Sodium Benzoate Allergy Symptoms
Can maalox (aluminium hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide and simethicone) cause some drug allergy symptoms like rash?
Yes: One can become allergic to any substance at any time, even if you have tolerated it before. Dangerous allergic reactions such as lip, face, tongue, or throat swelling require immediate trip to er; lesser reactions like a rash or hives can be treated with over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) -- for an adult 2 tablets every 4 hours. Good luck! ...Read more

Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?
Hearing: It is unlikely that any hearing loss is related to the items you list. Hearing tests are essential - I have had them and am wearing hearing aids. Many big stores offer hearing tests at no cost. In my area it is Costco or Sam's Club. There should be something like this all over the USA. ...Read more
Allergy question: I am not familiar with this condition and I do allergy as a part of my practice I do know about stomach irritation and upset as a result of ingesting mono sodium gluconate. My advice is to avoid it if it is a substance which causes you trouble. In general it is a preservative and is usually listed as an ingredient in foods, so check the labels of the foods you purchase. Avoid chinese food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sulfa allergy?: Not all sulfas cross react. Sulfa antibiotics do not cross react with most other sulfa drugs. Of course you could develop a second allergy though it is unlikely. ...Read more
No fluoride allergy: The authors of diatribes on the dangers of Fluoride use ambiguous & misleading terms to scare people about this important anti-cavity substance. Anecdotal reports from >50 yrs ago reported hypersensitive effects to 1 mg of fluoride. Fluoride supplements for children do not contain that much fluoride. The "hypersensitive" status refers to increased sensitivity not true allergy in these rare cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The usual culprits: The causes of allergy are many but the symptoms are predictable & limited. Hives, swelling of hands, feet, eyelids & lips called angioedema, breathing issues due to windpipe swelling or asthma & GI symptoms like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain & diarrhea. Since Erythromycin commonly causes GI symptoms it's hard to tell if this is allergy or intolerance when skin or breathing symptoms are absent. ...Read more
Stops inflammation: Steroids (different than the steroids that athletes use) are medicines that have many effects, but one is to turn off inflammatory reactions, especially allergic inflammation. Because they have so many effects, they are problem taken by mouth over time, where they are absorbed and can cause side effects. In the nose they are not absorbed, so there are few side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is sedating: Claritin, zyrtec, allegra, or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can help with allergy and asthma symptoms caused by allergies to respiratory pollens or other airborne allergens. One should work with his doctor to see which combination of over-the-counter allergy meds and prescription asthma inhalers/pills work the best. A patient will learn over time, what medicines to add or increase, depending on how "bad" the air is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I don't believe it: Internet scare sites peddling "natural food" are allowed by law to make claims that any scientist will recognize as misleading. There's no shortage of benzoic acid in many fruits (famously cranberries) and it's chemically interchangeable with sodium benzoate varying only with ph. This alone should tell you that the danger is hyped -- if they believed their stuff, they'd attack cranberries. ...Read more

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?
Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. well-absorbed,but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more
