Hi, is there a medicine for allergies in eating chicken and eggs? I get skin rashes which are very itchy everytime i eat. Thank you.

Avoidance.: The way to avoid allergic reactions is to avoid eating chicken and eggs. An antihistamine such as Allegra or Claritin (loratadine) might blunt the reaction somewhat, if you take it before eating the offending food, but it won't work as well as not eating the food in the first place. ...Read more

Sometimes when I eat shrimp I get a rash around my neck and chest. I do not get a rash everytime i eat shrimp. And I am not allergic to Bay seasoning.

Sometimes when I eat shrimp I get a rash around my neck and chest. I do not get a rash everytime i eat shrimp. And I am not allergic to Bay seasoning.

Avoidance: Avoidance remains the best approach since shrimp is not an essential nutrient in one's diet. On occasions, one may be allergic to just one species of shrimp and that may account for your occasional symptoms. How well the shrimp is cooked may also affect its allergenicity. See an allergist if you have further questions and are unwilling to give up all shrimps. ...Read more

Shrimp allergy? Ate some & within minutes my lips were bright red my face red and a rash on cheeks also lips numb. Will it get worse, i rarely eat it?

Shrimp allergy? Ate some & within minutes my lips were bright red my face red and a rash on cheeks also lips numb. Will it get worse, i rarely eat it?

It's possible: It is possible that you could have developed a shrimp allergy later in life, although this is not common. The lip swelling/numbness and face flushing/rash seems to be a give-away, especially immediately after eating it. Of course, you could be responding to any other ingredient in the dish, as well. Take antihistamine now, as it could get worse. (your reaction in the future could worsen as well!). ...Read more

Why does my baby get such bad rashes?

Why does my baby get such bad rashes?

Maybe sensitive skin: Some babies have much more sensitive skin than others. For those babies, i recommend a mild, unscented baby wash (such as aveeno (oatmeal) baby or cetaphil). If your baby's skin is dry or prone to eczema, try a mild lotion (cetaphil, eucerin, and aveeno (oatmeal) are my favorites). Sometimes more severe rash can be do to a food allergy (even if your are breastfeeding) or an infection, so check with your doctor. ...Read more
