Try switching to hypoallergenic soap and consider an allergy pill like loratidine and a mositerizer like cetaphil or lubriderm (unscented).

Diagnosed wit mono dr gav me meloxicam, cephalexin keflex m broken out l have a rash its swollen on my face chin around eyes is this normal or alleric?

Could be either: Some viral infections (like mono) can cause you to develop a rash with penicillin related antibiotics (like cephalexin). Given the swelling, it sounds more like an allergic reaction. You should see your doctor, who can prescribe a different antibiotic if they feel it is needed. If at any time you develop inability to swallow or trouble breathing, go immediately to the ER. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Face tingling around eyes and nose accompanied by neck pain. Pain is worse when lying down. Ct and MRI of head came back fine. What could be causing it?

Cervicl radiculopath: It is possible that you have cervical radiculopathy but the CT or MRI should have seen that. Usually however this does not manifest with face tingling around the eyes and nose. Bells palsy is also a possibility as this would not show up on an MRI or CT scan. I'm curious to know if you saw a neurologist as this would be a good specialist to see. ...Read more
