Dehydration : Dehydration can occur easily when a patient has an infection. An infection can cause a fever, even when the patient isn't always aware, and the skin flushes, with more fluid evaporating. In addition, if a patient isn't feeling well, they often don't drink or eat as much as they typically do. Patient's who are on other medications, including cardiovascular medications, can be more sensitive to the effects of dehydration.

I had an allergy to doxycycline 4 weeks ago I can't take benedryl and I took prednisone for 12 days and I still itch, I have been taking ranitidine?

Cause?: I doubt that the allergy to doxycycline can linger on this long and thus your itching must be from something else. In the absence of skin rash, dry skin is the most common cause for itching.

I'm curious as to what is the best medicine to cure allergy?

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens.
