Yes they appear as you said in am then go and then can come later in the day. He is not bothered really by them and I am giving antihistamines, but I don't want to do this forever and would like to find out underlying cause. I don't think it is food. I suppose it bothers me because it is a sign of allergic reaction. He doesn't have breathing difficulties but sometimes gets a runny nose. He doesn't seem to have food allergies either so I just wondered what I should do.
But sometimes hives may be idiopathic. The standard treatment of hives is oral antihistaminics and topical steroids. Oral antihistaminics relieve itching and you can get them over the counter but some of them may cause drowsiness and moreover since your child is just 2 years old, hence it should be taken under a medical guidance. Topical steroids is available by prescription from a dermatologist.
I have Cold Urticaria, I get hives when I'm exposed to the sudden drop/change in temperature....(going from a warm environment to cold). I also break out when my cieling fan is on and it blows cool air. I went to an allergist who tested me for many things but she said I wasn't really allergic to anything other than bed bugs, mold and pollen. I thought "Who isn't", but she said most likely it's Idiopathic Cold Urticaria. Maybe you're having a smiliar reaction...
I didn't get out of the car, only to go in and out of the house. When I came back in, I had huge hives on my legs, tummy and neck (a new place). I took a hydroxyzine and felt better but hives still. I made an appointment with my allergy doctor and had that today. They have no idea what it is. They want to do labwork, chest xray, patch test and another skin test. Well, due to the steroids, no lab work for 2 weeks, no patch test or skin test for 4 weeks.
Human Benedryl is what your Lab needs right now....The Dose is 1mg. per lb. every 6-8 hrs. Don't miss a dose! You can go up to 2mg. per lb. if needed, but start with the 1 first.....Then we'll see if we can figure out what's causing the reaction... I've got to ask: Did this all start with the "Crappy"(And too expensive), food they're selling you for his hips????? Probably will take some flack on that statement........ Gotta run......I'll be back......
I started breaking out in Hives in my early 30's now in my late 30's I have been to allergist, dermatologist, and finally rheumatologist. The steriod packs only helped for a short time and the hives would start coming back earlier and earlier. My eyes, lips, fingers and knees will swell sometimes and I have even gotten hives underneath my feet. Although I tested positive for the rheumadoid factor I do not have it. But my cousin has the same problems.
They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. They are of two types:acute and chronic(when hives persist for more than 6 weeks).
I have the same condition. I have seen multiple doctors and had several blood tests and still no answers. It started nearly 3 years ago when I was 26 years old. I clipped my horses hooves and suddenly got a rash on my inner legs. I presumed it was an itchy heat rash. Days later I was covered from head to toe and my throat was closing shut. They said it was only hives, no big deal. The problem began when those "hives" NEVER went away!
I have a rash that is now all over my body. It started out looking like a heat rash on a small area of my arm, and soon it spread all over my arms. It is inflammed, bumpy, scaly and itchy. I went in and got a steroid shot which did nothing. I then went to my dermatologist and she gave me a steroid cream and announced it an allergy rash. Then the rash started to spread all over my torso and legs.
Hello, Such itchy welts which appear and disappear can be due to hives. Hives have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. They mostly occur in response to an allergy but can occur because of idiopathic reasons also. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.
Hello, These red bumps that are itchy and come and go sound like hives. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Wash it with fresh water and apply some calamine lotion on the bumps which helps in soothing the skin.
I did strongly agree that it was hives, because when i got in the sun (heat) red bumps spread everywhere. If i remember right i think you can get hives from scabies, or rather the saliva.
During the day I occassionally have tingling on the skin on my hands normally on my thumbs and palms, but never my feet. During the evening when i sit to relax in the livingroom my hands become blood red and burn with immense heat and are very itchy. I keep still for about 20 minutes not itching it and it will eventually subside to a bearable tingling. My feet itch occassionally but not everytime, when they do there is a red rash, but not raised. Sometimes I am woke in bed with it.
The deer fly carry Tularemia and boy can they bite just like the Stable fly. I note you have horses...... My daughters mare is due her foal in April we are very excited lol.
We went to look at 10 horses’ my partner bought yesterday, I fell in love with one filly! Funny, it was the 1 that he said is very nervous, scared of people. I wanna keep her! BUT…..I thought of you the whole time I was in the stall with her, being more careful as I can’t move as fast (from her hind end,lol) and how hard it must be for you to not be able to ride, do what you do with them. I realized how much I missed the smell of a barn! Going to PM you tonight when I get home.
