I dusted, vaccumed, used vapor rub, cleaned nose took bath still smell dust, tickle in throat, eyes itch, chest hurts, face itches, inner ears itch.?

Allergies: This sounds like you have some allergies. Dust in homes can be tainted with lead dust, cockroach dander, pet dander, cigarrette smoke, among other toxins and allergic offenders. You need a whopping dose of antihistamine now, say 10 mg cetirizine by mouth. I am worried a little about your chest pain, especially if you have asthma. Do you have an albuterol inhaler at home with spacer? ...Read more

Dryness: If your eyelids are not inflamed, then this crusty or sticky matter in your eyes may be caused by blockages in the mucus secreting structures of the eyelids. Warm compresses may obviate this problem. However if the eyelids appear inflamed, more aggressive treatment is needed. An ophthalmologist can evaluate, advise and treat you best for this symptom. ...Read more

Dr. Can check throat: Infections of the tonsils, throat, neck lymph nodes, or sinuses, can cause sore throat, and neck ache. For some people, ear pressure or ear pain can also cause sore throat, and neck ache or headache. A primary care doctor can check to see if it is a routine problem like strep throat, which needs antibiotics. Taking some Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin (ibuprofen) can temporarily relieve pain. ...Read more

Possible varicella: If all the symptoms are on the same side and particularly if you experience pain, I would be concerned about a re activation of the chicken pox virus Varicella. Taking antiviral medication early can be helpful and have minimal risk. Have a doctor look at the area ASAP. This can become severe. ...Read more

Contact dermatitis?: In the USA, I would think about poison ivy or poison oak as a possible cause. I don't know if there are similar plants that can cause skin irritation in the UAR. Did you use a new sunscreen or lotion? Stop any new products, and continue the cortisole a few more days. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream may help the itch. Do not use cortisole cream for more than 7 days on the face and neck. See your doc if 2-3 days ...Read more

Will a stye make your eye swell up and itch? I have a gland in front of my ear swollen too. Yesterday, my eye was itching where the stye has started. But today it is worse.

DoNotDecryTheStye: A stye (otherwise called a "hordeolum, " (don't ask me why; check a dictionary from 1610) can do what you've described and much more. In any event they hurt and make you look like you have a big cold sore (or worse) on your eyelid (a real conversation starter, right?). Some go away with warm compresses. Those that don't respond to that need a doctor. What the doctor does depends on how bad it is. ...Read more

Seborrheic Dermatiti: If this is a recurring problem, it may be seborrheic dermatitis. This is a troublesome condition of unknown cause, although it can be worsened by stress. Try small amounts of over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream. Your skinseb should clear it up in a few days. Unfortunately, the condition will probably recur--but you can control it with judicious applications of the cortisone cream. ...Read more
