Dust Mites: Over-the-counter or prescription allergy drugs can help control symptoms. Antihistamines relieve itching, sneezing, and watery eyes. Decongestants help with nasal congestion. Nasal steroids reduce swelling in your nose so you can breathe better. Allergy shots (immunotherapy) may also be an option. They treat allergies over a long period of time. Ask your doctor if they make sense for you. ...Read more

Does this rash look like hives, or is it due to dust mites? Or even food allergy?

Does this rash look like hives, or is it due to dust mites? Or even food allergy?

Urticaria: Can't see a picture of your rash to see if it has the typical wheal and flare of hives, sort of like a mosquito bite or TB skin test in appearance. Caused by allergies to many things, including latex and dyes. Also result from viral illnesses. Best to seek treatment. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) every 6 hrs in the meantime. If throat swelling or shortness of breath, ER. http://www.dermnet.com/images/Urticaria-Acute ...Read more

Can a rash from scabies spread after permethrin treatment of the mites are killed? Just did treatment last night, rash on cheek now, not itchy

Probably not but: Even if the mites are killed, they have left some droppings behind in the skin areas where they had visited. The allergic reaction to the droppings may linger on for a couple of more weeks. However it is uncommon to involve the face and thus the problem may not be scabies. ...Read more
