  • Severe Allergic reaction-unable to identify trigger

    For the last couple years, I've been having reactions-swelling of eye area, swelling near lip/jaw line/swelling on foot and/or swelling of whole or even 1/2 of tongue and even hives sometimes. I've seen 2 allergists, been tested for everything, kept track of my food intake, surroundings, activites, etc. for a couple of weeks and no one can figure out the cause. This started 2 days after having a hysterectomy, so I'm wondering if there's any relation between the reactions and timing....

    Abdominal Cramps after allergy shots

    I have been getting cluster allergy shots for about 2 months. Yesterday I was to get 2 sets of shots which was the same shots I've had in prior weeks just a stronger dose. About 5-10 mins after getting the first set of shots I started feeling some nausea, felt like I had to poop and was hot/sweating. After using the bathroom I ended up telling the nurse I didn't feel good. They took my blood pressure and my heart rate was low. I felt like I had to use the bathroom again and tried to go. I....

    Wisteria contact dermatitis

    My friend thinks he has contact dermatitis from handling wisteria. He has suffered from his malady in excess of 3 months, mostly on the back of his hands and fingers. He always has scabs because he digs very small seed like looking objects from the persistent sores. They almost look under a jewelers glass like small pieces of rice. His girlfriend dug a fibrous looking substance out of the back of his neck that was about a half centimeter in length and almost looked like it had roots. He has 2 questions....

    Systemic Uncontrollable Itching

    Hello! I am a 36-year-old female with multiple food allergies and a history of seasonal allergies and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Since roughly November, 2016, I started noticing that I would randomly become very itchy. The itching starts at maybe my foot/leg, ears or arms/hands and spread throughout the day to my torso, back and basically any other part of the body you can think of. If I take loratidine OTC 5 mg., this will calm the itching temporarily. Within 48 hours of taking the pill, the itching....
