Allergic rash to pollen

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic rash to pollen


Avatar f tn No one can figure out what these red patches are on my hands. They are identical on the inside of my palms. I have not taken any new medication, no new lotions, not been in contact with poison ivy. The only allergy I have is pollen and I have been outside a lot already this year, and sneezing/coughing a lot lately. I read online that these can happen when you are having an allergic reaction, but haven't seen anything about an allergic reaction to POLLEN.
Avatar n tn YES and possibly. I'm allergic to fragrance and here in Australia they have these lovely toilet papers with lovely scents.. I break out in a horrific rash that makes a diaper rash look mild. I'm also allergic to certain lubricants or spermicide in some condoms which causes painful itching, swelling and redness for a couple days. I have found that desitin, baby butt balm, etc for diaper rash really help alleviate these kind of reactions.
Avatar n tn Some individuals are allergic to the lubricant uses in some condoms and this can cause an allergic rash to appear on the skin of the penis. Do check if the spots are actually vesicles which have clear fluid in them. Avoidance of the irritant will cause the rash to fade in a few days. However, if the rash is causing pain and impedance to normal activities, you can use an over-the-counter ointment, a steroid preparation containing betamethasone and neomycin, to help it resolve.
Avatar f tn The rash could be due to contact dermatitis, that is exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, it can cause rash. If there is itchiness and watering of the eyes the eye symptoms can be due to an allergen. Allergens include pollen, mold, dust and pet dander. But to exactly pin point the pathology you will need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you an may ask for blood tests. If the need arises he may refer you to a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn I am just finding out that almonds have a relation to pollen allergies. If you are allergic to pollen, that coult be the problem. Honey nut cherrios have alomnds in it.
Avatar f tn ve had multiple allergy tests done in the past, and although i am highly allergic to dust, mold, pollen, cockroaches, I am not allergic to any type of food. Could it be possible that I might develop a food allergy at this point in my life? (Please note, I did not eat any spicy food or anything I don't normally eat). Also, is it possible that after several months of using petroleum jelly (and attaining great results) I am now allergic to the substance?
Avatar f tn I've been allergic to evergreens for decades. Terrible skin rash. And I can't drink gin or I'll feel awful the next day. It's flavored with juniper berries.
Avatar n tn You must get an allergy test done, either a skin ***** or RAST, to know what you are allergic to. Seasonal allergies are generally due to pollen or dust. Any cosmetic you apply on face or eye or even for your hair like shampoos or dyes too can cause allergies. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn ) and use it for the horrible flare-ups...and sometimes take it for a couple of days here and there...just to feel normal...and to be able to get things done. I absolutely treasure ...the good days. Good luck to all of you. And ...don't be afraid of steroids. Educate yourself about them...and use them judiciously...and you'll be ok...and thankful for the occasional, but very real.... relief!

Please help I need peace of mind..
Avatar n tn I know a lot of dogs are allergic to certain proteins in their food, so sometimes it helps to try a different food. Some are also allergic to pollen...even dust. And unlike people who often get watery eyes and sneezing, most allergies in dogs cause itchy skin or rashes. Maybe you could ask your doctor for a prescription food to venison. Also, for temporary relief, you could try an oatmeal bath.

Avatar f tn If there is itching, then it could be an allergic reaction. The rash could be due to contact dermatitis, that is exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, it can cause rash. It could also be due to fungal or bacterial infections. But to exactly pinpoint the pathology you will need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and may ask for blood tests. If the need arises he may refer you to a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn Fold up a cotton towel and use that for a pillow to see if it gets better. The allergic reaction to polyester accures many hours after contact. The tech term is Allergic contact dermatitis "ACD" And is defined as a delayed allergic reaction to an allergen. This is not like a pollen allergy. Symptoms are not same either. Doctors hate to diagnose people with this. I went to 15 skin specialists during my life and none knew what was wrong. I hit 40 and they got so severe that I knew then.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have a small reddish patch of tiny bumps on my skin right above my chest at my neckline. My mother says this patch of bumps appeared after I suffered from an allergic reaction to pollen where i was covered in a big rash as a child. Now 10+ years later this small circular patch of bumps is still there on my skin. Sometimes I get in the habit of itching it but it always heals in this same bumpy pattern.
Avatar n tn A virus may be the cause if there is associated fu like symptoms, joint pains, pain in swallowing and eye redness. Allergic reactions to pollen, food, and dust should also be looked into. Dermatitis and heat rash are also differentials. At this point, a complete medical history and physical examination are essential to get a diagnosis. If there is a strong family history of asthma and allergies, all the more that an initial consult is necessary.
Avatar n tn Can you tell me what some cross reaction allergies are connected to strawberries? Everything you mentioned here are foods I'm allergic to. I am allergic to birch pollen and latex myself. And, I must be allergic to mugwort, although I don't know what that is, because I am definitely allergic to celery, which feels like I'm swallowing glass shards. The birch pollen allergy being connected to the wheat allergy. I never knew that. But, I am definitely gluten-intolerant.
