I got risings, itch, and redness from a cosmetic cream. Risings went off. Redness and itch are still here. It is the fourth day. And a little swelling like seems like I had botox. Is it normal to still have those? I only apply a cream for the itch. Should I take an antihistamine for the swelling and itch? Itch is manageble.

I have seen your query. With your descriptions, it seems you have developed irritant contact dermatitis to cosmetic cream which you have used.
