    Allergy shots with no symptoms

    For over a year, I've been taking allergy shots with no symptoms. I was told I was allergic to every single thing on my the skin test (all trees, molds, pet dander, etc., etc) but I have no symptoms other than a bit of mucus on my throat. I had an endoscopy. Nothing wrong. Since the shots aren't helping or making me feel better...since I cannot tell I have any allergies because there don't seem to be any of the regular symptoms others have (running nose, eyes, sneezing, etc), why am I....

    Itching but no rash or irritation..

    I've had this spot on my shoulder blade that has been itching in the same place for a few months now. There is no rash, no sign of anything in the spot where it is itching, but it itches like crazy! Should I be concerned, or is this rather common??

    What is the difference between Levocetirizine and Cetirizine?

    I have been taking levocetirizine and now with my new insurance it isn't covered. Actually they aren't covering any type of allergy medicine. I take it for nasal allergies and hives. I need to find something that works that will be more cost effective. I need to know what the main differences are between levocetirizine and cetirizine to help my make a decision. Please help!

    Molybdenum Supplement?

    I recently developed a chemical sensitivity to formaldehyde, and acetaldehyde when I moved into a house that was polluted with it (painful joints and soft tissue inflammation), I'm out now and feeling much better but I still have a bad reaction when I'm around the stuff. Someone recommended I take a molybdenum supplement to help rid the aldehyes from my body. But I've been told that if you've ever had gout you should not take molybdenum as it will make it worse. I do not believe I....

    Do they make non-drowsy Benadryl?

    I have pretty bad seasonal allergies and take Zyrtec regularly for them, which works great. However, if I have an allergic reaction Benadryl is the only thing that I've found helps me. Here's the problem...right now I'm having a reaction to something in my office. I don't know what it is as nothing here has really changed. I've tried a number of different allergy medications but Benadryl is the only thing that helped. Nothing else even helps a little. The thing is that Benadryl....

    Extreme testicle itching

    Hello, I used some dish cleaner to wash my testicles, which caused an allergy; dry skin, pimples and extreme itching. I thought the pubic hair was the problem, as it triggered most of the itching especially when I'm lying down. So I decided to shave it on the affected areas, and oh boy oh boy it was a huge mistake. I feel like I'm constantly being poked by needles down there, it's very very irritating, I can't sleep and I can't think straight. Thank you very much in advance!
