I got allergy due to hot summers due to which my skin itches a lot and got small red rashes. What should I do to cure it?

Multiple: How long does the rash last after you got out of the sun? Do you have the same issues after exercise? The problem can be due to what is called cholinergic urticaria which usually occurs during the cooling off period after an increase in core body temperature (hot shower, sun, exercise, stress etc). If this is what you are experiencing, then taking an antihistamine prior to the exposure may work. ...Read more

Dr, I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?

Probably not: But you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more

Hi. I've been getting really painful, red, bumpy (sometimes pus-filled), sometimes itchy rashes in places and during times when I sweat more. Allergy?

I have itching in my jaw that subsides periodically for about a month now. No immediate cause is apparent such as hives/allergy or rash, redness. Infl?

Itch: Since there's no obvious rash, swelling or redness associated with the itch, some superficial nerves may be irritable causing itch which is a relative of pain. What triggers the itch is mysterious. I would avoid applying cortisone type ointment to sooth the itch as permanent skin changes can result. Ask your pharmacist to recommend a nonsteroid ointment that you can use on your face if needed. ...Read more

I have severe allergic reactions to wheat and gluten. Get very bad skin rashes, blotches of little watery blisters and red bumps. Migraines. How do I know if its just an allergy or if it's celuiac disease?

Intestinal problems?: The main difference if that Celiac Disease causes damage to the intestines and with that, cramping and diarrhea. All of your symptoms except for the watery blisters can be caused by the wheat allergy and possibly other grass grains (barley, rye, oats, rice and rarely corn) Wheat, barley and rye contain gluten. The others don’t but sometimes can be cross-contaminated. ...Read more
