Terrible hives&hot flashes.Rx'd 10mg zyrtec daily&often take benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bedtime.Safe 2gether?What about 20mg zyrtec w benadryl (diphenhydramine)?What else wrks 4 hives

Maximum dose of Zyrtec is 10mg daily so best to avoid exceeding that amount. Check out goo.gl/2dmzkm, goo.gl/v31okZ & http://goo.gl/uYTfTC for more info re chronic urticaria (hives). ...Read more

Can reactivation of shingles cause pins nedls crawling bugs on skin severe at night with chills, fever, fatigue, nausea muscle aches /gulain barre syndme?

Can reactivation of shingles cause pins nedls crawling bugs on skin severe at night with chills, fever, fatigue, nausea muscle aches /gulain barre syndme?

Unlikely: Some people think you can only get shingles once and some others think you can get it more than once. It is unusual to get shingles in people under 40 years old. Mild systemic symptoms are more associated with shingles, such as fatigue, low fever, more of a mild viral syndrome. Chills, nausea, muscle aches would be unusual. To my knowledge gulain barre has not been associated with shingles. ...Read more
