    One-time allergic reaction

    Something really strange recently happened. I'm a dog lover. Animal lover really, but dogs ard the only animal i'm not allergic to (or so i thought) so that's the only type of animal i can be around. I have a dog at home (for 9 years now) but since i'm studying away from home i don't see her much. So naturally i go 'awwww!!' Over every dog i see and praise myself lucky whenever i get to cuddle one. The other day i met a lovesick puppy (very loveable bulldog) on the bus....

    Scripts for Epipens

    I have a question i was hoping to get answered. I am not familar witb life threatening allergies as my family has never had this issue, however a more distant family member is said to. I know the epipens are an emergency medication just as my sons diastat is for his epilepsy. My sons emergency medication prescription was highly controlled by his doctor. Only one box (2 doses just like epipens) at a time with limited refills even at his worst of times. My question is; are epipens usually respected....

    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.

    Bug bite? Should I see a doctor?

    I was in a wooded area I must have got bitten by something. I thought it was just a mosquito bite and it only itches tht night but a few days later it was this huge wound that is still healing 2 weeks later. I thought it’ll heal but now I have 3 red bumps around it tht itch. Could they just be dry skin bumps or ingrown hairs? Or is there something wrong?

    Shingrix side effects

    Eighteen days ago my wife received her first Shingrix vaccine, the next day she was tired. Over the next two weeks she didn't feel well, experiencing muscle pain, joint pain and feeling somewhat nauseous. Some days she feels much better, then the symptoms reappear. 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....

    Started wellbutrin. Exhausted.

    I was on Lexapro 40mg for over 20 years, and changed (slowly) to Welbutrin 150mg. Since day 2, I have been exhausted, dizzy and now have ringing in ears. Could this be a reaction to the change, or is it more likely some other allergy or infection. Btw... My sinuses feel fine.

    ACNE

    I developed acne at age ten. Over the last 40 years I tried giving up all sorts of foods, but that never made any difference. Then I read some people might be allergic to the antibiotics used in cows, so I switched to nut milk and avoid cow cheese. That seemed to help somewhat. Then I recently heard about A1 allergy, so maybe that was it. I am extremely allergic to penicillin. A few months ago I started 24 hour fasts every Monday in order to calorie stress. I didn't expect that to have any noticeable....

    Alcohol allergy or intolerance?

    I am 24yo female and healthy with no allergies. Whenever I drink alcohol I feel very unwell. I am drinking more at the moment due to social events but if I have any more than two drinks I feel nauseous and weak and very tired. Last night I had 3 beers and a glass of wine, this is my limit and I was feeling drunk. My boyfriend had to put me to bed as I was feeling sick and so dizzy. I am so angry at myself for making myself feel so ill. The main problems I have with alcohol are the next day. It's....
