Rashes can be caused by an allergic trigger (something you ate, came in contact with) or a virus or a bacterial infection, etc. See your dr. For a visual inspection of the rash and the proper diagnosis, that way the treatment will be geared to help you best. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello!

Urticaria: There's a lot of different formulations of protein powder out there. You should look at the ingredients and try to use the one with least preservatives. Hives on just wrists, elbows hands and knees sounds a bit odd..but anything can happen with the human body. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will only mask symptoms and make you drowsy. Ask your friends if they are having any issues with their supplements as well. ...Read more

DVT upper extremity: It could be a blood clot in the superficial or deep veins or both superficial and deep veins and the only way to know is to get a noninvasive scan called a Duplex venous ultrasound. I suggest that you get one as soon as possible. ...Read more

I got 10 red spots on the back of my hand. The first time I got them was a week ago and had them twice since then only last for am hour. Not itchy ?

Unusual: Fleeting nonitchy red spots may be due to transient dilatation of tiny blood vessels in the back of the hand which would be more blotchy. Hives or insect bites or allergic reactions last longer than an hour and are itchy. Did exposure to a change in temperature or something that came in contact with your hand play a role? ...Read more

Contact allergy: What you described suggested allergy to some thing you came in contact with. Try to keep a note of the things that you may have touched prior to the rash to discern if there is a pattern or if you can identify a product that causes the symptoms. If you identify, then you may wish to challenge yourself and if the product causes rash you will need to avoid it. ...Read more
