I have red bumps on my both handas nd wrist and now it is spreading my other hand. They are not itchy, different  sizes. Don't think allergic reaction?

Hand rash: Diagnosing a rash without a picture is very difficult, and what you're describing can be many things. We think in broad categories - like an allergic reaction to something you might have come in contact with (sometimes hard to remember exact thing), a mild eczematous reaction (even if it doesn't itch), a fungal infection, bug bites. Let your doc know if it's getting worse! ...Read more

After eating cashews, my tongue became very itchy, i had little red spots on my tongue an i felt a burning feeling. Could this be an allergic reaction?

Cashew: The cashew family is called anacardiaceae. Poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac are all members of this family. Cells within the two layers of the cashew nut's hull secrete an allergenic resin. Cashew nut shell oil has 12 allergens and cross react with poison ivy, and mango skin and ginko biloba. So the answer is yes. ...Read more
