My cuticles and fingers are itchy after getting artificial nails about four hours ago. What should I do?

I think I'm having a reaction to something.

You could take some Benadryl and see if it settles down. Otherwise, you may have to go back and ask for them to be taken off.

Try putting some witch hazel around your fingers, and taking some benedril (or other over the counter general allergy medication). If it's a minor reaction, that can fix it - if it's not (your fingers get red or the itching persists), you have to go back and get them removed.

you probably are. Benadryl or hydrocortisone might help. If it gets worst then seek medical attention.
