This appears to be an allergy to the bandage as the outline of the irritation matches that of the bandage. It's not an allergy to the laser or anything like that. I'd use a simple antibiotic ointment (provided you're not allergic to that either) and cover with some gauze. Please see your physician for a full evaluation. Good luck, Dr. M
Don't Wait-Call Your Doctor
You need to call your Doctor to have this addressed. This looks like an allergic reaction and needs medical attention. Best, Dr. Emer
Allergic reaction to bandage
This needs attention soon. I do think this is an allergy. Please see your provider today to get treated. The tattoo wound also needs addressing.
