    New organic food wrap contains hidden soy

    Hi, I come with a warning for those allergic to soy. A company called Etee is promoting an organic reusable food wrap that is 10% soy wax. They fail to mention in their promotions that it contains soy and I'm sure this will cause problems! They keep coming up in my FB feed and each time I enter comments about the soy content and they continue to ignore this. Maybe when someone has anaphylactic shock they'll wake up! Meanwhile, you have to go to the product detail page on their site to see....

    Can a person be allergic to Salt?

    I really think I am. I've asked doctors but they kinda dismiss it. When I put myself on a special diet with no salt EVERYTHING changed. I've also read that a lack of salt can trigger an allergy-type reaction. Has anybody heard ANYTHING like this?

    Am I having an allergic reaction to a different brand of medication

    I have been taking Fenofibric acid for several months and this time my pharmacy had a different brand in stock. I took my first dose of it last night and now I'm itching all over. Face, back, abdomen, and all 4 extremities. I took a 10mg prednisone I had left over from my last bout of pneumonia and I just now took 2 Benadryl but I'm itching soooo badly!! Can someone please help me out with what to do for the itching and rash? I called the pharmacy and they are trying to find my previous brand....

    Strange bug bites only on elbows, disappeared in the morning

    I woke up last night to EXTREME itching on BOTH of my elbows--nowhere else. After googling this last night, I came to the conclusion that it might be flea bites or bed bug bites. So I went and slept on my couch. As soon as I got to the couch, the itching greatly subsided and I could finally go to sleep. Then, I wake up this morning and the bug bites (or whatever they were) had completely DISAPPEARED. There was no redness, no bumps, no itching, and no sign of a bite whatsoever--just vanished into....

    Possible diagnosis

    I’m not a dr., but it makes me think of shingles. A good dermatologist shd be able to figure it out. It could also be some other type of non-genital herpes outbreak requiring an antiviral like valtrex. Best of luck!

    Very itchy bites or...

    I’m at a loss. I think they are bites but have no idea. Here are the stages of what I’m going thru..1. Red, blotchy, hard 1-3 inch areas (this time, my legs are the affected area). 2. Extreme itch (nothing alleviates it, NOTHING) and excruciating pain. 3. Blisters the size of a quarter or silver dollar that are very hard and raised about an inch high. 4. Extreme leakage. I have to change the gauze and dressings about 7-10 Times per day. 5. Scabbing 6. Scarring. I have tried EVERYTHING. Doctors just....

    Rash on face and possible causes

    I’ve had a rash on the side of my upper eye for the past two weeks but it was very small and didn’t spread, but today when I woke up it spread down my cheek more.. it’s not itchy and I have red cheeks already they are just small bumps, I don’t have it on the other side of my face either which makes me think it’s not an allergy? I did just move into college and have been stressed with school work I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. Any thoughts?

    Genital Rash

    Hi, i am a male and recently I have gotten myself a girlfriend. Now in the span of around 2-3 weeks we have had sexual intercourse several times a day and for quite a few days.

Now considering these are my first few times doing it I would like to know what these rashes are. Just as a heads up, i am not her first, and apparently im pretty good as i make....

    Allergic reaction to bug bites?

    Sorry if this isn't the right section to post on. The other day I woke up with 2 small sized very itchy bug bites on my foot. I didn't really think it was a big deal so I just disregarded it. The next day in the afternoon, at some point I noticed the back of my elbow was itching really bad, so I looked and there was another bug bite. It was different from the ones on my foot, it was really puffy and if you feel it, it feels hard it was also much larger. I woke up the next morning and when....
