Dr faust 1 tbsp manuka honey 16+ by mouth can be cause rashes in 6 year old? Thanks for all the advice & support.
Pollen allergy?: Manuka honey is tested and must have manuka pollen: the bees feed on one particular type of flower in new zealand and australia. If someone gets a rash whenever they eat this honey it would make me think of a pollen allergy or a an allergy to one of the unique phytochemicals found naturally in that honey.

Dr, I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?
Probably not: But you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more

Red rashes on upper arms and buttocks? He hasn't been sick lately. He says that it doesn't itch& recently told dr said it could be eczema, what can I use
Doctor can examine: Rashes can be hard to describe or diagnose without seeing them. A primary care or a dermatology doctor can look at it in order to tell what it is. If a dry skin or eczema rash, hydrocortisone cream helps. Some rashes are an allergy to something. Hydrocortisone also helps allergic rashes. Bacterial or fungal rashes benefit from antimicrobials. If it doesn't go away, a dermatologist can take a look. ...Read more

If your baby's skin is dry or prone to eczema, try a mild lotion (cetaphil, eucerin, and aveeno (oatmeal) are my favorites). Sometimes more severe rash can be do to a food allergy (even if your are breastfeeding) or an infection, so check with your doctor. ...Read more
