Laser hair removal reaction. Any suggestions?

I had laser hair removal treatment two days ago on my legs. I had taken a medication for a cold the day before and this seems to have produced a reaction. My legs have blotchy red and white bumps that are extremely itchy. What should I do. Many thanks.

This can be normal

In our practice, we have seen these reactions, it does depend on the laser, skin type, and the settings that were used, as to why there would be a reaction.  But using aloe on your legs will help with healing and the itching.