It started with a need to scratch in the middle of my back, but over a few weeks worsened and became more generalized, culminating in me waking up in the night thinking someone had slipped a dead horses head in the bed. a la 'The Godfather' only to find that I had ripped up the inside of my left arm. This led me to take things more seriously.
when I first showered with my irritating itchy hands I would scratch my hands worse in the shower under the heat and then put my hands in cold cold water... the cold worked for a while but then the itch would come back... so I decided I am going to just go crazy and leave my hands under a steaming hot hot shower...sometimes I felt I wanted to burn my hands off....but NO.. I survived and my hands relaxed..its been over a week now and my hands are slowly beginning to relax..
The source is simply heat and age--your leg blood vessels getting irritated from the heat. It seems to occur in healthy, active people. The researchers suggest it should not be a health concern and recommend not getting allergy testing, etc. Pampering yourself after a good long walk by taking a cool bath, sitting with your feet up, or applying cool wet towels to the rash may help relieve discomfort. ref:http://walking.about.com/od/medhot/a/legrash.htm?nl=1 ref:http://en.wikipedia.
But, then I started breaking out in hives almost daily.. After consulting with several Dermatologists, I have finally found one who is giving me some answers. Multiple skin Biopsies have come back inconclusive, as Neoplasms of uncertain behavior. This means that they are not malignant now, but can become malignant in the future. Through blood & scratch tests, we found that I have developed environmental allergies, along with allergies to foods that I have been eating my entire life!
But that's not the most alarming part of Tramadol in my case. In my case the antidepressant that they tacked on to the cocktail is the thing that causes all the rough psychological and mental symptoms. It's a Two Fer One! I've been feeling like I was going crazy for a long time. And in addition to that; the scary suicidal ideation. The suicidal ideation vanished and returns ONLY if I get a flare up of withdrawal symptoms. That happens if I get over stressed.
Thousands of people are suffering with Brachioradial Pruritus, including myself, in my tenth year. It is the most maddening disease and I have learned of no cure. Ice is the ONLY thing to provide relief, and acupuncture has not been effective for me. I have tried all the expensive prescription and steroid creams to no avail. I am losing sleep, and my sanity, b/c it keeps me up all night. I am staying out of the sun, but every year, this persists until December or January.
Only relief is ice. It started 10 years ago (was living in mountains of Colorado--sunny, but little humidity) in the summer. It comes back every year around July/August and lasts thru December, disappearing just as suddenly as it returned. Does your itch do this as well? I am awake every single night with this, although it also occurs in the daytime now. It started on my left upper arm, but seems to expand each year.
I do know that my condition worsened recently after my best friend died suddenly in April. Within a week I noticed a marked increase in peeling and cracking and it hasn't gotten any better. My original outbreak with this came at the same time I was going through a divorce in 1982. Connections?
TINNITUS IN LEFT EAR AND PULSATILE TINNITUS IN RIGHT EAR 10. LATEST SYMPTOM-FEELINGS OF HEAT AND COLDNESS IN BOTH EXTREMITIES, BUT MOSTLY ON THE LEFT SIDE.
My therapist finally broke through to me recently and helped me realize that in order to get my life in balance I needed to address my pain issues and if that meant being on a PM program to have better quality of life then so be it. And that I needed to get over my anxiety of "being a PM patient". I finally went in a spilled my guts to my PCP, which was REALLY HARD. I told him about my daily pain that I was hiding. I told him everything through tears. He was so kind.
They also follow me to work,and I have them in my office too. Then when I go to another person's office, they follow me in there too. So essentially it's me they are after. There is no food or fruit anywhere,and I do not wear cologne. I have not done anything different from when they were not constantly around me. I am not sure why they are around me, but as you can see, it has become a problem. Does anyone have any ideas?
Hi, I am not sure who to direct this to. I too start falling asleep while driving. It really scares me! I have always even as a child found the car to be somewhat of a "comfort zone" for me in which I would fall asleep within minutes of being in the car. It seems as I have gotten older it has gotten worse. It's very strange because often times when I begin driving I am not tired at all.
If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax. Make sure you take in salt, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Take several breaks to drink sips (not gulps) of fluid as you jog around. Wear a hat to protect from the heat of the sun, and keep your head cool. If you breathe with your mouth open you may expect to dry out the bronchs and get a burning sensation in the chest as well.
) I use a topical pain reliving cream, a deep heat and still I am in pain. I even bought a product called Miracle Balls from Elaine Petrone who was a dancer and suffered from the same type of pain except in hers legs.You lay on the 4" semi-soft balls and release the fasha, which in turn helps the muscles work better. Although I find I can work longer periods of time with out pain, the pain at night is terrible. I finally turned to the internet and found this forum. What the heck is it?
I see that I am not alone in my misery. These fits occur any time of year for me and last about a day. No type of antihistimine or other allergy medicine makes any difference. My allergy specialist thinks the cause may be a virus. No one knows. Sometimes they occur every 10-12 days, other times I go a month or two. It is horrible.
