I had Palomar Starlux ablative & non-ablative done 16 days ago. On day 2 I had a fever & tiny fast spreading pustules. I was dx with a Staph infection and treated with Bactrim. 4 days post Bactrim I had a reaction and was instructed to discontinue use. Yesterday on day 15 I used a different sunscreen than was recommended (I needed to reapply and didn't have it with me) and I've had a rash (flat/blotchy/pink) and extreme itchiness since then. Dermatitis or infection? Should I call my derm?
