Paracetamol allergy; whenever i take my first dose of paracetamol, itchy rashes will occur on my left arm. Having this almost 2yrs and im 30?

Drug allergy: Some people can react to paracetamol, but having the rash only on your left arm is sugestive of a fixed drug eruption and is not necessarily secondary to a systemic allergy.

Past three days been extremely itchy all over body, primarily arms and legs. No rashes, etc. No new changes at all. No allergies. What can be cause?

Suggest taking an otc antihistamine daily, take only lukewarm showers. Will likely go away in 2-3 weeks. If not, the usual: c the doc. ...Read more

I think I was bitten by a spider. A few days later, an itchy red rash appeared on my chest. Allergy meds help but it comes right back. Moved to my arm?

I think I was bitten by a spider. A few days later, an itchy red rash appeared on my chest. Allergy meds help but it comes right back. Moved to my arm?

Not likely spider: Most insect bites cause local inflammatory reactions like itching and welts that are mild and resolve within a few hours without complications. Most spiders are harmless, only a few cause more severe reactions (i.e. Brown recluse) which present as redness and blistering, sometimes leading to a blue discoloration, and possible necrotic lesion. Symptoms days later not consistent with bite reaction. ...Read more
