    Bug Bites / Ringworm?

    Hello, About a week ago, I had what I believed to be bug bites starting to appear on my body, maybe 1 or 2 at a time. They were mainly on my chest, stomach, sides, and back, with only a couple on my thigh, a couple on my arms, and one on my neck. These bumps would just be an itchy spot, which I would try not to touch, and would start to slowly turn into a small welt that looked exactly like a mosquito bite over the course of an hour, but within maybe 6 hours or less would completely disappear, looking....

    Ear congestion

    I was sick for two months with sinusitis, otitis in both ears, bronchitis, which then turned into pneumonia. They all started at the same time in January and I was on two antibiotics, decongestants, and cough meds. My left ear is still congested. I have been doing decongestant, saline nose spray, and Flonase for all of March. What else can I do? I have to fly in two weeks. My PCP suggestion was Mucinex but isn’t that a cough medicine?

    Can Alcohol found in lotions soak into the bloodstream and affect the body?

    I have a serious allergy to Alcohol if I were to drink it. For example, I ended up in the hospital when drinking one Angry Orchard Rose. I was throwing up constantly for 2 days straight. Since I have this serious allergy, do I have to avoid all alcohol ingredients in lotions (or other items) when applying them topically? Do all alcohol ingredients affect me the same way? Or should I just avoid certain types in items I apply topically? Even if the alcohol is in the Inactive Ingredients list, do I....

    Butter intolerance

    Okay so I’m trying to get to the bottom of this and it is beyond annoying. On March 26,2007 I was diagnosed with osteomyelitis (staff infection) in my right ankle. I was given an immediate pick line(left arm)) for internal injections (saline, cytosine & heparin). I did not leave the hospital for about 2 weeks. Finally I came home. Crutches for 6 weeks, pick line for 6 months. A nurse would come to the house to clean/change the bandages around the pick line. (I also had ADHD and I have been on....

    I am allergic to fish oil pills, but have no seafood allergies...?

    When I was around 8 years old, I began taking fish oil pills. I started itching heavily all over my body and subsequently quit taking the pills, soon after which the itching stopped. Years later at 20 years old, I decided to try them again. This time, I developed hives all over my body, trouble breathing, and constricted airways. Needless to say, my reaction has become anaphylactic. My question is if anyone else has experienced this issue? I have done what seems like endless research only to find....

    Burning sensation on neck with no visible redness. Allergic Reaction?

    I have a rather large skin abscess on my neck from an ingrown hair or debris after shaving. It appears that it is on its way to healing well as its not as huge and firm as before. I also believe it has already drained as their is a huge crater hole left behind. Anyways, I was taking Amoxicillin Clavulanate 875/125, and shortly after taking it i would develop a pretty bad fever. It would seem to come in waves. It helped with my infected abscess as it visibly looks much better. However, the area around....
