Hives: Thisis an allergic reaction most likely. As long as she has no breathing problems or loss of blood pressure these are hives. You can try bendryl but you will need to see your doctor. Look for exposures like a new medication, a food, now fabrices, new chemical exposures, infection = the list is very long and often we can not discover the cause. We call this urticaria. ...Read more

Hives / urticaria : Usually, itchy bumps are urticaria, or hives. They go away in a few hours and the skin looks normal . They are white in the bump area and usually it is pink around the outside. The bumps are called wheals and the areas around them are called flares. If you don't have ANY redness anywhere, it may be eczema or something else. Antihistamines like zyrtec, Allegra or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) help the itch. See a doc! ...Read more

Got the Depo-Provera shot a month ago, 2 weeks bleeding, faints, extreme headaches, sides and back pains, big red itchy bumps on legs, dizzy, sad, moodswings, confus?

Got the Depo-Provera shot a month ago, 2 weeks bleeding, faints, extreme headaches, sides and back pains, big red itchy bumps on legs, dizzy, sad, moodswings, confus?

Question is whether: It is related to depo-provera? Is it still there? The depo shot should not cause the extreme multi system event u describe. It will stop estrogen production which can cause changes in mood which can exacerbate anxiety which can make your body feel its going haywire. You can add oral estradiol, .5 mg per day, see if that helps. If that bad though u need to go in, cld b something else. ...Read more

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved i would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more
