Help me, I've Broken Out

Two part question: I have a breakout, what is the best treatment? Why doesn't GNC sell me what I want?

I went into GNC for Hydroxycut Tuesday. The hottie at the counter talked me (and boy do I fall for a hottie sometimes) into something else called Cellucor D4. Well, I took one that afternoon, and one the next morning. By noon, I started noticing a small breakout, so I didn't take another. By this morning, my face, chest, and back were covered in small red bumps, which look sort of like acne, but then don't. So I'm not sure if its zits, hives, or what.
Is there anything that can take care of this, other than time to let the breakout go back down? I am prone to minor acne breakouts sometimes, but this is beyond anything.
And as a side note, why does GNC insist on not giving me what I walk into their store for? When I went to return the offending supplement, explaining that I wanted hydroxycut originally, the woman tries to sell me something completely different. I understand they might have "push items" but this is beyond anything.
