Tuchaka Posted February 25, 2015 Share Posted February 25, 2015 my doctor prescribed Lidex cream....so i am thinking hmm lets see what google brings up :) holly nerd balls look what came up........when i searched for 'tattoo lidex cream'....tattoo removal cream comes up in search.....yikes https://username15465.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/methods-for-removing-tattoos-tattoo-removal-cream-tattoo-removal-creams-often-tout-their-ability-to-remove-tattoos/ ^ not even sure what this page is but it metions lidex cream in the context of tattoo removal so not quite sure what to think http://www.rxlist.com/lidex-drug.htm ^ what lidex cream is.... So my doctor thinks i either had an allergic reaction to gold dial soap ( not sure what to think there ) or.... generic version of neosporin + pain relief ....most likely the pain relief..... so since i am 1 week past my first appointment working on a sleeve i am just going to use unscented soap, and aveeno mositurizer or lubriderm..... until the allergic reaction goes away ( also taking a OTC anti histamine ) anyway since this is my first tattoo i am NOT going to use the lidex cream. I emailed my tattoo artist and am waiting for his opinion but ya a bit scary doc prescribed an ingredient used in tattoo removal creams ( didn't think those worked anyway...weird ) I do have really sensitive skin , i tend to use unscented fragrance free soaps etc. anytime i shave i have to go great lengths to not get razor bumps / burn/ ingrown hairs etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
