Common Questions and Answers about Allegra for itchy skin


Avatar n tn I am 34 years old and have been putting up extremely itchy skin for a year and half.When I scratch I am causing little bumps on my skin to scab over and they don't seem to heal. I have this rash look all over my body. I have been going to my dermatologist consistently and have been treated for Scabies, allergies.She has given me steroid creams, antihistimine creams, atarax, allegra none of which has seemed to work.
Avatar f tn Just a thought, I have PBC and AIH so I can suffer terribly from itchy skin. It is that bad that you want to rip the skin off. Now my meds have sorted I am ok for now but I did have something general at the start which was helpful. Questran. This product is for itchy scalp conditions, scalp meaning the skin all over the body. Also , a general vitamin E6 cream to put back some of the essentials on to the skin helps. Try anything, its worth it as not every remedy suits every person.
7639611 tn?1392880861 )The past few weeks, I've been experiencing itchy red patches of skin that look like a rash on my arms, hands, and legs. The skin on my forehead is red, irritated, dry and flaky, though not quite as itchy. The skin all around my eyes is also red, irritated, dry and flaky. Oh, and my nipples are cracking. I use a humidifier, and I've tried applying Allegra cream, Vaseline, and Neosporin. I've also been taking Allegra orally. I wash my sheets, vacuum, and keep my living environment clean.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 21 years old seemingly healthy 125 pounds. I went to the dr when I noticed an itchy rash on my stomach and arms. The dr said she didn't know what it was caused by. But she said it looked like a strep rash. I was perfectly fine otherwise and didn't have strep. She told me to use hydrocortisone and if it's not gone in a week to come in. It went away. I'm sort of a worry wort so I had a full std screening (in the back of my mind I thought I had HIV or syphillis.
882555 tn?1240596244 For some time now, I have been having itchy legs..whether I shave or wait a few days. It does not matter..I have used soap & shaving gel...I use Venus razor which i think is one of the best around. I have it real bad at night when i go to legs are a mess right now... Do you have any suggestion as to why? or what i can do different?
Avatar m tn When I wake up, the itching is temporarily gone but the spots are still visible. No changes to diet or soaps/detergents. I went to a doctor last year for itchy/red/discoloring on my buttocks but they assumed it was some sort of jock itch. It never really went away although I didn't exactly follow the treatment 100%. Any help will be highly appreciated!
Avatar n tn Does your skin itch and blister or break out if you don't take your allegra for 1 to 3 days? Do scratches stay for long periods of time or leave scars? Have your doctor do the skin writing disease test. I always wondered why I could remove everything from my diet and didnt use perfumes and still get acne and nothing took it away. That was why. My allergist and dermatologist told me to go 3 days without allergy med, then when I went in I was itchy and she saw my scars and recognised what I had.
Avatar n tn I forgot to mention that while I was on Allegra my doctor also prescribed hydroxyzine for nighttime. It didn't work, my allergist told me to take it during the day and I did for 3 weeks but nothing happened either. I stopped taking it because all it did was make me drowsy and did not help my symptoms at all.
Avatar n tn Am taking one Allegra in the AM and one Zrytec at night for about 3 days. The itchy rashes are a big annoyance. I have been allergy tested for food and have no food allegies. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Burning skin... (I've had itchy burning hands and soles of my feet) First, I'd spend the money on CeraVe' Soap, it's at the drug store, for your hands and the shower... Also, a 24 hour antihistamine, Allegra is the best then Zyrtec then Clariton, take any of the 3 that you can tolerate. Also, stay out of the heat, bright light bulbs, cover your self with a light shirt and pants.... a hat but you do not need to get heated like sweating....
Avatar n tn for example diprobase cream which is good for raw red skin, light liquid parafin which is good for irritant and dry skin. also ask for oilatum bath addictive which can be used for the face and body which locks in moisture. 9.) most important, dont touch the skin or itch it, try and aviod changing temperature or humidity rapidly. 10.) use natural moisturisers that can be brought over the counter the best one is Aveeno cream.
