Yes: moderate to severe oral allergy syndrome can result in some oral swelling. severe cases can even cause anaphylaxis. it is always important to understand the combination of environmental and food sensitivities contributing to the symptoms and to find out if carrying epinephrine is advisable.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Ive heard that adding vitamins a and d to diet during pregnancy may help control skin itchiness and rashes. Is this true? How much should I take?

Be careful: The body does need vitamin a and d in pregnancy. However, vitamin a in high doses can cause cleft lip and palate in the baby. Your prenatal vitamin pill should have enough vitamin a. Many people are low in vitamin d. Your doctor can check your vit d level to see if you should take extra. The amount needed depends on the vitamin d level in your blood.

Try over-the-counter: Hydrocortisone cream, but if that doesn't work either, give in and see a doc for diagnosis of what kind of rash: do you need a stronger steroid rash or an anti-fungal? A doc'll have to check out the rash to see.
