Medication?: An allergic reaction to a medication will often be the cause of itching of the palms and/or soles. If there are no new medications, then i would try to control the symptom by using a non-sedating anti-histamine such as claritin, Allegra or zyrtec. If the symptom continues it might be time to see an allergist. ...Read more

Allergic dermatitis.: Make sure you have washed off all the oil. An antihistamine, such as Diphenhydramine or loratidine, may be helpful. If no relief contact your physician, he may consider prescribing an oral steroid. In any case, avoid further exposure to the oil that caused this. ...Read more

Can someone have allergies to fish oil?

Dr. Alex Martinez
Board Certified, Allergy
164K people helped

Probably not: Oils are fats that don't usually cause allergic reactions (most allergies are directed against proteins). Manufacturers of fish oil supplements recommend that fish-allergic people avoid their product because they can't guarantee the absence of fish protein in their pills. One small study skin tested fish-allergic patients to fish oil and gave them supplements orally; none had an allergic response. ...Read more

Sunflower allergy --problem with oil?

No problem w/ oil: If you are allergic to sunflower seed, you may still eat or cook with the highly purified oil. The allergy is to the proteins in the sunflower seed. Highly purified sunflower oil should not contain any significant protein. However, in very highly sensitive patients with a history of a severe reaction, it may be best to avoid the sunflower oil as well. ...Read more
