Could Grapefruit Essencial Oils Cause A Rash If Used With St Johns Wort
Nothing: They don't interactGet a more detailed answer ›
Don't know: A problem with anything not prescribed by a dr. Is that we have no idea what is in the substance you are taking. Please read the very small print on the bottle that states "this is not to be used for the treatment or diagnosis of any disease".Why is that statement there? Because the fda, the oversight of drug safety in the usa, hasn't even looked at the product you are taking. Be an informed user. ...Read more
Could oil cause allergy to my 1 mnth old son. He has red rashes all over his body. Please suggest what to use for massage. Tried coconut n olive oil?
Taking Allegra in the day and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night for rash from Johnson's oil. Can either cause rash? If so, what are other alternatives?
Cortaid (hydrocortisone): Antihistamines don't help much with rashes due to contact allergens. You'll do much better with 1% Hydrocortisone cream applied twice daily until a few days after the rash goes away. If it doesn't seem to help, see your physician for some more effective prescription options. ...Read more
Minor Rash in inner upper thighs since 4 days. Not infection. Very litle itching. I clean myself regularly. Using olive oil on area helps in itchng. Cause?
Dermatitis: If the area of itching is just in 1 area, & if you have no fever, rash, or other symptom, then most likely it's just dermatitis - irritation of the skin. Any number of things can cause it - elastic bands (rubber, especially if you're a healthcare worker), detergents / perfumes / scents / soaps, chemicals, other causes. If there is dry flaking skin, symptoms are worse; oil helps retain moisture. ...Read more

Can taking oil of oregano internally for GI issues cause a rash around butt crack? Or is the rash related to my tummy issues, ie yeast overgrowth?
Oil of oregano may cause rashes when applied topically but may rarely cause rashes when taken internally in people who are allergic to oregano.
It is far more likely this is related to intestinal yeast. You can try a cream with tea tree oil on your rash.
I advise you also take probiotics and follow a diet low in simple carbs. Also consider taking Yeast Ease: http://tinyurl. Com/lazjwoa ...Read more

Pimples?: Some people cannot tolerate too much oil on the face because it may induce pimples although less likely at your age. About 85% of the people after puberty have a mold residing normally at their skin (pityrosporum ovale) which thrives on oil and may cause seborrhea on some people. Use a less oily moisturizer on you face and if still troublesome, consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

My 17month old child was exposed to lamp oil on his skin. He has broken out in a rash. I gave him a bath. What else should I do? What if he ate some?
Toxic substance: Scented and unscented lamp oil is kerosene without the bad smell. But contrary to popular belief, the additives (benzene, naphtha) that masks the smell makes lamp oil potentially dangerous, and if absorbed by the skin and mucous membranes it could be harmful. Please call poison control for complete information: 1 -800-222-1222. ...Read more

Diaper rash: You don't say how long this is going on, or what cream you are using. But whenever you have a diaper rash that got better and then got worse or one that is lasting a long time, you need to think that it is yeast. Give your daughter's doctor a call in the morning. In the meantime, I'd stop putting stuff on it and just let things "air dry" for a while. ...Read more

I had a quater skin infecction with puss and oil that looked like road rash and a week later one formed on my arm, could this be related to hiv?
HIV: This sounds like a case of cellulitis, possibly with staphylococci with recurrence. Whether it has anything whatever to do with HIV would only be significant if you have the disease, and have become profoundly immunosuppressed as a result of long-standing untreated disease. If you are concerned about possible exposure go and get tested. The 4th generation immunoassays are excellent. ...Read more

Get second opinion: If the first dermatologist wasn't able to help you then get another opinion. When in doubt certain tests can be performed including a biopsy. Perhaps you are allergic to something like a fragrance or jewelry. Allergy testing can be done. Perhaps it is fungal considering it did not get better with a cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream. Second opinion is often helpful. Good luck. ...Read more
