    Itches no rash

    Please I need help for my itches. It feels like you are being poked with a pin but no rashes. This could go on for 7 days and then stops. It comes back again maybe months afterwards. One interesting feature is during this phase, once I sleep, it doesn't itch again but once awake, about 15 minutes later, the itching comes back. Can someone help?

    My nephew broke out after eating chuck-e-cheese pizza?????

    Hi my 5yr old nephew absolutely LOVES pizza... ALWAYS has. He chooses to eat that more than anything else . So we thought it was absolutely weird and we would have NEVER thought that it was the pizza... My sister & the kids went to a Birthday party at Chuck-e-Cheese that evening, (Remind you they ALL ate the pizza, all 4 of them ate the pizza, but ONLY my nephew broke out) so when they got home they noticed that he had broken out all over his body even behind his ears & all that. We thought....

    Horrible Itching Everywhere! Only Symptom?

    Okay, I’m desperate. Starting the new year, I started getting itchier and itchier. I thought maybe it was mold. No. Allergies? Not that I know of, but I know things can change. Kidneys? Perhaps, I’m on a round of antibiotics currently for an infection, cipro first (where I had a decrease in itching symptoms) but the culture showed it to be resistant to cipro so they put me on Bactrim instead and the itching is back. It’s not always present either! Feels like crawling, prickling, burning. I’ve sanitized....

    Seasonal Allergies and Sleeping Medication

    I am taking Quetiapine at a very low dosage for sleep. Because of this, I cannot take any OTC with decongestant qualities because it essentially cancels out the Quetiapine. What can I take to help me deal with the common symptoms of seasonal allergies while not affecting the affect of the Quetiapine for sleep?

    Vibratory urticaria

    Does anyone here have vibratory urticaria? My whole life, my skin has gotten crazy itchy and sometimes breaks out in hives, when ever there’s any kind of vibration. Itchy hands when I push a shopping cart, itchy legs when I run, itchy back/bottom when driving on a bumpy road. Doctors always told me it was just sentive skin, but I thought it had to be more than that. So I’ve been doing some research and came across vibratory urticaria, and I’m wondering if that’s the cause.

    severe allergies...too many meds

    I have had severe seasonal allergies since childhood. I am 21 now and they have gotten worse. I am currently on 5 different medications for my allergies that my pulmonologist put me on about a year ago. If I don't take all of them everyday its very frustrating and difficult. I am currently taking Claritin(loratadine 10mg), Allegra(fexofenadine hydrochloride 180mg), Flonase(fluticasone propionate 50mcg, one in each nose), and advair(one puff) in the morning. At night I take Monteluklast and Benadryl....

    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....

    Occasional Hives/Allergies??

    Hello! I have been experience swelling in my hands and mild, itchy hives that appear on my hands, feet, knees, and elbows. They dissapear either on thier own or after taking an antihistamine. I have started taking Claritin every day after visiting the doctor as well as applying a steroid cream when symptoms get bad. The doctor said it could possibly be an allergic reaction to tree pollen, but today I had my worst reaction and the tree pollen count was low. I am slightly underweight but very healthy....
