Nasal steroids reduce swelling in your nose so you can breathe better. Allergy shots (immunotherapy) may also be an option. They treat allergies over a long period of time. Ask your doctor if they make sense for you. ...Read more

Urticaria: Can't see a picture of your rash to see if it has the typical wheal and flare of hives, sort of like a mosquito bite or TB skin test in appearance. Caused by allergies to many things, including latex and dyes. Also result from viral illnesses. Best to seek treatment. Try Benadryl every 6 hrs in the meantime. If throat swelling or shortness of breath, ER. http://www.dermnet.com/images/Urticaria-Acute ...Read more

Are they actually abrasions or are the more like raised welts? Again, hard to try to diagnose without seeing it. ...Read more
