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

Have a rash on the inside of my arm, could it be bird mites that cause this?

Unfortunately it is: Pretty much impossible to diagnose a rash over the internet since we can not see it. In addition without knowing your health and social history regarding bird exposure we cannot comment on the possibility for your concern. The answer is, sure it could be bird mites causing your rash but it could also be about fifty other things. Make an appointment with a health care provider for an evaluation. ...Read more

A skin rash that feels like sand paper on my 3 yr old daughter and has no distinct color.?

Many possibilities: If the child has fever & this started around the genitals & armpits it could be the rash of strep. If home bound in a poorly humidified space it could be dry skin.If you are using a new bath soap or shampoo, this could be a minor reaction. You can probably just monitor the issue unless there is a fever, then I would have her seen soon. ...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.

I get a "pins/needles" bleeding rash for days after using toilet paper for bm. 3 drs. Have yet to find the cause (no hemorrhoids/ candida). Plz help!

Specialist: Consider seeing a colorectal surgeon if you haven't already. There are a host of issues and it requires a long discussion of questions and a thorough exam to isolate the source. For now, use calmoseptine ointment 2-3 times a day to protect the skin until a definitive treatment plan is decided upon. ...Read more

Is it mites? Family is itchy but no rash. PA says try Nix (permethrin) as an overnight lotion, shower off in the am. Sound like reasonable course of treatment?

Itchy Family: Treating the entire family for mites when the entire itches seems reasonable. Mites, on the other hand, should not cause loose stools. Loose stools along with rash make me think of viral or bacterial causes. Other environmental causes should be considered such as new laundry detergent, new soap, new carpet, new paint, new pet or recent travel and the related environmental exposures. ...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

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

2 weeks ago healthy 46 y/o f hit forehead on stall door, fell hit rt side forehead on paper holder. Hematoma on center forehead, gone w/ ice in 2 dys. S?

No major concerns: You had blunt trauma to your forehead from the fall. Hematoma is just a small collection of blood beneath the skin surface. These can be resorbed on their own. If you fell hard enough, there is the possibility of a fracture. This is something that should be evaluated with x-rays and/or a ct scan after a full physical evaluation. ...Read more

Is it unusual to eat paper?

Unless it is edible: Rice paper, then it certainly is not normal. Pica is eating materials that have no nutritional value. See your physician to determine if a nutritional deficiency is contributing to eating paper. If it isn't then please see a psychologist for therapy. This is a dangerous behavior because it could cause a bezoar & because of chemicals used to process many paper products. ...Read more
