Contact dermatitis to tattoo ink
Got a tattoo two weeks a ago and in the second week realized that I have an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink. Took antibiotics along with a topical cream. It subsided in a week but after the medicine dose was over it flared up again showing similar symptoms. So consulted another doctor and he gave me medicines and also told me that Incase it persists I will have to opt for a laser. Just wanted to know if this kind of dermatitis is curable because I really don't want to get a laser done. Also how much time will it take for the tattoo to heal in this case

This is called tattoo granuloma. You are allergic to the colour of the tattoo. Please visit my clinic for proper examination and treatment
