Unrelated: Although these conditions may be from allergies, they are not related. The finger and toe problem may be from an allergic contact reaction to contact agents but the nose more likely from airborne allergens.

I think I had an allergic reaction to a soap on my vagina i've had it for a few days now. Itchy, swollen. Could it be something else when will it stop?

5-7d, not aggravated: If you stop using the product that aggravated you, it should get better. It is best to see an allergist to see if it is the soap that caused the reaction.

Stop using soap on the vaginal area. Use wet washcloth. ...Read more

Contact allergy:eyes: A reaction to eyelash glue can be similar to poison ivy: it starts 1-4 days after exposure begins, involves a blistering rash, itches severely. It lasts +/- three weeks. This requires oral steroids frequently. Strong steroid creams are not used around the eyes because of risk of glaucoma/cataracts. Fexfenadine is not likely to control it.
