Common Questions and Answers about Allergy otc


Avatar n tn I was wondering if there is some type of OTC allergy medication I can give him to help him get past this outbreak. He normally weighs in at 14 pounds. TIA for any help you can provide us.
Avatar n tn Try an OTC Hyrocortisone cream ... have you been outside a lot it maybe allergens in the environment, or you could be allergic to a cream or makeup, soap you are using .
Avatar m tn Very often, a person with a food allergy has already been exposed to it previously. In other words, they have been sensitized to the food. The more the particular food is ingested the worse the allergy can become. If the rash is bothersome or should worsen you can always go to urgent care or the ER. Also, there are OTC antihistamines that you can look into for the itch.
Avatar n tn It is now over the counter!!!!! ((just became OTC 2-3 weeks ago!)) it does take a few days to build up in your system but, causes less drowsiness then beendryl would...if you need immediate reflied - try liquid benedyl and see if the hives subside...
Avatar m tn You can take OTC antihistaminics like benadryl or Claritin.You can also use nasal corticosteroid sprays like nasocort or flonase. Decongestants may also be helpful in reducing symptoms such as nasal congestion, but they should not be used for long periods.Steam inhalation can be used instead of nasal holding. Cromolyn sodium is a nasal spray (Nasalcrom) for treating hay fever. Eye drop versions of cromolyn sodium and antihistamines are available for itchy, bloodshot eyes.
Avatar n tn But now it is suggestive of, more of infection than/secondary to allergy. The most common organism responsible for foot infection is bacterial growth known as Botryomycosis. It is relatively uncommon disease. Discharge should be subjected to gram staining, microscopy and culture. This disease can be treated effectively by antibiotics against prescription. Meantime OTC pain killers will help to reduce inflammation as well as pain. Even histopathology of the tissue is important.
Avatar f tn I like Omnaris Nasal Allergy Spray, but it is available through prescription only. If you are looking for OTC allergy meds, Clariton has a good safe reputation, (the gerneric brand is fine) and the standard "good old fallback" is Benedryl, which is also safe and has been around a long long time. Good luck!
Avatar m tn Lung function tests could further help in evaluation. In the meantime take OTC acetaminophen, try to take warm oral fluids and do steam inhalations prior to your meals. This helps to loosen up and bring out the secretions. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn m in the Midwest and where my allergy medication (just take otc claritan) has held me steady in the past several years, not so this year. I'm itching and running like crazy. So, you breath in and get this sensation? Could be allergies but what about teeth issues? Any issues with your gums? Lots of nerves there. And what about your sinuses? Do you take any allergy medication?
1699550 tn?1320286617 i have astma it is allergy induced i take flovent and use a rescue inhaualer but my weezing just wont stop and i have a mucusey noisy cough what should i do what could it be
Avatar m tn First, I would want to rule out Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) Cut out/cut down on alcohol, tobacco, coffee, chocolate and peppermint. Wait at least 2 hours after having your evening meal and before going to bed. Over-the-counter medicines Prevacid taken WITH either Pepcid or Zantac will decrease the stomach acid causing the GERD symptoms. Sleeping with a wedge under your mattress so your chest is higher than your stomach may help. If you could stand to lose a few pounds, lose them.
2039791 tn?1329805342 Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar n tn as nothing else is wrong with me . major allergy attacks ,every morning I wake with them .
Avatar f tn I know how you feel.
Avatar n tn my sinuses constantly ache and I occasionally get these terrible ear aches that are really debilitating (extremely painful). i can feel the pressure draining and radiating in front of my ear down into my eustachian tube. the whole area around the ear is extremely tender to the touch and pressurized. i really believe it's allergy related, especially with living with a cat. what is the best promotion of faciliting the draining of fluid through my ear to avoid this/treat this?
Avatar f tn I've been to an eye dr and had an allergy where he prescribed eye drops for it. It cleared up the allergy but I still have some crustiness and grittiness on my eye lashes and some blurred vision. Is there any kind of OTC vitamin supplements that will help with this condition?
8927791 tn?1400652956 After some time i started to itching after that i have looked at my hand then i found its the allergy. I suddenly stop the working on my field and i do not know what to do next i just know that avoid the allergies substances as I have read in class 8 in my school time. In my area a medical shop is little far away. So I have decided to leave it no medicine needed situation. And now my question This will harm me or not?
6712392 tn?1393708678 When I went to the dr they gave me a list of medications we can take that are OTC I'll look for it and send it to you.
Avatar f tn she can take triaminic cold and allergy just fine but my problem now is it is unavailable indefinitely. I need something that is identical to the triaminic cold and allergy. anything on the market?
Avatar f tn when I was between 15 and 23 (around there anyway) I used OTC allergy medication frequently as most if not all of my friends had cats and I was suffering badly seasonally. By frequently i mean almost daily for up to a month at a time in the spring and summer. I remember vividly (as i was at my cousins wedding outside) I took some medication and apparantly forgot I took it and double dosed. I felt quite tired/weird dizzy though this wedding so I obviously overdosed.
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. It could be an allergic reaction. It is possible to develop allergic reaction to substances, to which we did not exhibit a reaction before. We can develop allergies to different things throughout our lifetimes as the allergy develops in response to a repeated stimulus. If you haven't undergone formal allergy testing, that might be beneficial. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you can take OTC antihistamines.
Avatar f tn After stopping the drops my lid started getting puffy again in the A M. I saw the eye Dr. in March for my final exam he said it was dry allergy eyes. I do have chronic allergies and dry eyes for years. At the end of Sept. I stated getting the puffiness on and off all day long, a discharge, tearing and redness plus the feeling that a area of the lid being stuck to the eye ball itself.
Avatar f tn Okay. Thank you!
