What makes my 4 year old break out in itchy rash whenever she eats anything with tomatoes?

What makes my 4 year old break out in itchy rash whenever she eats anything with tomatoes?

Workup/Mgt: I agree that a food allergy panel called a CAP test is indicated. If the rash occurred particularly within 4 hours of eating the tomatoes, an allergic reaction is most likely. The itchiness as well indicates an allergic reaction. Avoiding the food, and using an antihistamine by mouth is part of the management. I would also suggest a discussion about pediatric epi pen with your physician. ...Read more

Does tanning help clear up Pityriasis Rosea? I know tanning is bad, but im suffering with this itchy rash and I don't go over board with tanning.

No: Phototherapy using UVA and UVB is used to treat various skin conditions, including pityriasis rosea in rare cases when the itch cannot be controlled by other means. However, tanning beds are not suited for this purpose as they typically emit only UVA. Phototherapy using UVA is done in a manner that quantifies dosing and may incorporate topical sensitizers that helps target the treatment. ...Read more

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

Unlikely: Usually, as you are I think surmising, the Lamictal rash comes on when you have begun this medication. It can be localized on the face alone, but usually it is more diffuse on the body. Again, it typically comes within weeks (not years) of administration. However, given the potential seriousness of rashes with the drug, I would get checked out with a dermatologist as soon as you can. ...Read more
