Ana320 homogeneous, sed rate 5, CRP 5, skin rash from sun, hx. 1996 of ana80, CMV igg58, EBV igg>90, liver and kidney cysts, mild splenomegaly?

Ana320 homogeneous, sed rate 5, CRP 5, skin rash from sun, hx. 1996 of ana80, CMV igg58, EBV igg>90, liver and kidney cysts, mild splenomegaly?

No simple answer: A postive ANA is not a true marker of disease. Your photosensitivity may be a sign for Discoid lupus. I would suggest seeing a Rheumatologist fresh, and let them perform a full history and physical and not just test. The probability of a severe disease with normal ESR and CRP is lower. They are nonspecific but can be increased in most rheumatological disease. See a good MD, a full exam and history ...Read more

See your doctor: Your symptoms may represent an allergic reaction to the sulfa component of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). This allergic reaction may also affect the kidney and cause kidney injury and hence, it is important that you see your doctor soon. I am also unclear as to why you would be taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for such a prolonged period of time. ...Read more

My daughter has a skin irritation/rash around her face when she eats certain food not sure what it is ava age 3, healthy no known allergies so far immunizations up to date? Thinking it might be red dye #40?

Rash: This could simply be a basic irritant dermatitis due to little ones getting as much food on their face as they get in their mouth. And the food can irritate the skin. Also, kids will lick around the mouth, causing irritation. See the pediatrician for evaluation or a dermatologist. ...Read more

Wife had MRI with contrast dye yesterday.  Has blotchey rash predominantly on chest, low back, and abdomen.  Skin is warm.  Face was swollen, has subsided.  Took allegra (fexofenadine) yesterday & today. Worry?

Improving: If her symptoms are improving on Allegra (fexofenadine) there should be no permanent harm. It is important that you report this allergic reaction to the radiology department and to your physician so that this contrast agent will not be used on you in the future. In addition see to it that this allergy is listed in your records. ...Read more

Could be shingles:(: Even though herpes zoster/shingles is uncommon in younger people your age, it can happen. The pain comes first; then the blistering rash can occur a few days later. The burning nature of your pain raises suspicion for this. See your doctor ASAP; anti-viral medications may be useful to shorten the course/reduce your symptoms. Best wishes:) ...Read more
