Hives from head to toe an hour after eating shellfish for the first time. No swelling or breathing difficulty but extremely itchy and uncomfortable...

Likely allergic!: I highly recommend taking Benadry, two tablets, to help reduce the itching and discomfort. If you develop any facial/mouth swelling or difficulty breathing, then you have to call 911 for help. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) takes roughly 30 minutes to work. Then you need to see an allergist for testing to determine your specific food allergies. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My 21 month old has itchy palms at night. What may be the cause and how do I treat it. She seems miserable at night. Thank YOU!

In addition to the: oral antihistamines (Benadryl) at night and topical 1% hydrocortisone cream, you can also try Aquaphor (more of an ointment) and if she'll keep them on, cotton gloves over that. Please talk to her pediatrician so that you can show him/her what the palms look like, if these treatments aren't helping. ...Read more

Medication?: An allergic reaction to a medication will often be the cause of itching of the palms and/or soles. If there are no new medications, then i would try to control the symptom by using a non-sedating anti-histamine such as claritin, (loratadine) Allegra or zyrtec. If the symptom continues it might be time to see an allergist. ...Read more

Itchy palms: I'd suggest to avoid scrubbing or washing with soaps for the time being - they could irritate and dry out the skin more. Try some eucerin cream or if no improvement, a very mild Hydrocortisone cream. Try to think if you've had any new irritants to your hands -scented lotions or perfumes, gloves, washing them more often... And try to avoid any triggers. ...Read more

Possible allergy: Itching of the palms and soles may be some sort of allergic reaction to something internal or external. Take notice to see when it happens. Do you get this reaction on exposure to heat or cold for example? In the meantime try taking an antihistamine as needed. See an allergist if symptoms persist or if HIves or swelling of lips,etc occur. ...Read more
