Allergic reaction?: A 39 year old male with an itchy, burning red rash in addition to burning sensation in nostrils and eyes, also worse with exercise.

Contact with an irritant could also cause this reaction - chemical irritant or other exposure? See physician to be sure ...Read more

Feet are blistering athete feet like, burning and itchin blister are pop-up under the skin burning swellin, uncontrolable itching.

Feet are blistering athete feet like, burning and itchin blister are pop-up under the skin burning swellin, uncontrolable itching.

Well, : Well, you so seem to be describing athlete's foot, a topical fungal infection, although there are other skin disorders that could also cause itching and blistering, like contact dermatitis (an allergic reaction from something like a dye in a new sock, etc.). Usually fungal infections have a characteristic fungal odor, whereas contact dermatitis doesn't. If you're absolutely miserable, go see a dermatologist or podiatrist right away. But if you'd like to try something yourself first, you can try applying an over-the-counter anti-fungal cream like lamisil, lotrimin or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2-3 times a day and see if it improves. If it doesn't get noticeably better in a day or two, you need to see a doctor. Regardless of what it might be, and as hard as this advice might be to follow, it's very important to not scratch! scratching will only inflame the area and in the case of fungal infections, will only cause it to spread (and put fungal spores under your fingernails). If you do see an improvement in a day or two, it most certainly is a fungal infection. Fungal spores live for 30 days, so just because it clears up in a couple of days doesn't mean you should stop using the fungicidal cream. You should keep using the cream for at least 30 days to prevent recurrence. Hope this helps. Don't scratch, and good luck! ...Read more

Itchy flaky scalp and excessive hair loss after eating foods except ( whole wheat ) and the food allergies test (prick & rast ) was negative . Why ?

Itchy flaky scalp and excessive hair loss after eating foods except ( whole wheat )  and the food allergies test (prick & rast ) was negative . Why ?

Alopecia and allergy: It is unlikely that food allergy has anything to do with hair loss. Plus both prick and blood test for food are negative so you are unlikely to have ige mediated food allergy. Many things may cause hair loss including androgenic (male pattern) baldness, fungal infection, autoimmune disease like lupus, thyroid/pituitary dysfunction, iron-deficiency anemia... You should talk to your doctor again. ...Read more

8 year old is in tears over burning legs. ( they are not hot to touch) seasonal allergies are bad.  Burning swollen itchy eyes.  Why are legs burning?

Uncertain: Seasonal allergy is not related to burning legs which may be a neurologic issue. If your child has eczema, it may be from the excessive dry skin which may be relieved by application of a moisturizer 2x daily preferably with at least one within 3 minutes after bathing. You may also try a 4% lidocaine lotion to see if this helps. If problem persists, see a doctor. ...Read more
