Allergic Skin Reaction

The skin's function is to block noxious chemicals in the environment from entry into the body.  It does a very good job most of the time, however, occasionally, a chemical causes an allergy: an itching, red rash.  The chemical may be something that came in contact with the skin, like poison ivy, or the substance may have been ingested in the form of a drug or a food additive, or possibly it was inhaled.   When the skin reacts in this way, gentle treatment is in order, since the skin is injured.  Cleansing with a soap substitute such as Cetaphil is recommended to avoid further drying with a soap.  Cortisone creams and moisturizers may be prescribed by your dermatologist to stop the itching and speed healing.
