Rash From Strawberry Leaves Do People Have Contact Allergy To Them
Possible: Plant leaves contain chemicals that can lead to an allergic reaction. Additionally, food crops may be sprayed with materials which can also lead to rashes. Contact allergies generally result from repeated exposure to a substance. In the future, wear gloves or some other protective barrier to limit exposure. Additionally, wash well after contact. See your doctor if persists or worsens.See 1 more doctor answer
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
Breaking out head-toe from unknown contact allergy. Rash leaves scars. Waiting to see allergist. Derm said to take Zyrtec & Allegra together. Safe?
Yes safe, but: What are we treating? Is it contact allergy, then antihistamines won't help much, or is it a generalized reaction not related to a contactant? At any rate, follow the dermatologist advice until you see an allergist, good luck
Breaking out head to toe from unknown contact allergy. Rash leaves scars. Waiting to see allergist. Derm said to take Zyrtec & Allegra together. Safe?
Yes OK to take both: We often recommend patients take allegra and zyrtec together for intense itching. It is best to take allegra in the morning (non drowsy) and zyrtec in the evening (can cause slight drowsiness). In rare instances we advise two allegras (180 mg each) plus two zyrtecs (10 mg each) for severe itching. The main side effect may be drowsiness from zyrtec

Keratosis Pilaris: Most people with keratosis pilaris don't know they have it. While kp resembles goosebumps, it is characterized by the appearance of small, rough bumps on the skin. Primarily, it appears on the back and outer sides of the upper arms, but can also occur on thighs and buttocks or any body part except palms or soles. (often confused with acne.).

Contact allergy: Most of the time it is latex allergy. There r non-latex medical tapes. U can find them in all pharmacies. Some has a paper backing. Try those. If u don't develop a rash, then u r allergic to latex. When in doubt, consult a dermatologist or allergist for patch testing.See 1 more doctor answer
How accurate is a skin patch test to determine contact allergies which cause itching in absence of an obvious rash?
Patch testing: Patch testing is used to identify chemical sensitivities. Contact with these allergens causes a rash at the site of contact. If you do not have a body rash (but only itching) is much less likely that you have contact allergy as the cause of your symptoms. Start by eliminating fragranced products that may contact your skin (detergent, fabric softeners, soaps, lotions).
Itchy rash over entire body. Red/pink spots, surrounded by a white ring. At least 5/7 days/week for last month. No contact w/ known allergies.
See doctor: There are many types of rash and many causes (often unknown) for it. You need to see a dermatologist or allergist for an evaluation.
Allergic rash per dermatologist--have 3 months, spread over entire trunk now--food or contact- processed breakfast cereal allergy possible?
My 14 month old has a rash and I think it is contact dermatitis. He has allergies and asthma. My question is can he still go to daycare?
If contact rash, yes: Contact allergic-type rashes are not contagious to other children. Though your child's rash may be itchy or bothersome to him/her, it will not spread. If your child is comfortable and there are no signs of a secondary bacterial infection (pus/ yellow-green drainage from any of the spots), it should be fine to return to daycare.See 4 more doctor answers
Bad case of butt and thigh rash: is it contact dermatitis from an allergy to something in my running shorts or is it a bacterial or fungal infection?
Doubt an allergic: Rash especially in those areas. Contact dermatitis combined with a sterile or infective folliculitis is more common especially in active runners. Have your doctor take a look. If wearing spandex running gear change up to loose cotton running shorts and cotton underwear in the meantime. Try witch hazel to dry up rash unless painful, then definitely see your doctor.
Decrease inflammatio: Allergy tablets, I am guessing, are referring to antihistamines such as zyrtec (cetirizine), Claritin (loratadine), or Allegra (fexofenadine) act by blocking histamine receptors, which are responsible for the inflammation, swelling, itching, and erythema associated with allergic rashes.
Got some sort of allergy. Get these rashes in body. Have been eating 1 allegera everyday since 2 years. I think its reducing immunity of my body.
Good question. Yes: Most patients with atopic dermatitis or eczema, have regular nasal allergies, and many have asthma as well. Allergists prescribe immunotherapy for those conditions, and often the atopic dermatitis improves. There have been less studies on immunotherapy for atopic dermatitis than for the other two conditions, so the proof that it works isn't quite as strong. It doesn't usually hurt to try, carefully.See 1 more doctor answer
Dermatitis w/celiac: Dermatitis herpetiformis is the classic skin rash described with celiac disease. It is an intensely itchy raised vesicular eruption symmetrically distributed on the arms, legs, trunk, neck, scalp, and buttocks. Less than 10% of celiac disease patients will have the skin reaction, but 80% of those with dermatitis herpetiformis have celiac disease.See 1 more doctor answer
