Blood test shows I'm allergic to cow's milk. Symptoms - hives, diarrhea. I'm 35. How can I improve? Can I still have cream, cheese, cake my favorite?

Unfortunately no: Not for now at least, if the history is truly suggestive of the symptoms and there is temporal relationship between consuming milk or dairy and the appearance of symptoms. You need to avoid all triggers, kindly an allergist for evaluation and follow up, keep an antihistaminic and probably epinephrine pen handy. Your allergist might run some blood tests, you may eventually outgrow this condition, ...Read more

Son has a peanut allergy. With no exposure to peanuts he has broken out n hives with diarrhea 4 3 days. Should we have him allergy tstd 4 everything?

Perhaps: Acute hives may be due to drug or food allergy or to viral infection. Hives & diarrhea may indicate an infection. 40% of peanut-allergic children are also tree nut allergic. Did he eat a tree nut? Could he have eaten a food contaminated with peanut - say a food prepared in a plant where peanut is also processed? Write down everything he ate in the 24 hours before hives & discuss with his allergist. ...Read more

My husband has had vomiting and diarrhea, for 2 days, and has been coughing a lot and complaining his check feels tight, also has hives, what is this?

Mgt/workup: He may have a viral illness and the hives in association. Other possible causes include a reaction to food. I would recommend that he be seen to determine if he needs allergy testing. An anti histamine may be used once to see if he improves. If he has a fever, aches, sore throat a viral illness such as the flu should be considered. ...Read more

I've broken out in what I think are hives on my legs. I had diarrhea earlier and I just dry heaved. So I want to know if I can take three Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

I've broken out in what I think are hives on my legs. I had diarrhea earlier and I just dry heaved. So I want to know if I can take three Benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Yes: Read the label and know the potential adverse effects of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) before using. Recommend starting with 50mg dose and can repeat 3-4hrs later if needed. Hives in association with new diarrhea are almost certainly a result of the immune response to infection and should clear up shortly. If they return after Benadryl (diphenhydramine), consider longer acting, newer-generation antihistamine such as cetirizine. ...Read more
