    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?

    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....

    Year long itch- all over- no explanation.

    Hi. For about a year now, I've dealed with an intense, almost unbearable itch. It's constant. It doesn't stop no matter what I'm doing, whether I'm doing school, sleeping, or just relaxing. It's always there. There are no real signs of irritation other than my scratch marks. No bumps, no redness, no dry skin. I've tried everything that anyone can think of. I tried moisturizing, medicine that doctors have recommended me, medicine that dermatologists have recommended me....

    vasomotor rhinitis

    I have been diagnosed with vasomotor rhinitis for over 1 year and since then I have been using a beclomethasone dipropionate nasal spray(which is corticosteroids nasal spray). A friend of mine told me that corticosteroids can cause bone necrosis and kinda scared me. I've been looking for such information on google but I haven't managed to find anything related to such. Right now the spray works really well, and as long as i take my dose before bed, one spray each nostril I am symptom free....

    Can severe sinus drainage cause nausea?

    I know it sounds weird, but lately, my throat has had a lot of phlegm and my throat has been feeling really weird. At the same time, I'm getting nauseous everyday. I haven't figured out why I'm so nauseous. How do I get it to stop?

    My father has Small bubbles all over his back that looks like blisters filled with serum (not clear serum).

    NoteL I don't know what that is, been to general physician ans skin specialist, but i haven't come across the right term to explain the condition. So kindly ask additional questions, if necessary. My father has developed (since the past two weeks), small bubbles on his back that is slowly developing over his rest of the body. the bubble is filled with some serum (not a clear water serum, rather a pus). Its aching, scratching, and developing. Any pointers ?

    cellulitis of the ear

    I had/have cellulitis of the ear. This is the 4th time. I have on antibiotics for a week, a week of being good and then it comes back. This is the 4th time, the 4th time on 2 different and high dose antibodies. I have fever, high white blood count and vomiting. 3 different doctors can't figure out what to do. I can't take this much more. Any one have any idea what I can do to make this stop?

    Cellulitis

    I injured my right knee on Wednesday. Had a lot of pain and swelling Wednesday night. Went to ER Thursday and started antibiotics. It’s now Sunday and although it not worse it doesn’t seem any better. Also still had fever through Saturday night. Does anyone know how long it should take for the swelling to reduce and pain to go away?

    Unconventional seasonal allergy symptoms?

    My only symptom is random slight bouts of dizziness (more like my equilibrium is off for just a moment), and more recently headaches around my left eye. The dizziness began about 4 months ago, and the headaches have only been the past few weeks. I had an MRI done about 2 months ago, and there was absolutely nothing going on except for moderate to severe sinus inflammation in 5 of my sinuses (maxillary, ethmoid, and right frontal). Thinking it was a sinus infection, they prescribed me Augmentin, followed....

    Alcohol...

    Hello, This is a little embarrassing, and I didn't know quite where to put this, but here it goes... I'm 20, I've drunken Alcoholic drinks in the past but usually always in moderation until the past couple of months. I don't know if my body genuinely has a problem processing alcohol or if I am just a very, very big lightweight. I only weigh around 130 so it would not shock me. Around the end of last summer, I had around 6 lite beers over the span of a few hours and apparently I became....
