Try sudocreme it should stop the burning and calm the inflammation

You may have good luck with taking some Benadryl or using Benadryl gel! When I used to get hives that was one of the only things that helped.

Steroids reduce inflammation

Itchiness is a direct effect of your immune system activating and your face being inflamed, so they have you that to stop the inflammatory process to reduce itching, swelling, redness and heat around the area

@freespirit Ohhh thanks!!

No problems! They should have told you what it was for when you were there though!!

He didn’t give me much information honestly :(. And even when asking him if I can use anything in the mean time it clears up I got nothing ...
it’s getting itchy again and I went to target to purchase an aveeno 1% hrdrocortisone anti itch cream. Do you think this will do antebing ?? I just want to put something directly on it honestly

Also! Does anyone know of this shot will affect my birth control pill???

The shot won't affect it no. And yes you can use the Averno as long as it wouldn't irritate your skin more - do a patch test. And don't use it for too long as it's not good to use steroids for an extended period of time on your face
