraying Insectiside

My sister is 84 years old. Her husband sprayed Hartz ultra guard flea spray in their home as directed. This was May 15th. She has had a severe rash with unbearable itching ever since. Her Dr. and a Dermatologist seem to have no answers except anti anxiety drugs and Benedryl and cool showers that are not helping. Any suggestions?

Hi,

As per your query you have symptoms of itchy rashes on the body after spraying insecticide which is very common as it can leads to contact dermatitis and allergic reaction.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you keep this area clean and dry and apply a cream containing azelaic acid. Apply cold compresses on the affected area. You should avoid touching or pricking rashes. If the condition doesn't get better then consult a dermatologist for proper examination. The doctor will examine physically along with blood test and sample for a lab test. The doctor may prescribe immunosuppressants, antibiotics like clindamycin along with anti-inflammatory ointment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
