Avatar_n_tn After 10 years of wearing glasses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> my near-sightedness, I decided to give contact lenses a shot. I teach martial arts, and have found that glasses really get in way...not to mention hurt when you get hit in the face. The challenge is that I have bad allergies which affect me year-round. I'm allergic to all Evergreen Trees..which pollinate during the winter (and live in Washington State, the Evergreen State)and the typical moldspores/dustmites.
612551_tn?1450025775 Temaril-P is recommended for the relief of itching regardless of cause. Its usefulness has been demonstrated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the relief of itching and the reduction of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>inflammation</span> commonly associated with most skin disorders of dogs such as the eczema caused by internal disorders, otitis, and dermatitis (allergic, parasitic, pustular, and nonspecific). It often relieves pruritis which does not respond to other therapy.
Avatar_f_tn FDE or fixed drug eruption may fade slowly and so may take a long time to go away. Although they resolve spontaneously but an oral antihistamine (e.g., hydroxyzine) and a topical corticosteroid may be needed. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated. Please do not use any drug on your own as it may aggravate the condition and cause worsening of symptoms.
Avatar_n_tn for the last two years I have been suffering from chronic hives and a very itchy skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>inflammation</span> that is only quelled by taking an OTC antihistamine once a day. My dermatologist diagnosed me with eczema years ago and seems to be convinced that it's related to that, but the eczema has been in check for a few years now, with only a few very mild outbreaks a handful of times a year.
Avatar_n_tn He was treated with drops including predisone and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>inflammation</span> settled.Almost a year to the day his eyes flared up again, but we treated it quicker so it did not progress as before. This has recurred every year during spring/summer, lasts for several weeks, exacerbated by being in the sun, treated with prednisone (sparingly)and settles.
Avatar_n_tn I've been applying Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> two months and recently the edges of my upper lip started drying out and in 2 days my entire lip was swollen, red and burning and feeling stretchy, but its not chapped but feels extremely dry. It has happened to me twice before (had used Avon lip balm then) and i applied Smyle herbal gel and Vaseline and it worked. This time though it is not working. I've been applying Smyle gel and Himalaya lip balm to cure it.
Avatar_f_tn She thought it could be allergies, said to take drops.. but I don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> sure which ones. I am trying decongestant and antihistamine at bedtime in cased sinus is secretly the problem. I am worried ...and the eyes don't itch or water like they have in the past with allergies that I would take drops for.
Avatar_n_tn I recently (within the past 3 days) have developed a small ~2cm diameter bump/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>inflammation</span> on my penis. At first I thought it was a blood blister but after masturbating it raised up and only the "head" was a red hue. I am having itchy sensations around it. I have not had sex in two weeks and that leads me to believe that it is merely an irritation of some sort. Any help to ease my mind that it is nothing more serious would be hepful.
Avatar_f_tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the past 2-3 months I have had this constant all over body itch that when I scratch it turns red and puffs up sometimes will look like bumps and sometimes it will just be puffed up scratch lines and sometimes both will appear. Once I start scratching it I can't stop until my skin feels like its on fire but once I stop itching it will disappear in a couple hours with out a trace of it even being there. I have no clue what's wrong and would love for it to go away.

Avatar_n_tn Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and a fever reducer. Chlorpheniramine is an antihistamine (reduces <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>inflammation</span>, helps with drippy nose and eyes from allergies, etc) Coricidin is an over the counter OTC drug. The DSM-IV is system for measuring the risk of substance abuse or for assessing mental disorders. You may be thinking of classification of narcotics? or pregnancy drug classification? OTC drugs are not classified.
Avatar_n_tn I tried using some Antihistamine-Diphenhydramine HCI tablets, and although it seemed to help, I'm not sure if it was actually due to the tablets or to the general movement of the eye during the day. The last couple days I have used Bausch & Lomb's Gentamicin Sulfate Ophthalmic Solution USP 0.3%, at one drop 4 times per day. Again, I don't know if it helps the problem, but the drops provide a soothing and cooling sensation.

1485729_tn?1288736072 my little daffy has been on steroids <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> most of her 4 years. the reason being is she was inbred, and is so itchy and scratchy without. i cook her food daily .but is there something out there that could help me to help her, as i know it will ail her more as she gets older?
Avatar_n_tn Even after the antibiotic clears the infection, it is possible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>inflammation</span> to linger. However, inflammation of the sinuses could also be due to an allergy or chronic exposure to an irritant, such as the smoke from the Mexican fires. Drainage from the nose and sinuses that drips down the back of the throat is known as postnasal drip. This can fester sinusitis.
