Is it okay to have black tea & date-palm during spring detoxification?

Is it okay to have black tea & date-palm during spring detoxification?

Go right ahead: I amazed from the questions posted here how many people think they need to be detoxified. If your liver, kidneys and gut are all healthy, your body does a great job cleaning itself. I've looked at a lot of guts over they years and if you've not eaten for a few hours everything except for the distal colon is empty. There ain't no retained waste to flush out. Sorry. ...Read more

My both palms are itchy for the last few days. I never had allergies nor i used or ate any thing other than usual. Please help!?

Medication?: An allergic reaction to a medication will often be the cause of itching of the palms and/or soles. If there are no new medications, then i would try to control the symptom by using a non-sedating anti-histamine such as claritin, (loratadine) Allegra or zyrtec. If the symptom continues it might be time to see an allergist. ...Read more

Dishidrotic eczema?: Good morning,
your rash on hand could be due to contact dermatitis, an allergic reaction to chemicals that you came into contact with, or it could be what is called dyshidrotic eczema, a blistering disease of palms and soles. It is more common in occupational settings, with atopic dermatitis, and on contact with irritants such as chemicals and allergens. Less exposure, barrier creams are helpful. ...Read more

I had a lot of alcohol and in the morning I found the palm of my hands and sole of my feet to be swollen and itching. Could this be alcohol allergy?

Unlikely: Ethanol is a sugar. Humans do not demonstrate allergies to sugers, but rather, to proteins. Alcohol is a vasodilator and this could be what is causing your symptoms. Regardless, although it seems fun, try and reduce the binge drinking because it is taking a toll on your health. ...Read more

Autoimmune disease: Unfortunately, you have a complex situation and something that is tricky to diagnose. It sounds like you have been to several doctors already. It sounds like you need a dermatologist to see you and do a skin biopsy, immunologist work up or rheumatologist . It could be a rare infection, but more likely autoimmune at this point. ...Read more

I was wondering if i know i'm going to eat something I am slightly allergic to, should I eat allergy medicine before hand?

I was wondering if i know i'm going to eat something I am slightly allergic to, should I eat allergy medicine before hand?

Possibly: The best approach is to avoid the food especially if the reaction is severe. Taking allergy medication beforehand does not always help but may help if the reaction is very mild. People with food allergies should have an epinephrine auto injector in the event of reactions especially if it is hard to avoid the food. An allergist can evaluate your allergy and make appropriate treatment plans. ...Read more

Depends: If you know you are allergic to a food it is probably best to avoid that food.

Please see allergist for future evaluation and advice on what medications you should carry/ take in the case of an allergic reaction ...Read more

Sinus problems: With your historic would be very careful with medications. I would. Avoid decongestants and would try to use nonsedating antihistamines but really i would call your doctor and ask him for a nasal steroid, they are the easiest and the safest they are not systemically absorbed stay away from liver metabolized drugs if you have ascities.

Yesterday I was attacked by white faced hornets and although I have no allergy to them my hand has doubled in size. Can skin split from swelling?

With that degree of: swelling - you may be having a localized allergic reaction (even if you have never experienced allergic symptoms in the past). Have you had a tetanus shot in the last 10 years? Redness, warmth, pain, pus? Your reaction is significant enough - that I would recommend medical assessment. Take cre. ...Read more

Before two days allergy like mosquitoes bites has appeared on my legs and hand and it is so itcy.there is no mosquito in my home ?

Any insect: It is hard to tell the differences among the insect bites . However you could have been bitten by insects (fleas etc) outside of your home. On the other hand, you appear to have had numerous itchy bumps which would be unusual for insect bites (with an attack by a swarm of bees or fire ants) and the problem may well be from a viral infection or a drug reaction. Try antihistamine->see doc ...Read more

I am having an allergy on my right hand for more than 5 months. What should I do to get rid of it? 
Is there any cream that I can apply on it.

Avoidance: Avoidance of the contact allergen or irritant is the only long-term solution although topical hydrocortisone may reduce the inflammation. If you are right handed, then something you are handling with the right hand is causing your problem as would be excessive hand washing or usage of hand sanitizer containing no moisturizer in it. If the problem persists, see allergist or dermatologist . ...Read more

Allergy shot consistanly in left arm, now c/o left arm muscle pain and hand cramp in l hand an arm?

Time for Neurologist: These are such unusual symptoms that have followed allergy shots, so one should be cautious about blaming the injections on these new problems. Any injury to the body may cause a condition known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy/crps complex regional pain syndrome, but it is hard to imagine that allergy shots could bring on such a complication.
