    Solarcaine or Aloe Reactions???

    Anyone else deal with solarcaine or aloe reactions?

    My husband does with solarcaine, ends up blistering when he wasn't blistered to begin with..... and now my SON did!

    After sitting here going over a few things...we aren't sure what exactly is going on due to an on going rash on his face we think might be an aloe reaction possibly?????????

    he was a bit too red this weekend.....after being slathered with SPF 50 all weekend. IMMEDIATELY after having solarcaine applied, he started SCREAMING and Blistered HORRIBLY! I mean we get NASTY looks!!!!! he also started the "Shivers" for a few minutes. Reading the reactions...I'm wondering now if it was part of the allergy and not just the solarcaine being a bit cooling.

    Anything else I can do to help him heal up faster????

    his shoulders are just raw, his face is currently aweful!! Already in a semi-peel with sores!!! it was that bad!!!

    I googled it. lol

    I have contact dermatitis and one thing that helps me is LOTS of hypoallergenic moisturizers designed for the face. Soap is very drying, esp to already damaged skin. You can also try topical benadryl...although maybe the one without aloe, if its itching. Poor guy. A lot of ppl are allergic to aloe.

    Unfortunately, there is no fast-fix sunburn treatment. Once sunburn occurs, you can't do much to limit damage to your skin. However, the following tips may reduce your pain and discomfort in the hours and days following sunburn:
    • Take anti-inflammatory medication, such as aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), on a regular basis according to the label instructions until redness and soreness subsides.
    • Apply cold compresses — such as a towel dampened with cool tap water — to the affected skin. Or take a cool bath.
    • Apply a moisturizing cream, aloe or 1 percent hydrocortisone cream to affected skin. A low-dose (0.5 percent to 1 percent) hydrocortisone cream may decrease pain and swelling, and speed up healing.
    Some dermatologists warn against using products that claim to relieve sunburn pain but may actually irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction. These include topical "-caine" products, such as benzocaine.

    thanks. if you watched him today, you'd NEVER Guess he has a skin burn.

    Wrestling around, not a care in the world! LOL

    But GOD FORBID you put GOOP on him! We've been applying neosporine on it due to the open wounds. And he's had that on before without an issue. But UGH, the blood curdling SCREAMING that you hear. You can grab the area in play and he's FINE. But put goop on ANY Part of him...or he SEES goop.....and it is like you are ripping the skin off .......

    Don't blame him. After applying the solarcaine and having things get worse.....he's probably scared to death!!


    Chris put aloe and baby oil in his bath, and he developed a small case of pinpoint hives!!!! So it has to be linked more to the aloe over the lidocaine. Don't you think???

    My friend will do this with aloe and baby oil. Then she got a sun burn and tried lotion and broke out in hives. The main ingredient was mineral oil.
    I wonder if skin sensitivity is different from allergic reactions... like anything with oil or that sat for a long time on the skin would cause a reaction?
    You'd have to do a skin patch test to really tell.
    I had soap allergies as a child and sodium tallowate will still cause my skin to itch.
    The cherry bomb skin cleaner the guys use at work will also cause me to itch like mad if I don't wash it off within twenty seconds. I've never had the courage to leave it on longer!!!
    You could try plain baby oil and see or rub on a small dot of straight aloe, but that might prove to be traumatic....
