You: You should visit your primary care provider or an allergist to have allergy skin or blood testing done. In the meantime try benadryl, (diphenhydramine) if that works then you can be more confident that it is allergy related. Also consider new lotions, detergents or soaps that you may be using.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Wife had MRI with contrast dye yesterday. Has blotchey rash predominantly on chest, low back, and abdomen. Skin is warm. Face was swollen, has subsided. Took allegra (fexofenadine) yesterday & today. Worry?

Improving: If her symptoms are improving on Allegra (fexofenadine) there should be no permanent harm. It is important that you report this allergic reaction to the radiology department and to your physician so that this contrast agent will not be used on you in the future. In addition see to it that this allergy is listed in your records. ...Read more

I had an allergic reaction to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) on 1/11/14 (swollen lips and rashes on abdomen & back arm). I was given doxycycline hyclate. Rash became bumps?

I had an allergic reaction to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) on 1/11/14 (swollen lips and rashes on abdomen & back arm). I was given doxycycline hyclate. Rash became bumps?

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim): If you meant that the rash was progressing without interruption despite switching to doxycycline, I would venture that the rash is just from the progression of the sulfa rash since the process will likely last for a week or two. Beware of sunlight exposure from doxycyline which may give a nasty sunburn for some people. ...Read more

Have a petal like dry skin rash on back of knee, to front, also a round one below belly button, was told it was ringworm/lotrimin, nope, any ideas?

Eczema: What you are describing sounds like eczema or an allergic contact dermatitis to nickel. Sometimes the nickel found in the metal snaps on jeans will contact the skin and cause an allergic reaction where it contacts. The rash on the back of your knee is likely more along the lines of eczema. It is difficult to tell, so I would recommend you see a dermatologist to check it out. ...Read more
