Allergy to chemical spray

Patient: What is good for chapped burned skin from a chemical air freshener

 

 

Symptoms: Skin is dry, itchy and peeling

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.To control the burning and discomfort after an allergy, you can use calamine lotion. It will reduce the symptoms and avoid skin peeling. However, get it examined by a dermatologist later to avoid hypertrophic scar or keloid formation.Hope this helped.Regards
