All Over Itchy After Stopping Claritin
My nose is very itchy, and is also bleeding sometimes. I have been taking claritin, once i stop taking it, it starts happening again. What should I do?
Nasal itching: Symptoms of allergies are nasal itching, congestion, sneezing and runny nose. Nose bleeds can occur from "trauma" by nose blowing. Since antihistamines work, that suggests allergies. An allergist can perform allergy testing to define what the allergy is so avoidance measures can be implemented. There are additional medications that can be tried, but it is important to determine the trigger. ...Read more
I got an adverse reaction to advil. Rash all over. Looks like urticaria. I took one 10 mg claritin. Can I take another soon after? Painful itchy hives
Yes: If the hives are itchy, you may up the dose of Claritin to 4 x daily but this may cause some drowsiness. Allegra is another option. If the problem gets worse, you will need to see your doctor. Consult an allergist to find out whether you are "sensitive" to all NSAIDs or only to Advil. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had severe upper rhespiratory problems due to allergies for the past few days but today they re better but now after taking a Claritin and a hot shower I have a blotchy red rash on my arms and legs it s not itchy but I m wondering what the cause mi
Viral? Allergic?: Blotchy appearing reddish rashes can occur when the blood flow in the tiny vessels at the skin's surface change, such as in an allergic rash, a viral rash, or in reaction to changes in skin temperature. Viral infections that cause cold symptoms and other symptoms can sometimes cause such skin patterns (fifth disease, caused by a virus, can cause reddish patterns). A doctor can evaluate if needed. ...Read more

I have itchy tingly skin when I take Claritin it stops the itch but skin still tingles. Skin is not dry and a cold fan blowing on me seems to help some. What could be wrong?
When on claritin for months, I get relief when I take it but get very itchy when I skip. when I don't take it for months, I am less itchy overall. Why
Antihistamine: Claritin is an antihistamine which blunts the action of histamine. Histamine is released in all parts of your body but especially under the skin. When histamine is released under your skin it can cause hives or just itching. Thus an antihistamine will block those symptoms. Your itchy skin could be due to allergies. ...Read more
I took Claritin 24 hours, 12 hours ago but my allergies are out of control again. Can I take half a Benadryl to help with my itchiness?
Yes: Adding Benadryl is fine. If your allergies are out of control you might want to consider adding medicated nasal sprays to your treatment regimen. Consider seeing an Allergist so that you can get better relief. Skin testing to determine sensitivities to indoor and outdoor allergens is useful. If you fail both medications and avoidance measures you might want to consider allergy shots. ...Read more
