Husband has Poison Ivy 9/5.  Got Predisone.  Allergic Reaction.  Just on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) now.  Still swollen and red and more hives are appearing?

Prednisone allergy?: I am uncertain he had a prednisone allergy. You need to discuss the reaction with your physician. This may have been related tot eh dose of the prednisone and was a side effect of the level of the dosage. Prednisone is a corticosteroid and these are the mainstay of acute therapy for poison ivy. You can discuss this your physician and see a dermatologist. You may need a different preparation ...Read more

My 7 year old son has itchy bumps on legs and arms...Nothing on tummy or back. His eyes are itchy too. I gave him Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to ease the itch.?

My 7 year old son has itchy bumps on legs and arms...Nothing on tummy or back. His eyes are itchy too. I gave him Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to ease the itch.?

Allergy itch: You did right to give him an antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) should work well for the type of itching he has. Itchy eyes suggest an allergy to something in the air, but occasionally other causes may trigger eye itching as well. If he played outdoors today, there was probably a lot of pollen around. He's about the age that kids start having seasonal allergies; it takes a few years to get going on those. ...Read more

Child has fifths disease. After rash on cheeks, went away and rash on lower body. Suddenly onset of fever. Something different or normal?

Normal: The fever, while usually with the rash in Fifth's disease, can occur at any point in the illness.

My 1 yr. Old has developed an itchy rash on his face...Cheeks, forhead, nose, behind and on the ears...Looks like red splotches.  No fever, diarrhea..?

Allergy?: If he is acting ok no fever drinking eating etc it sounds like hives. They are typically blotches they might come and go affect different parts of the body etc. Think about new foods, possibly just changed to milk, think of new soaps detergents, fabric softness something new in 24 to 48 hours before the rash. If he starts not acting well, develops a fever, or no resolution in a few days see ur dr. ...Read more

My daughter has red bumps all over her except her nose today i noticed three more on her chest, is this baby acne, eczema or heat rash?

Red bumps: Not knowing your child's age i would rule out baby acne. Eczema doesn' t usually cause bumps. She might heat rash but could also have the hives.. For heat rash cut down on room temperature and/ or clothes child is wearing. For hives you can try benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more
