    Chronic itching

    I have the exact same problem with severe chronic itching without skin rash, hives, etc. Over a year now, but recently more severe. Benadryl, hydroxizine, prednisone, zantac, and every topical there is, have been tried with no results. I'm at my wit's end! Nothing new in my environment at all! It's a deep, stinging itch that never stops. Done a lot of tests with no answers. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Two days ago she had a fever of 100.3, Tylenol knocks down the fever. Today she mentioned that sometimes during the day she has slight tingling in her finger tips. Internet searches indicate numerous side effects from Shingrix but....

    What could be causing these symptoms?

    Every single time I stay at my in-laws within a couple hours I get a migraine and if we stay the night I always get sick. I develop a wet productive cough, chest congestion sore throat, sinus pressure, stuffy runny nose and trouble breathing / wheezing. I have a history of asthma but whenever I stay there it flares up for both my 2 year old son and I. I'm worried is mold. I don't visibly see mold in their house but I am concerned because this literally happens every time we stay there. I'm....

    A question on Epipens, VitC, Glutathione, and the recent Sesame allergy death in the news

    Hi there everyone From a Facebook post: “1) Kid has a severe food allergy 2) Food at airport wasn't labeled properly 3) Passes out on airplane despite two Epi Pen injections 4) Dies before they get 22 miles across the English channel. Vit C would have saved her. See Marik et. al 2017. Irony is if she got to France they'd give her a NAC (precursor to glutathione) injection and save her life. #epiPensSaveLives?” This is regarding the BBC news story “Girl with allergy dies after Pret baguette....

    Can’t ID itchy red spot

    Hi there, I can’t tell what this is. It’s a single red dot that itches and eventually scabs over (as it heals possibly, I only have one in the stage of healing I THINK) I have about 4. One on the lower leg, one on the thigh, one on the forearm and maybe one on the face. Each raised spot is reddish with a lighter red circl around it. It somewhat reminds me of poison ivy which I’m incredible allergic to. But I’ve never seen it in single dots on me before. Again there are only four so far and are located....

    How often should you see your allergist?

    I am curious if your allergies are under control, should you still visit your DR yearly or just renew your meds?

    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?

    Allergy medicine

    Does anybody have a good suggestion on an allergy medicine that doesn't dry out your nose, and doesn't make you drowsy? Every allergy medicine I've tried makes me too drowsy. Too me being drowsy feels like accidentally taking Vicodin while drinking alcohol. When I take Mucinex for the runny nose that runs like a waterfall no matter who many time I blow my nose. I just itch my nose an I get a cut in my nose. So I can't use that either
