Allergic rash: Given the limited information (where is the rash, what triggers it, is it itchy, does it go away within a short period of time, etc.), i would suggest that an allergy evaluation might be helpful if there is a suspicion that foods or environmental triggers are responsible. There may be other causes for the rash, in which case seeing your internist and having a physical with lab tests may be needed. ...Read more

Have you heard of Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails causing an allergic skin reaction (could it be from the biotin or hyaluronic acid)?
Could be anything: One could be allergic to anything. This product contains more than just biotin and hyaluronic acid. You could also be sensitive to inert/filler ingredients.

Probably not: Allergic reaction r usually mediated by an antibody called ige in the body. Ige has to bind usually large molecules, such as proteins to cause an allergic reaction.

In the rare cases of aquatic urticaria, contact of skin to water can trigger hives, but not a true allergic process. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What type of allergic reaction is it when allergy skin testing results in extreme itchiness, small wheals all the same size including saline drop.
Dermatographism: The saline negative control on skin testing should be "negative" with no itch or redness. When this is "positive" that is suggestive of dermatographism which is a fairly common form of physical urticaria (hives) just from stroking of the skin. To better define allergies, a serum ige (blood test) can be used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
