Rash after using scar cream. (photos)

I had breast implants and lift 9 months ago. Recently after using a scar cream I developed a rash around nipple. My plastic surgeon told me to use hydrocortisone 1%. How long before rash goes away. It's not Itchy or I feel no pain. Just has me worried. Thanks

Rash after using scar cream.

Unfortunately some will be sensitive to scar creams, and if a rash develops from any medication the rule is to stop the medication, wash the area with Ivory soap and water, and give your doctor a call for instructions and help.

Keep the area clean and stop using the scar cream.  Follow up with your plastic surgeon to determine the next course of action.
