First or second line antihistamines are a good first step if you suspect hives. If this is recurring or persisting for more than a week, consider a virtual consult to discuss potential causes and the necessary work up. ...Read more

I'm diagnosed w/ low vit.D. Was given Synergy Vita-D 1000iu. After a week I started having rashes on my face & neck. Could it be the Vit.D causing it?

I'm diagnosed w/ low vit.D. Was given Synergy Vita-D 1000iu. After a week I started having rashes on my face & neck. Could it be the Vit.D causing it?
