antihistamine

Avatar_f_tn She is presently waiting to get an appointment from an allergist but by the time that happens, the hives should be gone. She is trying benadryl cream (topical) and that seems to be working to some extent on the spots on her arms. With any luck, it will help the rest go away too. What is causing this problem besides the possibility of the Advil or Tylenol and what can she take for headaches instead?
Avatar_m_tn I have been on topical steroids for eczema for a long time now and I’m a 21 yr old male. I usually apply them to my face and some on my hands. Every night I do use the steroids, my anus and butt itch like crazy! I have narrowed it down to the steroids! Is this possible (maybe it’s in my bloodstream?). And if it is, what my anus? This is very weird, any help would be appreciated.
Avatar_m_tn It's like the skin is not as elastic and when the skin at the opening gets offset it rubs on my boxers and causes more irritation. Anyways could only five days use of this cream cause this and was I wrong to listen to my doctor and apply it there at the opening? Initially it was the skin inside the urthera that was red and irritated and the cream was to absorb into skin and treat it.
Avatar_n_tn I used duac cream for three nights on my skin and now it is like i have Papulopustular rosacea. Is that possible that it can give me that kind of rosacea after three uses? Please help.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, I was recently prescribed Duac Cream for a few pimples I had on my cheeks. There were barely any there to begin with but I was tired of having them regularly so I went to a dermatologist to see what he could do. He gave me duac cream to put on the area and after three nights of using it my face has broken out in what looks to be Papulopustular rosacea. Except only the tiny tiny red bumps type which feels rough,like sand paper.
Avatar_n_tn You can give her some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. Also apply some mild topical steroid cream. If the symptoms are severe then she may need oral steroids. Please consult a dermatologist urgently then. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

Avatar_n_tn After my husband showers under hot water he develops a rash on his neck which he treats with Vaseline moisturizer (he's doesn't really care about what he puts on as long as some kind of lotion is on it- typical guy) . I've noticed it stays dry, red and flaky. Any suggestions on any topical cream he can use? I'd appreciate some help! Thank you.
Avatar_n_tn Itchy skin can be a sign of a condition such as allergic contact dermatitis for which an oral antihistamine and topical steriod cream is indicated. If a rash is accompanied by swelling of the tongue or fingers or difficulty breathing seek medical attention, allergies can be dangerous. If you have put yourself at risk of contracting HIV abstain from sexual activity and sharing needles and get tested quickly. Early detection and treatment of the virus will greatly improve your future health.
Avatar_n_tn Also apply some mild topical steroid cream. If the symptoms are severe then you may need oral steroids. Please consult a dermatologist then. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, Sudden swollen itchy feet can be due to allergic reaction. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton socks. You should choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes and use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding. Please take a second opinion from a dermatologist if the symptoms persist.
Avatar_f_tn Hi, This could be an acne, pimple or folliculitis. A topical antibiotic cream, mupirocin (Bactroban®), has been effective at reducing bacterial colonization in the nostrils. It is applied twice daily for a week and is repeated every 6 months. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene .
Avatar_n_tn Physiological cleanser by La Roche-Posay is excellent and truly hypo-allergenic. Applying Urgent Relief Cream by Clinique will also help. Taking an antihistamine tablet such as Piriton (available without prescription, always read the label) will relieve symptoms of allergic contact dermatitis such as itching and redness. If you can't tolerate topical meds ask your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline 250mg twice daily.
Avatar_n_tn You can also take a cold shower or take Ibuprofen to help reduce the swelling of the welts caused by mosquito bites. Continued treatment for particularly bad mosquito bites is usually done with a topical antihistamine cream like Benadryl Itch Stopping Cream. It should not be applied not more than 4 times a day or used more than a week. However, if symptoms persists and you experience difficulty of breathing, it would be best to see your doctor for proper evaluation and management.
Avatar_f_tn my second time to a ENT specialist. I've tried antibiotics, various anti fungal drops, topical cream, steroids, & antihistamine. My ear no longer drains fluid & is quite dry. I'm a 17 year old girl and I've been taking hydrocodone three times a day the past two days for the unbearable pain, I'm losing a lot of hope. Could there be a reason this infection keeps reoccurring? And is there anything I can do to stop inflamation, relieve pressure, ect?
Avatar_n_tn Individuals who are predisposed to folliculitis should be extremely careful about personal hygiene. Application of antiseptic washes may help prevent recurrences. A topical antibiotic cream, mupirocin (Bactroban®), has been effective at reducing bacterial colonization in the nostrils. It is applied twice daily for a week and is repeated every 6 months. There are several treatment options available for acne - topical application creams, oral medications, laser treatment etc.
Avatar_f_tn It is very common to be itchy while using any opiates. Any antihistamine should help you and if you have specific areas, a over the counter topical cream (hydrocortisone) will help too.
Avatar_f_tn The doctor gave me a cream called fluocinonide. It got better but didn't go away completely so I went back. He said then it could be a yeast infection so he told me to use an over the counter anti fungus cream which litterally burned my underarms so badly I couldn't lower my arm for a couple of days. I then just washed with an anti bacterial soap daily and it nearly cleared up but still not completely.
Avatar_f_tn You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can also be used. Your mother should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist as topical and oral steroids may be needed. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar_f_tn You can also take an antihistamine like Benadryl to reduce itching until topical treatments take effect. In case the symptoms persist then antifungals may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar_n_tn I have the exact same thing! I take Aerius (antihistamine) and use Taro-Clobetasol (a topical corticosterooid cream) and it clears it up within a few days! Hope this helps!
Avatar_n_tn I have tried several different creams, (clotramizole, topical steroids, and some others) it is always worse in the evening time and no matter what I put on it, it helps the itch (even aquaphor helps the itch!!) however if I dont use anything the itch gets pretty bad. Any help is appreciated.

Avatar_n_tn Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day.You can also use a topical cortisone (steroid) cream or ointment like dermacort(hydrocortisone). Adding a humidifier to the central heating system of your home or using a humidifier also helps.

Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
