Common Questions and Answers about Allergy testing zyrtec


Avatar n tn I have done allergy testing and they had decided that im not allergic to much else but some foods ( such as nuts and apples) which i stay away from so they decided that allergy shots were not necessary.
7945295 tn?1397658820 Do any of you lady's take zyrtec for allergies? I don't like taking anything period but my allergies are sever. I claritan with my son but I feel like zyrtec works better. I was told its just as safe but figured I'd see what you lady's take.
Avatar m tn If these are both same as zyrtec, I've been prescribed zyrtec for allergies on a daily basis
Avatar f tn Thank you, I was forced to cut it due to allergy testing and I could not take any antihistamines. My dr prescribed me prednisone which did not help much, but I am getting through it! Icing the itchy spots has helped get me through the worst of it. One week later and it is getting less severe but I'm still having bouts of itching... I hope it doesn't last 45 days!! It does help to know you went through a similar experience and how long it lasted for you...
Avatar f tn Check with the doctor but he will more than likely firmly recommend Claritin and warn against Benadryl. keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I've been on Claritin/Zyrtec my whole pregnancy. I know Claritin is approved, I believe Zyrtec is fine too.
Avatar f tn HORRIBLE ALLERGIES! it depends what works for you. My doctor has gave me the okay on zyrtec, benedryl, and claritin. Claritin doesn't work for me so I take a zyrtec EVERYDAY morning, than about 6 at night when it start wearing off I have to take a benedryl. Hope this helps. & hope you feel better.
Avatar f tn Anybody suffering with skin allergy during pregnancy?? Its driving me mad and no idea whats its from!! I have red spots covering my ribs and back ... yuk!!
Avatar m tn You may also want to consider taking one of the over the counter allergy meds such as Zyrtec or Benadryl. HOWEVER, do not take ANYTHING without checking with your doctor first, especially if you are already on other medication or under a doctor's care for anything. You sure don't want to end up with an interaction between meds. Best of luck - I know how it is with cat allergies - mine are HORRIBLE!
Avatar m tn Never was able to find a cause but my doctor had be start taking an everyday allergy medication like Zyrtec or Claritin. Once I started that the hives went away and haven't came back. I would first see if you can find a common irritant you can eliminate. If not try taking Zyrtec or Claritin.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Allergic reactions can show a waxing and waning phenomenon. They can improve or worsen with time. Also it is possible to develop new allergies, you could develop new allergic reactions to food or other substances. You will only have to closely monitor. If you haven't undergone formal allergy testing, that might be beneficial. Under a doctor's supervision, foods that have caused allergies in the past can sometimes be added slowly back into the diet.
Avatar f tn Can I take allergy medications?
503607 tn?1275671579 That was a bit weird I think. There must be something you can use? I guess it depends on the arrhythmia. Some of the allergy meds (especially the old, non-selective ones such as terfenadine and hydroxyzine) can prolong heart repolarization (QT time) and cannot/should not be used with antiarrhythmic drugs or certain antibiotic drugs, or if someone has prolonged QT time on EKG. The sedative allergy meds are most likely to cause tachycardia (I think.. my knowledge about this is a bit low..
Avatar f tn Hey ladies anyone of you on allergy medication. I ask because today getting my 5 year old ready for school I made a mistake of taking his allergy medication (singular 4 mg ) insted of my prenatl pill. know I'm waiting patiently on my ob to call me back...
Avatar f tn he has an allergy related skin condition (Urticaria Pigmentosa), seasonal allergies, and food allergies (tree nuts only). He takes the adult dosage of Zyrtec daily and uses Flonase to keep some of the allergies under control. Because of all of these allergies, I assumed the tongue issue would also be allergy related (the allergy specialist disagrees though). We have also tried Benadryl to no avail. He hasn't had a decent night's sleep in weeks.
Avatar f tn started getting hives and an increase in my asthma symptoms in sept 2010, no explanation for this that i am aware of, tried benadryl seemed to make it worse, lortadine didnt help either, the itching, burning, stinging was unbearable. started taking zyrtec, seemed to help a little but starts up again so i also started taking zantac along with the zyrtec. i am still getting some hives and itching but now for about the past 3-4 wks now i'm also getting nausea, please help!
Avatar m tn Hi, 1st post, here we go. After Years of begging my provider to get looked at for chronic infections and dealing with year long colds (tricare is a horrible, horrible orginization) I finally got a poke test and tested positive for 6 different kinds of weeds, juniper, and cats. I have pretty harsh allergy symptoms all year. -Cracking and poping in ears every time I swallow. Mostly the left one pops and the right one seems so inflamed it only does sometimes.
Avatar f tn My 12 year old daughter was just diagnosed today with this. I read the other posts relating thyroid problems with autoimmune urticaria. Since I have hypothyroidism, I'm guessing that she should be tested for this at her regular doctor's office? Right now all I can afford is the double dose of Zyrtec, but with everything else she's allergic to (7 types of trees, 3 molds, ragweed, cat, feathers,dust mites & roaches of course) the allergy shots would be better for her, right?
Avatar f tn Last ent I went to did allergy testing as well as hearing test. Allergy testing showed allergy to dustmites, mold, and cockroaches (eww). Though I don't have cockroaches in my apt, dustmites and mold are hard to avoid especially with all the rain and humidity I've been getting where I live. I'm at a loss I don't know what else to do or where else to turn.
Avatar f tn It's allergy season over here and mine are in full effect today and I'm miserable :( I'm not taking anything until I talk to my doctor at my next appointment, which is tomorrow thank goodness, but I was just wondering what you ladies take for seasonal allergies? I remember my ob with mylast child said it was safe to take anything but Allegra, but I'd still like to know what other mommies to be are taking for allergy relief. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Allergy testing is performed in atopic pets to indicate which allergens are to be included in a hyposensitization vaccine. Allergy hyposensitization injections are given every 1-4 weeks (the dose and frequency of the vaccine are different for every pet), usually lifelong, and are helpful in 70-75% of allergic pets to reduce symptoms and needs for medications.
Avatar f tn I asked for a referral for allergy testing last November, and I am going to have to wait until June of 2011 to get in for an appointment because the Canadian health system is terrible. I ate some raw egg today (meringue) forgetting myself.... my allergy to raw eggs was not really all that bad before, but now it's been over an hour and I'm still having symptoms, I even considered going up to the hospital if the swelling didn't stop (which it has started to get better).
Avatar f tn For the last 4 years I've had an on-going problem that is getting worse. It started with my lower legs. When I would shave and the hair would start growing back my legs itched terribly. I saw a dermatologist and decided to have laser hair removal to solve the problem. It helped a little but now it has spread. periodically I get hives(?) on different parts of my body. Now it is every day.
