Allergic rash to pollen

Common Questions and Answers about Allergic rash to pollen


Avatar m tn Also, you may want to try avoiding foods that cross react with the pollen you are severely allergic to ?? Ask your Dr if that is ok to do .... it may help reduce the reactions you get being exposed if what you ingest isn't cross reacting too, especially during pollen season.
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Looks like your allergic responses are causing rash, Allergic Rhinitis & Allergic Conjunctivitis. Consult an allergy specialist. First he may do a blood IgE levels to see if they are raised. Next, he will do skin testing. This test is painless, in which a very small amount of certain allergens are pricked into the surface of your skin. If you have allergies, just a little swelling will occur where the allergen was introduced.
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 It may also affect mucous membranes, genitals, the scalp or nails. Hives is usually an allergic reaction to food or medicine. During an allergic reaction substances like histamine and other substances are released in the blood stream. Insect bites, medications, pollen all can trigger hives. Take antihistaminic for relief in symptoms. Consult a dermatologist and confirm the diagnosis. Do keep us posted. Take care and regards!

Avatar n tn Itchy localized rash can be due to allergic dermatitis, eczema, scabies, contact dermatitis, shingles, psoriasis, fungal infection like or Tinea. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral to a skin specialist. Take care!
Avatar n tn I used to be allergic to everything. When I was little I had to watch what I was around and what I ate. If I put a pickle to my mouth my lip would swell up and I would be covered head to toe in rashes, same with onion dip or food that had alot of salt in it. I couldn't mix alot of foods either. I was hospitablized for eating a pizza and drinking a pepsi with it. I couldn't go to the park or be around grass, plants or tress much because I would start iching, aching and have rashes over my body.
Avatar f tn Also, I'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 n tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! If as a child your skin was allergic to cold weather and rain then chances are that you suffer from cold urticaria. Many a times an allergy starts in reaction to heat or cold. A chemical in our body called histamine starts a reaction in response to cold stimuli, including a drastic drop in temperature, cold air, and cold water. However, rain water has many chemicals too that you can be allergic too. Avoidance is the best treatment.
Avatar n tn We had my son tested and found out all kinds of trees, etc. that he's allergic to. He also tested alergic to dogs and cats which surprised us because we had pets. Now we just have him keep the pets out of his room and he washes his hands after petting the cats. We also started him on the allergy shots and they work great. He's 19 now and seems to have his allergies under control pretty well. If he had ever gotten real bad with the allergic reactions like shortness of breath, etc.
Avatar n tn 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. It's a horrible texture to touch but it helps it heal so much faster!!
Avatar f tn Turns out, which you probably know, if one is born around animals, like I was, that is generally the last thing they are allergic to, even though they are allergic to what animals get on their bodies. I'm allergic to what other animals get on their bodies, but not to them. I'm also extremely allergic to hemp, with respiratory distress even. I'm also allergic to eggs, mold, pollen, mildew, dust, trees, grasses/plants (which hemp fits this category), ragweed, golden rod, alfalfa...
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, some people are allergic to many things in daily routine due to body hypersensitivity. As you are having rash, swelling, pimples due to use of lip balm avoid the use of lip balm as soon a possible to avoid further complication. If you are using it for moisturizing you have a good alternative which is safe to use. In such condition maintenance of adequate hydration of the skin is quite important.
Avatar n tn Now I have developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I have read that the medical community say it not possible. The last two night I have had a temperature of 101, that comes and goes.
Avatar f tn this morning he received Zithromax, Zyrtec and Atarax. I realized the rash may be a reaction to the antibiotic after I gave it to him. the pediatrician said he will call us back around 1 today to decide where to go from here and to stop the anitbiotic. Any insight anyone can give me is greatly appreciated. I am at the end of the rope and feel terrible for him, he can hardly see and keeps scratching his eyes.
Avatar f tn 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. Today it started spreading down to my wrist (as seen in the picture) Anyone out there know what this could be?
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 m tn I don't know if this is called a reaction or just elevated allergy and normal. Because my normal reaction to pollen is closed air ways where someone else sneezes. So for me would this fall under a reaction or just elevated allergy. It is confusing to me since there is no book I can read to get a straight answer. Some say just elevated allergy and not a reaction, then others say yes it is a reaction. The shots only contain environmental antigens. Thank you.
168348 tn?1379360675 My daughter who has severe pollen and env. allergies/asthma is reacting to the newly installed cedar mulch in our garden beds! So much so, that she couldn't sit outside yesterday due to itchiness and then developed hives! It's down for only 48 hrs so we are hoping it'll settle down and be ok once the dust stays put. This is awful .
Avatar f tn I have hay fever type allergies and have seen some references that acai may cause an allergic reaction in people allergic to pollen, but have never in the past experienced any type of allergic reaction to food or medication.
Avatar n tn It's like clockwork. At around that time every day, I can expect to be covered from head to toe in this rash. The thing is, nothing has changed as far as what I've eaten, the soap and laundry detergent. I have no idea what's going on. The dermatologist has no idea what it is, so he sent me to an allergist. The allergist did the skin test on me and it came back positive for everything. So he says he couldn't tell me until more testing was done.
Avatar n tn As Vitamin C rids the body of excess histamine it would be fair to surmise that people who have a continuing presence or increased levels of histamine are either not getting enough Vitamin C through their diet or supplementation or they are allergic to it and in many casese both are probable true. Interestingly, Mg is also needed to reduce histamine levels.
Avatar m tn I have had her allergy tested to see if she was allergic to any foods she has been eating and all foods came back negative. She was mildly allergic to dog, grass, mold, and dust. She is on an allergy decongestant because she was also waking up with swollen eyes. We recently found that we have some mold in our air ducts and we are having that taken care of, but could mold cause a skin rash? She does not seem bothered by the rash, but I just wonder what could be causing it. Thanks!!!

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 f tn I cooled the water temp down but that didn't help. I am allergic to the cold; I break out in hives. Am I allergic to the heat now too or the water? And if yes, then why is the rash only in those areas mentioned? I have pictures to post but I don't know how.
Avatar n tn You must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or RAST, to know what you are allergic to. It could also be mold allergy due to working in AC environment for long. Consult an allergy specialist. Hope this helps. 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!
612876 tn?1355518095 Seasonal itch in dogs is usually due to either fleas or pollen/grass allergies. I recommend strict monthly flea control to eliminate the flea possibility, but with the history, your dog likely has pollen/grass allergies.
Avatar n tn Well, antibiotics cannot be the cure for rash. In fact some antibiotics can aggravate a rash. At 34 months she could be allergic to some food item, or have urticaria or hives in response to allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or baby products.