Avatar_f_tn Due to a recent oral sex encounter, I got tested <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> gonorrhea and chlamydia in the throat. Those swabs were done with the Aptima Combo 2 Assay and came back negative. I took azithromycin and rocephin injection as a precaution (before the swab results came back), and am currently taking Augmentin to get rid of the strep. I was feeling fine and healed until yesterday when my throat started to hurt again.
182493_tn?1348056515 There are exceptions, for those that I detox out-patient, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> those that are on other medications when they come in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> treatment…I’ll cover those medications in the following paragraphs. Personally, I urge all to consider in-house Detox for methadone…especially if going cold turkey. Although in my personal experience I’ve never seen any advantage in lowering the dose over time. Especially, if one is at 45 mg or less per day. Methadone Detox can normally be accomplished in 3-5 weeks.
Avatar_f_tn Ive had a rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 days now on my legs and arms and a little bit on my face. It will seem as if its going away and then it will flare back up. I thought it was heat at first because I had been outside in the sun the day it started. Im wondering now if it could be associated with an autoimmune issue. Ive had many autoimmune symptoms lately but the doctors are no help at figuring out whats going on with me.
Avatar_m_tn A relative of mine told me she has tried both Patanol and Visine A and that the Visine A works just as well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> her. It also works very well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me, but I'm concerned if it is safe for long term use. Patanol is rather expensive and so I'd just prefer to use otc drops. Also, is it safe to also use an otc natural tear solution if the antihistamine dries out the eyes? Thanks.
757137_tn?1347200053 If you have suggestions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> other anti-inflammatories, I would appreciate it. Again thank you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> your help.
Avatar_dr_m_tn Although they are nonsedating in theory, there are reported cases of drowsiness with all three. Benadryl is an older antihistamine that's very effective <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> allergies, except that many more people may get drowsy. If your nose is stuffy, then two options are nasal decongestant sprays (which you can only use for 2-3 days) or decongestant pills. Routine nasal saline irrigation can also help your breathing and sleep.
Avatar_n_tn It stopped for a while and reappeared again and it has been like this for 4 years, the only thing that helps take the edge off it is the antihistamine. I don't have to have scratched my skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> it to mark. My skin just starts prickling (like millions of tiny insects are crawling over it), it feels very prickly and almost like it's burning. What would be the reason for this?
192055_tn?1263559137 You should try steam inhalation, saline nasal drops and oral antihistamine medications <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> your complaints and see if it helps with the symptoms. You should see your doctor and get a clinical examination for a diagnosis and to evaluate if any investigations are required including blood tests, chest xray and CT scan of the sinuses. Are you allergic to any specific substances or have had allergic reactions in the past? Let us now about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.
Avatar_n_tn Ive had a red postule that is maybe half a centimeter in diameter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> three months now in my pubic area. I originally thought that it was just an ingrown hair but i could never fish out any hair, ive tried to find any hair and there is nothing there. Also, it fills up with pus. It hasn't really gotten any bigger and it is the only one that i have. It doesn't hurt too much unless it rubs against something hard or i pop it.
Avatar_n_tn First off I'm a 20 year old male. I lived in Florida <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 19 years and moved to Nebraska in June of 2007. In August, two months later, one morning I woke up with a stuffy nose. Now 16 weeks or 4 months later, its still here. It's always in just one nostril, never both. It's also rarely 100% stuffed. I can usually blow a little air through the most stuffy nostril.
Avatar_m_tn I had done mri year back and it showed infection in forehead and cyst on left side of face....i am taking nasacort and fexofenadine hcl <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> months and tried other antihistamine also, but the symtoms persist....i am a liver patient with conginetal hepatic fibrosis and 31 years....liver enzymes r normal....should i take antibotics if so which one and dosae and days? And what else can i do....
Avatar_f_tn I also have enlarged tonsils and have had tonsilitis over the ears. I often take antibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> these infections and they clear. That can average at least 3 or 4 times per year. In 2012 with our strange S CA weather this winter, I have had constant sinus congestion/swelling, post nasal drip, nose bleeds after trying a different prescription antihistamine spray and it seems saline rinses and daily Claritin offer no relief. I will also add..
Avatar_m_tn But these, they develop throughout the day, from red spots under the skin to red itchy bumps that stay <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> days until they start fading away. At first, i related them to stress, as I was under a lot of schoolwork, but then I went to a doctor who told me they are probably bug bites and gave me cortisone cream.
Avatar_n_tn If not he will be sending me to an ENT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> scoping and a CT scan. I am in the Tampa, FL area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> those who are asking.
