Laundry Detergent Allergy Rash
Constant itchy skin all over with no visible rash or known allergy. Tried moisturizers, switching detergents and other remedies. Suggestions?
Doctor can evaluate: A person with itchy skin all over, but no visible rash, can see his primary care doctor to see what the problem could be. If the skin is very dry, itching could result even without an obvious rash. Otherwise, the doctor might look for internal problems that can cause itching, such as drug side effects, liver disease, kidney disease, intestinal parasites, etc...
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
What is causing my all over itching without a rash? No known allergies. Antihistamines and lotions do not help. Mild soaps, detergents, etc do but hel
Dry skin: In the winter months, the first thing I consider would be dry skin. Try using unscented soap and apply a skin moisturizer all over within 3 minutes after bathing to see it this helps. It may take a few days for the skin to calm down. If problem persists, then need to consult a dermatologist or allergist.
Why is top of my hands burning&rash? Allergy reactions from doing laundry, wash dishes, or just dry? I've tried using lotion but it made worse.
Option: Best to see a doctor. But for over the counter option try benedryl cream or the lowest cortisone ointment for itchiness. Please read side effects and consult pharmacist before purchasing. If still itchy, must go see doctor.

Allergic reaction to laundry detergent. I have a terrible rash and can't sleep. I get severe akathisia from antihistamines. What else can I take?
Detergent reaction: You can try OTC topical hydrocortisone 1% cream. Akathesia, although very rare, may occur with first generation antihistamines as diphenhydramine (Benadryl), hopefully not the case with the newer less sedating as loratadine or desloratadine, as for your akathesia vs RLS, I believe you need to see an experienced neurologist for assessment, best wishes
New laundry detergent caused me to get a skin rash on my legs and behind my knees. Now it seems behind my knees is a little swollen. What can I do?
Stop: Stop using the new detergent and switch to one without harsh chemicals or fragrances. Something like ivory or similar store brands...See your family doc for a check of the symptoms to make sure that is what it actually is....

Exam needed: I strongly recommend that a dermatologist examine you for diagnosis and treatment. We have recently been hearing about a lot of scabies cases. Other possibilities include eczematoid dermatitis, allergic reaction. I think it's quite important that you be examined soon. Appropriate tests will be ordered.
I have had a rash on leg for 3 or 4 weeks, lotions do not help. Cortizone (hydrocortisone) 10 doesn't help either. I have not changed laundry detergent or soap.
See a dermatologist: You need a professional diagnosis and prescription. Your laundry detergent is not relevant. No skin rash is related to any laundry detergent.
Probably: If the rash itches, then it would more likely be from allergy. Why use zicam? It has really not been proven to be effective for anything
My friend has rashes on her back & its itchy that makes her mad but she has no allergy of anything what this could be?
Sounds like eczema.: Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is in the same family of conditions as allergies and asthma. It can't be cured but usually can be controlled. It's best managed by using a sensitive skin cleanser, avoiding bathing in very hot water, and using a sensitive skin lotion at least 3 times daily, even when the rash isn't there. If doing this doesn't help enough, she should see her doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
I've been itchy nearly constantly for several months with no visible rashes or bites and no known allergies. What can I do?
Decrease inflammatio: Allergy tablets, I am guessing, are referring to antihistamines such as zyrtec (cetirizine), Claritin (loratadine), or Allegra (fexofenadine) act by blocking histamine receptors, which are responsible for the inflammation, swelling, itching, and erythema associated with allergic rashes.
