When I exercise (running, jogging, jumping) I get really itchy. Any ideas on how to alleviate this?

Antihistamine: The rise in body temperature can trigger the release of histamine by certain cells in your skin. Pretreatment with an antihistamine, about 30 minutes before exercising could help alleviate the problem. Here is an article about it: http://www. Bottomlinepublications.

My right eye keeps watering, it's not itchy or painful, just annoying, my make up keeps running down my face! Is there anything I can do, ?

Needs evaluation: You may have a blocked lacrimal drainage canal. The tears bathe the eye, pass to the nasal side of the eye and then go down a plumbing system into the nose. It can sometimes narrow or even get blocked and this can be spontaneous. Check with your ophthalmologist who can evaluate this and see there the blockage is. ...Read more

Lately my face gets really red whn I exercise. Running with humid temp. My upper leg got warm red a bit itchy but the lower leg not my body not regulat?

Normal to get flush: Red face from vigorous exercise as circulation is increased to your face, arms, legs and torso. It may not be the best to run in humid temperature if it's very hot, and you must hydrate as much as possible to not get dehydrated even in humidity. If your upper leg gets itchy, you may be releasing histamine during your intense exercise. Not sure I'm answering your question completely. Please resubmit. ...Read more

What's the side effects of having a nasal steroid since I have itchy bad running nose in the mornings. Please advise doctors...?

What's the side effects of having a nasal steroid since I have itchy bad running nose in the mornings. Please advise doctors...?

Don't worry: The main side effect is nasal dryness and nose bleeds. Overall, nasal steroids are very safe. When taken for a long time, they may increase the pressure inside the eyes. There may be some effect on bones, again when taken for many years, but the effect is much smaller than oral steroids. In children, only beclomethasone has been associated with a small decrease in growth. ...Read more

When I run my legs get extremely itchy and get a rash. I am not new to running but it always happens. Why is thia and can I prevent it?

Interesting!: Some people have been known to get leg itching and rashes from running (cause is unknown). If it is from histamine release, one can try taking Claritin (loratadine) or Zyrtec, 1/2 hour before running. If it is from the cold, try wearing sweats. If it is from blocked sweat glands, try a sauna 3 times a week. Maybe one can make a dermatologist appointment, and then run to the clinic to show a fresh itchy rash. ...Read more

Rash: While in med school, one professor used to say- there are 65 different causes of rash! Anyways, most common are viral illnesses, allergies, fungal, yeast etc. If uniform dotted rash allover body, probably viral. Allergic rashes are irregular, of different sizes, shapes, sometimes bumpy, many time itchy.

As long as your child is drinking well, playful, just buy some time, it will go away. ...Read more

Before these occur, patients describe a period of simple itching of the skin when exercising or running.

I get sweet itchiness once/twice in a day. My eyes in general are watery. Little wind, warm/mild spicy food makes eyes watery and nose starts running.

I get sweet itchiness once/twice in a day. My eyes in general are watery. Little wind, warm/mild spicy food makes eyes watery and nose starts running.

Dry eye and more: This may represent a combination of conditions such as dry eye, blepharitis / rosacea, and allergic conjunctivitis. Tearing in response to air movement usually indicates reflex tearing. That is, the eye is on the borderline of being dry, and the wind will put it over the edge and the eye tears in response. Itching is more consistent with allergy, and spicy food with blepharitis / rosacea. ...Read more

Allergies: It sounds like you are having allergies. It would be good to try and figure out what you may be allergic to. Animal? New product? Pollen? Dust miites? If it is something you can eliminate like a new product that would be good.

I have a small lump above my foot on my shin looks like a bite, isn't painful or itchy it's just there! I've recently started running could this be y

Watch and document.: There are just too many things that could cause a small lump to make even an educated guess. The fact that it's not painful, color indicated that is probably not inflamed or infected. The depth of the lump as well as it's firmness could possibly narrow down the possibilities. Keep an eye on it, maybe even take a picture of it, and resubmit the information if the lump gets larger. ...Read more
