Can you get a rash on your body due to constipation?

Can you get a rash on your body due to constipation?

Not "due" to it: Constipation does not cause a rash. A person can have both a rash and constipation, just as a coincidence, or due to a disorder that causes the constipation and the rash. Some medications cause constipation, and one can have a rash if allergic to the same medication. Some people with thyroid hormone imbalances get constipation and rashes. A primary care doctor can help figure things out.

Increasingly itchy rash for 6 mos ALL over body w/ concurrently increasing constipation (< or = 1 bowel movement/week now). I'm very hydrated.

Increasingly itchy rash for 6 mos ALL over body w/ concurrently increasing constipation (< or = 1 bowel movement/week now). I'm very hydrated.

Not enough info: If you have had a rash for over 6 months, you should consult a dermatologist to find out the cause. As for the constipation, it may be caused by taking too much antihistamine to control the itching especially if they are of the sedating type (benadryl, atarax (hydroxyzine) etc). In the future, provide more details on your health status (other illnesses, medications taken etc) in order to get a better answer

What to do if rashes occur after constipation please tell an ointment?

What to do if rashes occur after constipation please tell an ointment?

Need examination.: Constipation will not cause any sort of rash, so something else is causing it. We can't recommend a treatment without knowing the cause, so let a dermatologist give you a precise diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

I have been dealing with frequent constipation over the past two weeks accompanied by lots of itching but I don't have any rashes. What could it be?

Likely unrelated: Of course, this time of year the biggest problem with itchy skin is dryness due to being inside with heated air. Generous moisturization is needed. Perhaps the constipation IS related: being cooped up inside is contributing to inactivity. Keep working on constipation with lots of water/hydration, increased fiber in diet, & daily exercise, especially walking. Good wishes:)

I am taking laxido to treat constipation and I have developed a rash. Should I carry on taking the medication or see medical advice?

I am taking laxido to treat constipation and I have developed a rash. Should I carry on taking the medication or see medical advice?

See your doctor.: If your rash seems to be temporally related to beginning the laxative, then you should stop the laxative and see your doctor immediately. If it is affecting your breathing, call EMS right away. If it is determined that the laxido is the cause, there are other laxatives you can use, which your doctor will suggest. Good luck.

Gave constipated 15 month old 1\4 pedia lax tablet....now her stool is yellow seedy and her bum is red and raw. Is this Normal? Remedies for rash?

Gave constipated 15 month old 1\4 pedia lax tablet....now her stool is yellow seedy and her bum is red and raw. Is this Normal? Remedies for rash?

Common problem: Sounds like you fixed the constipation problem. Good job. Now you have the residual rash. I'd use, at baseline, a very good barrier cream such as 40% zinc oxide. Give her a little bath in tepid water twice daily with 3 tablespoons of baking soda. This will neutralize any fungal skin irritation. About 2-3 times daily use clotrimazole cream, OTC from drugstore. Be diligent and you can fix it!

Auto-innune disease.: This sounds like some type of autoimune disease and or infection. This can be a mixed problem. All types of bowel disease are or can be associated with nonspecific conjunctivitis.You need to be seen by your pcp who can direct you to the other specialists.

If severe constipation is left untreated what are the likely long term causes of it on your body? Is constipation something to get worried about?

If severe constipation is left untreated what are the likely long term causes of it on your body? Is constipation something to get worried about?

YES: It is an extremely common question and strongly indicates that what I call dietary mayhem. It is not that it causes problems; it is part of the overall bad health that exists as a result of ignoring the well known rules of a proper diet.

If a gadolinium contrast is excreted in bile and I have constipation issues does that mean that my body didn't get rid of it?

If a gadolinium contrast is excreted in bile and I have constipation issues does that mean that my body didn't get rid of it?

Gadolinium: Read this: http://www. Radiologyinfo. Org/mobile/en/safety/index. Cfm? Pg=sfty_contrast#top. Contrast materials commonly cause temporary constipation. Your body is getting rid of it - in the stool. Drink plenty of fluids and increase your fiber intake and that should clear the constipation symptoms.

I am 5weeks and 3 days pregnant, and go back abd forth between constipation and diarrhea. Is this my body gettin ready to miscarry?

Not likely but: You are very early. Make sure you are on Folic Acid but bowel irregularity is not a sign of impending miscarriage, especially if you've ever been diagnosed with irritible bowel syndrome. Gd luck?
