Most often: Anal itching in an adult is from either excess caffeine/beer or excess moisture or possibly yeast infection. I do not use any ointments for anal itching. Cut out the caffeine and beer and use plain cornstarch powder liberally and frequently to your bottom. If itching is waking from sleep, caffeine is the most likely culprit. Also consider pin worms but rare in adult. ...Read more
5 year old with itchy toes that lasted 6 days so far since high fever broke. Now says feet and genitals itch and cries. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and cream doesn't work?
Peeling (top skin layer), VERY itchy skin on palms & fingers of both hands. Have used OTC creams with salicylic acid, benedryl, etc...did not work.
Contact /irritant: Both contact allergy (from a contact allergen) and an irritant (solvent, excessive hand washing) can cause itchy hand dermatitis. The answer is avoidance of the offending agent (may need to see allergist or dermatologist to help you identify the agent). Salicylic acid will cause peeling on anyone and Benadryl will do nothing for the rash. No improvement until after avoidance. ...Read more

This: This is a bit tricky to answer without a picture and more clinical information. I doubt it was from the blood draw. This time of year it could be many things including a medication reaction, eczema, a viral exanthem, psoriasis, dry skin from low humidity, and many others. Perhaps a visit to a dermatologist would be helpful for diagnosis and treatment options. I hope that helps a little! ...Read more

Have allergy. I took Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25 mg. After another hour eye was still itchy and nose was really funny and stuffy I took 2 after that is that bad.?
No: You should always adhere to the product dosing instructions. Having said that, the maximum safe dose in 24 hours is 300mg, or no more than 12 capsules or tablets per day. As for your dose taken, I presume you too the second two tablets an hour or so after the first one. Your total is 75mg which be okay. On another note, if your eyes itch, try zaditor™ eye drops, which are over the counter. ...Read more

See your doctor tomorrow if you can if rash is still bothering you. Cool shower should help with the itch. It is obvious you have a bad allergic reaction. Go to ER if you develop throat tightening, short of breath, wheezing, or other concerning symptoms other than rash ...Read more

I have flakey bumpy red itchy skin on eyelids for the last 3 years. Went to dr. He did not know what it was. Gave me fungal cream not helping. Help?
Eyelids sensitive: Eyelid skin is very delicate so it reacts easily to chemicals in the air or surface contact. Your eyelids could be irritated by or allergic to products used around your eyes, on your face or scalp, or things you handle. Seborrheic dermatitis can also cause scaly, red eyelids. You could try a brief course of hydrocortisone, used sparingly or be evaluated by a derm. Nail polish/epoxy have caused. ...Read more
