    noncontagious rash and trouble breathing

    My fiance came home from work (pest control) a couple weeks ago with a rash forming (red bumpy rash, like mass amounts of bug bites or pimples, swollen). We figured it was an allergic reaction considering what he comes in contact with on a daily (bugs, chemicals, etc). It gradually got worse, even with applications of cortizone, benedryl, and even tried aloe vera gel. The rash itches on a torturous level. Not contagious because it would have spread to me by now. A few days ago, his breathing started....

    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?

    Bug Bites / Ringworm?

    Hello, About a week ago, I had what I believed to be bug bites starting to appear on my body, maybe 1 or 2 at a time. They were mainly on my chest, stomach, sides, and back, with only a couple on my thigh, a couple on my arms, and one on my neck. These bumps would just be an itchy spot, which I would try not to touch, and would start to slowly turn into a small welt that looked exactly like a mosquito bite over the course of an hour, but within maybe 6 hours or less would completely disappear, looking....

    Ear congestion

    I was sick for two months with sinusitis, otitis in both ears, bronchitis, which then turned into pneumonia. They all started at the same time in January and I was on two antibiotics, decongestants, and cough meds. My left ear is still congested. I have been doing decongestant, saline nose spray, and Flonase for all of March. What else can I do? I have to fly in two weeks. My PCP suggestion was Mucinex but isn’t that a cough medicine?

    Can Alcohol found in lotions soak into the bloodstream and affect the body?

    I have a serious allergy to Alcohol if I were to drink it. For example, I ended up in the hospital when drinking one Angry Orchard Rose. I was throwing up constantly for 2 days straight. Since I have this serious allergy, do I have to avoid all alcohol ingredients in lotions (or other items) when applying them topically? Do all alcohol ingredients affect me the same way? Or should I just avoid certain types in items I apply topically? Even if the alcohol is in the Inactive Ingredients list, do I....

    Butter intolerance

    Okay so I’m trying to get to the bottom of this and it is beyond annoying. On March 26,2007 I was diagnosed with osteomyelitis (staff infection) in my right ankle. I was given an immediate pick line(left arm)) for internal injections (saline, cytosine & heparin). I did not leave the hospital for about 2 weeks. Finally I came home. Crutches for 6 weeks, pick line for 6 months. A nurse would come to the house to clean/change the bandages around the pick line. (I also had ADHD and I have been on....
