Is there a relationship between IBS and food allergies?

Is there a relationship between IBS and food allergies?

If you don't look...: Ibs is a clinical group of symptoms of unknown cause. If you suspect specific foods that trigger intestinal cramping, diarrhea, dumping syndrome.And you have positive allergy skin test to these foods then technically you no longer have ibs. You have a food allergy. This situation is not very common but it is worth looking since avoiding the food is better have taking chronic medications.

Is there a relationship between speech delay and food allergies?

Is there a relationship between speech delay and food allergies?

No: People blame "food allergies" for many things. Allergic reactions to foods include itching in the mouth while eating the food, followed by rashes or hives within 5 minutes to four hours of eating the food, and/or nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, bloating, and diarrhea. Severe reactions can include wheezing, low blood pressure, and death. Other things, like autism are speech delay, aren't.

What is the relationship between asthma and allergy? How to differentiate between them?

What is the relationship between asthma and allergy? How to differentiate between them?

Asthma vs allergy: Asthma is a lung disease with increased irritability and inflammation. In many asthmatics much of the underlying inflammation is caused by being allergic to one or usually multiple allergens. Therefore avoiding exposure to or decreasing sensitivity (immunotherapy) to those allergens decreases the information and irritability of the lung making control easier.

Is there any relationship between transient phlebitis and spontaeous bruising?

Define: You need to define each of these. Probably no association. But the terms used are too vague to elaborate on. Evaluation by your Dr should answer your questions.

What's the relationship between diet and easy bruising?

What's the relationship between diet and easy bruising?

Poor nutrition: Sometimes, if your diet is very poor and you don't get proper protein intake or nutrients or vitamins, then that may lead to easy bruising. But, easy bruising can also be due to an underlying blood disorder. So, if this happens, I would get checked out.

What is the relationship between allergy and cold sores?

What is the relationship between allergy and cold sores?

Unlikely cause: Cold sores (apthous ulcers) are often triggered by stress. Hypothetically, suffering from poorly controlled "allergies" might be stressful enough to possibly trigger an ulcer or the lack of sleep, due to chronic nasal congestion from allergies, might be physiologically "stressful", but allergies do not directly "cause" these ulcers.

Can you explain the relationship between allergies and urticaria?

Can you explain the relationship between allergies and urticaria?

Allergy & Hives: Urticaria, or hives, are caused by release of histamine in the skin; this leads to itching and a raised rash. Histamine is also released in allergic reactions; in the nose it causes drainage & sneezing while in the lungs it causes wheezing & tightness. Hives can be due to an allergic response to a food or medicine but they can also be a contact response or due to direct histamine activation.

Could a milk allergy cause bruising?

Could a milk allergy cause bruising?

Unlikely: Milk allergy can lead to many skin symptoms including itching, hives, angioedema (swelling) and worsening eczema. The only time I've seen bruising is when a patient has been scratching so hard at the hives, that the trauma from scratching has left bruises. The milk allergy itself should not lead to bruising.

Elbow cellulitis: on day 8 of azirthomycin. Only did 5 days of sulfameth bc of allergy. Bruise was gone 2 days in with both. Now it's back. What? Why?

Elbow cellulitis: on day 8 of azirthomycin. Only did 5 days of sulfameth bc of allergy. Bruise was gone 2 days in with both. Now it's back. What? Why?

Wrong abx: If it improved with abx then recurred, it means that the organism causing the problem has not been killed. You need to consult an infectious disease doctor to make sure that this not from mrsa. By the way, Azithromycin is not that great a drug for cellulitis.

Agree with you: Bruises are not typical for allergies. Shaving may cause cuts but not bruises. Suggest you see another doctor to make sure that there is nothing wrong with your clotting mechanism.

Just watch: If there's no pain and no blurriness of your vision, I would just treated as a bruise and watch it. If you had any kind of medication that could thin your blood such as aspirin or nonsteroidal meds, that could be the culprit. If it doesn't get any better then you can be evaluated by your PCP.

Stye: It sounds like an acute blocked oil gland of the eyelid, or stye. Discontinue contact lens wear and begin a hot compress routine to help bring the backed up secretions to a head. A gentle massage of the area after a 10' hot compress helps. Repeat 2 to 4 times daily. Cleansing the lashes and eyelids with diluted baby shampoo removes bacteria which aides recovery. After a few days, if no help c md.