Avatar n tn My viral load, always very low, in the 200,000 range went to the multi-million range. I now test positive for cryoglobulin, which may be the cause of my skin disorder. My skin problem does not manifest as rash or scaly patches. Instead, I get round sores that itch - they look more like mosquitoe bites. I have tried many of the creams but I want to discover the source of the problem so I am not just treating the symptom. Thanks again for the helpful feedback.
Avatar m tn A couple of years ago, I had a terrible sore throat for a couple of days, then rash started all over my body, very itchy, like needles poking on your skin, skin felt warm and after about a week, my whole body started peeling. Finally went to the doctor and confirmed I had strep throat. A year and a half later, I had a mild sore throat for a day, and the rash, itch/peeling cycle started the next day.
Avatar f tn I rarely put lotion on my skin at all, because my skin is so sensitive to most chemicals, and feels the need to breathe, and not be covered~
Avatar m tn So in the mean time my doctor prescribed me Allegra for the day and told me to take Atarax at night. So far I haven't noticed any reactions to Atarax or bad symptoms though my eyes seem to dry out a little so I keep eye drops on me. I have noticed that my symptoms of itching and the bug crawling on my skin sensation are improving. I never though about me having an reaction to prolonged exposure of Permethrin. Heh...
149918 tn?1208132344 (1)STOP the VX and start getting it out of your system... ------------------------------------------------------ Mre, Sorry you're having some skin problems. I certainly can relate and went through skin hell for close to 54 weeks. I'm a little unclear on if you finished your 12 weeks of what you presume to be Vertex, as my understanding is that the trial is still blinded and no one knows if they're taking Vertex or not. What did the trial doctor or nurse say?
Avatar n tn I have identical symptoms and mine have been re-occurring for many years. Right now foot (1) has been red, itchy, and first two toes swollen, also hot to the touch only on the bottom of foot. Drs. seen to think no problem and prescribes NSAID's and they do work, but only if I take at least 800 mil. at each dosage(usually a 800 motrin) twice a day. Has been the only relief, but pain and other symptoms always come back, sometimes months later,but always it does re-occur.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing itchy palms and peeling skin,particularly on my right hand.I have tiny blisters under the skin.I think it looks like contact dermatitas.I know that I have a nickel allergy and this had led me into investigating into what I have been in contact with.The only thing I can think of is my ipod.Does this ring any bells with anyone?May be you have an allergy to a metal in your ipod or mobile phone?
Avatar n tn been taking some over the counter clariton, and some of an old prescription i have for allegra. This is really driving me crazy and i dont have insurance so im not sure what to do about it extra info- may or may not be related Itchy(no rash) Im a big guy 350 lb.
Avatar f tn The grainy part feels good because it acts as a natural exfoliant, but there are numerous health benefits for your skin that you can read about if you Google oatmeal health benefits for skin etc.So I recommend taking a hot shower (this will make the itch a little worse, almost like its burning the rash however I always feel better once I get out of the shower and "cool off" in front of a fan.
288415 tn?1231634102 This is a petrolatum skin protectant which helps with the flaking and heals the skin. I have been using both for the past month and everything has cleared up!!! Yeah.... Both items together cost about $20. It's the best $$ I've ever spent.......
Avatar m tn However possibility of a viral rash is always there. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime and inform your doctor regarding the itchy hives as the medication may need to be changed. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.
Avatar f tn For me it happens when i haven't been to gym for a few weeks. its like my body 'forgets' how to sweat. i get really itchy but then if i keep going as soon as i start sweating the itch goes thats why i think its worse for people in cold weather cos the body takes longer to sweat!
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms it is clear that the dry itchy skin that you have can be due to eczema or atopic dermatitis after coming in contact with an allergen. What is the allergen needs to be found out. It is usually not the alcohol that produces the allergic reaction to the wine or beer. The other ingredients in the alcohol, such as yeast, sulfur dioxide, and additives are often the culprits.
Avatar f tn Wow, ladies, I'm glad to have found this thread, too. I'm 37 and have dealt with this itchy arm thing for at least 7-8 years. Of note---my oldest son is about to turn 8 this November. Not sure if there's a correlation. Also, I initially thought mine was seasonal, too, but I'm not sure it is. I used to live in Virginia and now live in San Diego...and it's bothered me year-round in both locations.
