Allergies board


It really could be the Neosporin, as it sometimes takes up to a week for the body to start reacting to a new drug (avg 5 days for me). Or, when I'm really stressed, I sometimes have really bad reactions to allergens that'd normally bother me just a little.

I understand your not wanting to put anything else on your face, (and you could be right about that) but are you at least taking allergy pills? When I start swelling like that, I run do not walk to the Benadryl stash. As far as topical medicine, have you ever tried hydrocortisone cream? It's not an ointment, it's not oil-based.

Hope you feel better fast.
