You might need antibiotics if it's bad. I would call your primary doc today to be seen. ...Read more

Sometimes when I eat shrimp I get a rash around my neck and chest. I do not get a rash everytime I eat shrimp. And I am not allergic to Bay seasoning.

Avoidance: Avoidance remains the best approach since shrimp is not an essential nutrient in one's diet. On occasions, one may be allergic to just one species of shrimp and that may account for your occasional symptoms. How well the shrimp is cooked may also affect its allergenicity. See an allergist if you have further questions and are unwilling to give up all shrimps. ...Read more

How do I get rid of the rash on my chest from my allergic reaction to icy hot? It burns and itches

Irritant Dermatitis: Otc Hydrocortisone and/or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream can help unless you have any open sores.
