I have itchy skin all over my body after I take a warm shower/ weather changes. I'm taking clartin every other day for months. What should I do?

Try moisturizing: Antihistamines typically don't help widespread itching unless you have been exposed to something to which you are allergic. Dry skin is notorious for causing itching, and can be exacerbated by hot showers or changes in weather. Try taking cooler showers and afterward liberally applying moisturizer while your skin is still damp. See a dermatologist or allergist if your symptoms persist. ...Read more

But a band aid on two days ago, took it off this morning, and now the skin where it was is itchy, warm and read, and a bit inflammed. Help? What to do

Leave it open: Why the bandaid? Allergy to tape and adhesive is common. Allergy to bacitracin, neomycin, neosporin, triple antibiotic is very common. It is 1 or more of these. Leave it open, wash, lubricate with vaseline (Aquaphor). Throw away the antibiotic ointment or antibiotic bandaid so no one will use again. Use Hydrocortisone cream to reduce itch and accelerate resolution of allergic dermatitis. ...Read more

I recommend that you take an antihistamine medication like Benadryl (which may cause drowsiness) and call your physician to inform him/her of your action to see if another medication is needed. ...Read more

My groin (pubic area) was itchy so I applied a anti-fungal cream (1% clotrimazole) but it irritated and burn my skin. How do I stop the burn/tingling?

See answer: It appears that you are either sensitive or allergic to some ingredient in the Clotrimazole cream causing a "contact dermatitis". Would recommend washing thoroughly with mild, neutral ph soap and apply an over the counter 1 or 2% Hydrocortisone cream or ointment 2-3x a day. Can take up to a couple of weeks to resolve depending on severity. Hope this helps. ...Read more
