My son has alternaria allergy (outdoor fungus), what kind of allergy medication should he take?

Anything that works: The specific air born trigger to your child's allergy is less important than the effect the medications.Anti-histamines, nasal sprays & mast cell regulators may be a benefit. Most opt for a 24hr preparation for convenience.I like the non sedating antihistamines like fexophenadine(allegra) , steroid nasal spray (flonase). If your child cooperates & tolerates the med it should help. ...Read more

If you have similar looking rashes other areas, possibly other causes and would need to be evaluated. ...Read more

Cod liver oil okay to take? I have a shellfish allergy. Also double q. Are probiotics good for fungus on tongue or yeast overgrowth in stomach?

Cod liver oil OK: There are 5 main groups of seafood: bony fish (cod), crustaceans (shrimp), bivalves (clam), cephalopods (squid), gastropods (squid). There is cross-reactivity within each group but rarely between groups, so cod is ok with shellfish allergy. Probiotics are healthy but have minimal effect on mouth fungus (thrush).

What to do if I have read that allergies is cause by candida on the intestine walls. what medicine is effective in killing candida(fungi)?

Be more discerning: You're an adult and I hope that you don't actually believe everything that you read. This is not only obviously false (why do different people get different allergies? why don't pathologists such as myself ever see candida there? why don't drugs that really kill candida reverse allergies?) -- it's a cruel scam. Read the blogs -- there are plenty of remedies but no one is ever cured. ...Read more

Once you have had a lung fungus, can it spread to your brains.  Also, it will cause you to start having allegy?
