Hydroxyzine Hcl 25 Mg For Post Sunburn Itch

Nanner Says:

I have a prickly, burning, deep itching on my upper arms that started about 1 month after a deep sunburn. If I touch it, the itching becomes relentless and VERY uncomfortable. I have used cortizone cream, fungal cream, Vicks (as per suggestion on Internet), aloe; but the itching continues. There are also skin-colored bumps that have appeared. A pharmacist mentioned it could be a yeast infection. I have a prescription from 10/12 for hydroxyzine when I had shingles. Could I use it for this?

Hi, Nanner! Sorry about the problem that you're having.

Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that is also used for its sedative like effects.

Learn more Hydroxyzine details here.

Thus, if it is a yeast infection, this medication isn't going to help.

You need to see your doctor so they can look at and give you a proper diagnosis, because if it is a yeast infection, you're going to need an antifungal medication to eradicate it.

Candida can cause a lot of health problems if it isn't properly treated and is left to go systemic.

Have you consulted your doctor, yet?

I am a registered nurse and have also had this problem myself. you can use an over the counter dandruff shampoo with silithium sullfate in it. put it all over the areas that you are having trouble with and leave dry then leave on for 15-20 min and wash off do this three times a day until clear. the sulfate in the shampoo kills the yeast on the skin. the white spots will fade and eventually clear up all together as you are in the sun and they are able to tan but the yeast has to be gone first or the patches/spots will not tan. hope this helps you :)
