Can I put hydrocortisone or any cream in my burning and itching vigina? I have oral fruit allergy syndrome. I didn't know latex comes from trees.

Probably: If the cream does not irritate you, it can be used. However there are also special formulation rx product for this purpose. Yes latex comes from rubber trees and patients allergic to latex may react to fruits such as avocado, kiwi, banana etc. However this has nothing to do with your vaginal itching. See an allergist if this remains a problem if you are not allergic to latex. ...Read more

How long does a allergic reaction from a shingle vaccine last, and ca I take allergy meds and use hydrocortisone?

How long does a allergic reaction from a shingle vaccine last, and ca I take allergy meds and use hydrocortisone?

Don't know: Since the Zoster vaccine has been around for about a decade, the long-term efficacy can only be ascertained by experience. Theoretically it should last a life-time but practically only time will time. Since it is a live vaccine, you need to inform your doctor about this if you are on high-dose oral steroid (not topical or inhaled steroid) before getting the vaccine. Allergy medication is fine. ...Read more

For the past few days my left wrist has been very itchy. I have a bad nickel allergy so no jewelry. I tried lotion, Olux, and Cortizone (hydrocortisone) and no relief.

What is your exposur: This brings up the question of what you may be exposed to now that you are not aware of. The nickel allergy reaction is contact dermatitis and this suggests you may have another sensitizer. You might do an inventory - watch, new detergent, etc. This is not generalized but localized to something near the left wrist. Is the wrist itchy on the top or bottom? Maybe your dog has somet ...Read more

I have an allergy to nuts and I was wondering if my children would also be allergic?

Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Can a parents allergies be passed on to their children?

Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more
