You : You have a wide variety of symptoms and i'm not sure that they are all related. Dry eys are common and simple otc artificial tears may do the trick. I encourage you to see your primary care doctor as soon as possible to be evaluated for your other symptoms.

While : While some of the eye symptoms and other symptoms such as saliva issues may be related, it sounds like you need a primary care doctor to take a look at your whole body. Some of this sounds like things that can happen during or after a common cold, but you need an exam by someone who can look at your body as a whole.

You : You have many symptoms that are not related. First, you should quit smoking! this will eliminate potential problems. Second, you need to be evaluated by your primary care physician. Third, for your dry eyes, start with using over the counter artificial tear drops.

Dry eye: Try artificial tears, warm compresses, ointment at night, and fish oil supplements. If no improvement, see an eye doctor. You should also be tested for sjogren's syndrome.

Insect bites: It could be any insect bite. See the doctor if it does not clear up in few days. If it is itchy you can try Hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) by mouth.

I am 38 f obese with fatty liver. I have lost 42 lbs since march . My hair is falling out. Could this be a sign of cirrhosis?

Probably not: Cirrhosis is not usually associated with hair loss.Any time there is a rapid reduction in weight or any kind of illness then we can see hair loss increase for several months. This type of hair loss comes back so not to worry. Good luck on your weight loss.
