How to Treat an Allergy Rash on the Face

Save

Allergy rashes come on suddenly, and these rashes are usually accompanied by swelling. When they occur on the face, they can be especially irritating and embarrassing. Here are some tips to treat an allergy rash on the face.

Things You'll Need

  • Cool Compresses
  • Topical Steroid Cream
  • Oral Antihistamines

Wash your face thoroughly with a mild soap, and rinse thoroughly. This will remove any trace of an allergen you may have come in contact with.

Hold cool compresses to the face to ease discomfort and bring down swelling. You can dip these in cider vinegar for extra relief.

Apply a topical steroid cream gently to the face. Don’t use any heavy lotions or ointments that might block the pores.

Take an oral antihistamine to help counter the allergic reaction by fighting it from within.

Stay calm. Rapid breathing can lead to excessive blood rushing to the face and make the condition worse.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try to determine what caused the reaction, and steer clear in the future.
  • Allergic reactions can worsen rapidly and possibly cause breathing problems; if you have difficulty breathing seek medical attention.
