Hello Siframk, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Your complaint can indeed be caused by an allergic skin reaction to the body scrub / lotion product you are using, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as:
Irritant contact dermatitis
Skin irritation due to excessive frequency of scrub / too hard when rubbing
To find out which condition you are experiencing, you should check the complaint directly to the doctor. After being examined, then can be determined what therapy should be given in accordance with your current condition.
In the meantime, you should not use scrub products and lotions before you get therapy and your skin has improved. If you want a scrub back, you can first consult with your doctor about the frequency of doing it, how to apply it well and also whether the product you are currently using can be reused or not.
You are not advised to take any medication or to use any topical medication without clear doctor's advice because it can worsen the complaint. Also not recommended to scratch the places where there are complaints because it can cause new wounds and infections of the skin.
I hope this helps.
