antihistamine

The other measures you can take to help itch are to apply an OTC lotion like Sarna, as needed for itch, and to take an antihistamine like Benadryl 25 mg or chlortrimeton 4 mg (both also OTC.) Antibacterial shampoos arent necessary. In egeneral, I agree with your dermatologist about folliculitis. If your symptoms persist for more than another 2-3 weeks, I'd get back to him, though. Best. Dr.
Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema.
Temaril-P is recommended for the relief of itching regardless of cause. Its usefulness has been demonstrated for the relief of itching and the reduction of inflammation 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.
Thanks to a thread about itchy arms, I think I have found something that will stop itching or at least control it somewhat - Benadryl Spray - Extra Strength Itch Relief. My rash is on my behind and although no one has diagnosed what it is, at least the Benadryl allows me to handle the intense itching. Thanks to everyone who posted about itching as I would never have thought to use the Benadryl on another area. For the record this is what the rash looks like - anyone have an idea what it is?

that's why I noticed it was so dry. The only medication she takes is for her thyroid, which she has taken for many years. She is mentally alert but she cannot hear at all (due to age) and she can still walk but uses a wheelchair also. She doesn't take vitamins or food supplements. Help, please.

I am a 22 year old female and have been experiencing my particular skin problem for about 3 years now. The skin problem began being very ithcy and red. It has progressed into bumpy, ithcy, highly sensitive skin. The problem area is my neck and chest. The itchyness is mainly around my neck and upper chest, around my clavical. The area is very very sensitive to heat and even the water pressure in the shower.

I have been suffering with EXTREMELY itchy skin for 11 months. my skin is NOT dry. A dermatologist gave me cortisone cream but it did not help. The itching is all over my body and i scratch constantly causing redness and pain and little relief. I now also have welts. Even in areas I have not scratched. This itching is EXTREME. Please help.It is affecting my daily life.
If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Avoid scratching to prevent secondary bacterial infection. Antihistamine medications may also help provide symptomatic relief. Take care and do keep us posted.
Once I got back to the car I used ice from the cooler on the area and it went away, itch and rash. Now I would like to know what happened, I'd hate for it to happen again. I was sweaty of course, though it was not a new deodorant actually one I've used for years, nor a new detergent. It was a relatively new bra that had been washed but not all cotton. Thank you for your input, this really put a damper on an otherwise great hike!
I have had this groin itch for awhile, trying jock itch creams. But it does not go away after amonth. I read that somebody treated theirs succesfully by going to public pool. That seemed weird but they said sitting in the pol for awhile cured it So I am trying clorox wipes that come in a pop up container. A few times a day on my junk. These are the kind you supposd to use on counters not people, but... well it's been two days and it seems to help (a lot) .

This got me about 3 hours of sleep per application. Also, ask your doc for a systemic antihistamine, like hydroxzine, it helped me a lot.
Has anyone had this problem? If so, please let me know how it has turned out for you and maybe how you resolved it! About a month ago, I took a motion sickness pill because I was feeling nauseous (for hormone-related reasons, I think). I had taken that same pill once before, even though it was expired by 5 years it worked well enough the first time. When I woke up I felt horribly weak, disoriented and had a metallic taste in my mouth...
I can afford drugs no problem as I am in a management position with the same company for 20 years. I had no pain...Just an itch to get high and higher and higher. Lack of inventory has put me in the middle of detox by default and it *****!....It is good to read all of your thought on this matter and it really helps knowing you arent the only one.Heres the thing: I will get the call eventually and the supply will come back in.....Thats the hardest part....Saying no...Im good right now...
In the day I use topical prescription Fluticasone Propionate Cream for the bad spots and then put regular over the counter 1% Hydrocortisone cream every where else except face. Benedryl Gel on the cheeks helps. Keep everything away from the eyes. The Atarax helps from the inside out so the itchy eyes are soothed with the medication. All the moisturizing OH mentions above in her post also a must and really helps. It's just constant maintenance any way you can.
For three years now I've been dealing with a very bothersome anal itch. It doesn't bother me during the day. Only in the evening. It wakes me up every night approx 15 minutes to a 1/2 hour after falling asleep. I've tried all the remedies I can find. Various cream,s sprays, natural ointments, zinc oxide etc. I've tried cold application, washing before bed with phisoex. It's not pinworm. I've taken this medication with no affect.

Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be hives,sweat dermatitis or fungal infections. The mainstay of treatment is antihistamine which may be necessary for prolonged periods .You can take non-sedating antihistamines such as Cetirizine or Loratadine to get symptom relief. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms. Application of calamine lotion will help in soothing the skin.
, have tried antihistamine but double dose didn't work, have topical itch creams that give no relief, which does worry me now that I have found these posts. Good to find another uk suffer, although the other posts are useful, always a prob to find certain medications etc that are available in other countries, would be interested to hear how you progress.
After washing with soap or after a bath rub Nappy cream containing zinc oxide all over the area. You'll find you get some relief on the first night. Wash and reapply every day for a week and you should be OK. Then if it recurs do the application of zinc oxide cream straight away and the bout of inching will be minimised. Post back on this thread if it works please.
I find myself pulling up my knees to my stomach and trying to think pleasant thoughts to get my mind off of the terrible gross feeling that accompany the itch. I itch on my legs especially; both upper and lower, sometimes my back and arms will itch and other parts of my body. I tried redirecting my thoughts, I try rubbing my hands over the area really fast to create a level of heat that overshadows the itch.
if you take a medication that is specifically for one type of issue and not others, and recieve relief....well simple process of elimination. i think it is an allergy.
my swelling won't go down for a couple weeks without it. we just got back yesterday and for the first time in tropical sun for the past year i didn't have a reaction. i am convinced that it has been the different sunscreens i've been using and relieved that it is absolutely not food, sun, plankton in the ocean or anything else the doctors can suggest. i used hawaiin tropics dark tanning lotion the whole time b/c i'd tested it before i left and had no problems.
