Hello I hv cellulitics on left leg. All rashes has been gone but swelling... swelling is till there & it almost one month m suffering from it.?

Chronic lymphedema: Your lymphatic system that drains fluids from various body parts was likely inflamed during the cellulitis. The resulting leg swelling can take months to years to forever to completely resolve. Use compression hose, elevate leg as much as possible above level of heart and consider use of a compression machine or massage to reduce the fluid burden. Consult with a vascular surgeon may be helpful. ...Read more

Last night I ate 2 pcs of chicken and develop some rashes in my arms and legs, can I consider it as one of d foods tat im allergic with?

Not yet: Symptoms such as rash after exposure to something like food may be due to an allergy, but there are multiple things, both allergic and non allergic, that can cause a rash. Food allergy is just one and can be serious if that is the cause. I recommend seeing a board certified allergist for an evaluation and testing. ...Read more

Plan b one step pill and hives related? I took the Plan B pill 2 almost 3 weeks ago and I've started to get hives or rashes on my stomach, arms, legs, back and neck. It weird because I had no other side effects. But I was wondering if it could be related

The: The odds of you having an allergic reaction from a Plan B taken three weeks ago are highly unlikely. Even if this was the case, there is no treatment aside from over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for itching. Consider other potential allergens like new products, lotions, or soaps.
Good luck. ...Read more

One of my students what diagnosed with scabies. I have developed a red rash on my legs but it is flat and not little bumps. It does not itch it burns.

Unlikely scabies: It is unlikely that you were infected with scabies in a normal classroom situation. You would have to be in physical contact for the scabies to transfer from person to person, or clothes to clothes. Scabies is also very itchy usually, so if your rash doesn't itch it is even less likely to be scabies. If you have recently shaved your legs it may be folliculitis, but only an exam can tell. ...Read more
