Likle hives: Hives are usually itchy red spots that comes and goes quickly. They can be caused by allergy, viral infections, and autoimmunity (reacting to yourself). Antibiotics can cause a reaction as long as two weeks after stopping it and persist up to 6 months (recurrently). Foods reactions occur usually quickly after eating the food and clears in 24 hours. Autoimmune can occur sporadically for no reason. ...Read more

*urgent*after using clotrimazole2% vaginal cream, I got irritation on skin, legs, shoulders, it itches, look like small hives. I stopped using it, still itch?

Drug reaction: Drug reactions can have different forms. Hives (urticaria) is one of them. Any medication can produce hives. First thing to do is stop the medication. Hives are due to histamine release in the skin. Antihistamines usually help reduce this reaction. If antihistamines do not help, please see your doctor. If there is any swelling of lips, tongue or throat, please go to emergency room immediately. ...Read more

Non itching hives appear on skin for no reason? What could this be?

Rash: Hives usually present as red, raised, itchy lesions that can be small or large. "Hives" are often used non-specifically to describe many different skin lesions so I would have your rash looked at directly in order to make the correct diagnosis. Hives do tend to itch and individual lesions usually appear and resolve completely within 24 hours. See your doctor for further treatment and evaluation. ...Read more

A T cell beta monoclonal gene rearrangement was found in my blood. I've also had some rashing / hives on the skin, with bad Itching. CBC & CMP normal?

TCR beta: Monoclonal TCR beta can be seen with autoimmune diseases; this means that a certain specific type of T cell -- the one causing the skin issues, most likely -- has grown to be a disproportionately large percent of your total T cells. This can usually be treated with immune suppression. You should probably have the skin biopsied and see a dermatologist at a medical school to rule out more serious dz ...Read more

Why am I itching all over? Tried blood test from doctors not scabies dry skin no rash or hives tried nonscented items like soaps tried less warm showe

Most common: Cause, often "missed" is SKIN DRYNESS!!!!
This condition is often called "Winter Itch" although it can occur in any season. Heat being turned on in cold weather dries the skin even faster that's why the condition is more prevalent during winter months!
TRY HUMIDIFIER in your bedroom and run it during day so that when you go to bed the room has a good moisture level!
Hope this helps!

Can a person be allergic to black tea? Would symptoms show as feeling like there's dust particles in mouth, eyes, throat and mildly itching skin.

Can a person be allergic to black tea? Would symptoms show as feeling like there's dust particles in mouth, eyes, throat and mildly itching skin.

Unlikely: I have yet encountered a true case of allergy to tea leaves. However if there are other flavoring added to the tea, the picture is less clear. An allergic reaction usually occurs within minutes to 2 hrs and usually associated with itching. Regardless of the mechanism, if it bothers you, you need to avoid it, tough as it may be for someone in the UK like taking away donuts from a cop. ...Read more
