    Sulfa allergy

    I have pink eye and went to the doctor. I told him I was allergic to sulfa medication and he filled the script with a name brand eye drop and gave me a coupon for it. Went to the pharmacy and the coupon was expired. They wouldn't take it so I called the doc office saying I needed a generic pink eye eyedrop. They gave me Tobramycin Ophthalmic solution. It says in the ingredients sodium sulfate and sulfuric acid. Can I take these drops? I'm highly allergic to sulfa medication. I swell up with....
  • Weird case of hives

    I get hives . I've been to allergy specialists who can not determine the source of the allergic reaction. The odd thing is I get the hives every other year only from April-June. This has been going on for 8 years. It's progressing. Before it would be little breakouts here and there now my face is starting to swell. My doctor prescribes me steroids which do not help. I take anti histamines and am tired of taking cold showers. I am afraid the next time I get them if the trend continues it will....

    Long lasting hives

    Do hives that last for weeks automatically mean it's chronic hives? I have done some reading about hives and it only mentions that if you have hives for weeks or even a few days that it could mean it's chronic. I have had hives for a few days now and I believe that the source was from using a tanning bed (which I also won't be using anymore) The hives do not seem to be going away as well and I am taking antihistamines that were prescribed by my doctor.

    Severe Itching With No Visible Signs On Skin

    For the past 3 months, I have been dealing with an insane and progressive itch. I had been prescribed a liquid cough syrup (hydrocodone) for bronchitis. Normally narcotic meds make my hands mildly itchy for several days once off of the meds. Initially, my palms and feet started to itch very badly and worse at night. I ended up taking Benadryl which helped for a day and then did not help anymore. I visited the doctor who put me on Prednisone. While on the meds, I did not have any itching. After completing....

    Multiple Issues and Multiple Symptoms: Rash included...

    Hi, 29 year old male. Last Sunday was placed on amox-clav 875-125 mg for a risk of infectious exposure at work. Three days later started to become diaphoretic, feeling of my skin burning, and sharp pains over my body in the afternoon. Felt great up until 3PM. Around 9PM that Wednesday had this shooting pain behind my patella. When I examined what was causing the pain there was a tick. Removing the tick did cause the diaphoresis to cease within an hour, but still extremely itchy. Developed a rash....
