Wouldn't label so: I wouldn't label this an allergy but it may be an intolerance. True cow milk allergy is uncommon compared to intolerance. You might try a soy or almond milk as the protein base is quite different as is the sugar used.

A 30-year-old member asked:

Lately i've had skin rashes and itchiness. Should I use calamine lotion or aloe?

Either: Either may help with symptoms. Hydrocortisone cream which is available over-the-counter may both relieve the symptoms and help get rid of the rash. Antihistamines like claritin, zyrtec and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will also help for both.

No: Diarrhea is common following removal of your gallbladder. However, it is not normal to have blood in your stool following removal of your gallbladder. If this occurs, you need to contact your doctor immediately.

How is it that I can get the h1n1 swine flu vaccine if I have an egg allergy?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Some ok with vaccine: Many people have only mild allergic reactions to eggs, and some people say the had past egg allergies but now eat eggs without problems. For the mildly allergic, they can get blood-tested and skin-tested. If egg allergy shows up on the tests, they can still talk to the allergist about trying a flu shot under supervision at the clinic. People with severe egg allergy should not get the vaccine.

Can you tell me the difference between the symptoms of pink eye and those of eye allergies?

Dr. Robert Chang
Specializes in Ophthalmology
Itchy: Can't always tell the difference based on symptoms, but sometimes pink eye starts in one eye first and then spreads to the other eye. Both are usually red and watery, but infections can cause more of a purulent discharge. Allergies usually have more of a itching component and can have other seasonal allergy symptoms outside of the eye.

Can ibuprofin cause stomach pains and bloody stool?

YES -- get HELP!: Ibuprofen, and other nsaid's, particularly in a dose-dependent fashion (based on milligrams consumed & duration of use) can cause ulcers in any part of the GI tract. Due to the platelet inhibition effect of ibuprofen, ulcers caused by it may indeed bleed massively. If that is the scenario you're describing--immmediately stop taking Ibuprofen and get to the er!
