    Diagnosis angioedema and urticaria

    We have a bundler we use to wrap paper towel rolls. It hasn't ran in 7 years until in June this year 2019. We only run the bundler maybe twice a month. First time in contact there was no symptoms when handling the poly. Second time month later my shift starts at 7am 12hr shifts. At 7:30am my hands itched like crazy everywhere. I thought my dog got into poison ivy and touching him I got it. Washed my hands in cold water with soap constantly. 7pm went to pharmacy got $40 in poison Ivy medicines....

    Are you a doctor? Do you know much about liver injury or allergies? Want to shake up the day a little? I have a fun puzzle for you. :) Come down this rabbit-hole with me! Back in 2010 I started working in SE Asia, particularly Laos. Within 2 years (by 2012) I started getting mouth sores more often when eating citrus foods. So, I avoided them.

    Itching scalp

    I have intermittent burning itching all over my body and have for years. I have eczema that is generally well controlled with topical triamcinolone. Several weeks ago I developed an itchy scalp at the back of my head! At first I was terrified I had some infestation, so I treated myself for lice and scabies even though I have no idea how I would have contracted parasites like that! That didn't help...I have seen my primary care and a dermatologist twice...Prednisone helped some while I was on....

    Hives

    I have a ten year old that is suffering from chronic hives.  We have been to a specialist and they have performed gratuitous blood tests and charged us astronomically for them, but they have yet to come up with anything that could be a trigger.  They are medicating him beyond my liking with Ranitidine and Omeprazole.  They have told us to keep him on these indefinitely but I have a hard time medicating him every day without knowing the effects they can cause after long term use.  I also don’t like....

    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....
