Avatar n tn Raised bumps on the skin can be hives (which tend to come and go and never lose hair or become crusted), or to a skin infection (most commonly bacteria, other causes are fungal or demodex mite infections).

Avatar n tn Allergic reactions cause the body to release chemicals that can make the skin swell up in hives. People who have other allergies are more likely to get hives than other people. Other causes include infections and stress. Hives are very common. They usually go away on their own, but of course, it still strongly recommended having it checked by a doctor who can look at the lesion as well as the tattoo for proper evaluation.

For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist.

620048 tn?1358021835 o[] I have to admit to sceptism that anxiety was the direct cause of 'your' hives, oh I know it can be the cause but when a persons got so many physiological things happening to them, and take numerous medications, and has a brain thats no longer playing by the rules, then anxiety as the cause makes me just doubtful.

Avatar n tn I have been trying to find info on Cyclosporin use for hives. I was told in high doses and long periods of use it can cause kidney/liver problems.

280418 tn?1306329510 I did contact a friend of mine who is very up on Lyme (she's a vet and has had Lyme herself for 10 years) and her thoughts were that I might not be having a reaction to the Zith but it is a Herx reaction to the bacteria dying off, which can cause the same symptoms. I don't know what is going on but I want it over.
Avatar n tn Carrie: Nearly all hives have no specific cause. Even if stress brings out yours, it's hard to eliminate stress. My usual approach is to minimize the symptoms by using antihistamines and topical (external) anti-itch measures. This usually suppresses the hives to a reasonable extent and minimizes future scarring. As for the old "scars," at least some if not most of them will go away if you leave them alone and give them long enough.

Avatar n tn Saw some improvement after wisdom tooth removal and antibiotics. But after a month of being off of the antibiotics, the hives and slowly going back to its old self.

659485 tn?1224824640 If complications include infections (often of Staphylococcus aureus), antibiotics may be employed. The immunosuppressant Tacrolimus or pimecrolimus can be used as a topical preparation in the treatment of severe atopic dermatitis instead of traditional steroid creams. However, there can be unpleasant side effects in some patients such as intense stinging or burning. Let us know if you need any further information.

Avatar n tn A very light allergy undetected may worsen when on a drug which suppresses/weakens you immune, even temporarily, can make the allergic reaction worse! And the hives can be from the drug causing the nervous system stress. And the nerves then cause the hives.
Avatar m tn Yes, anxiety can cause dry mouth. If you can chew gum or hard candy that can really help. I'm really glad to here you're feeling less worried.
Avatar n tn You will be surprised to know the bacteria responsible for GERD, heart burn, acid reflux etc called Helicobacter Pylori or H pylori can cause hives. Antibiotics given to clear up the bacteria also take care of the hives. Diagnosis is generally by carbon urea breath test. Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes.

Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it definitely sounds like hives. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications.
Avatar n tn Hi, Do try the anti-histamines first and see if the symptoms suside. Allergy can start at any time in a person,s life. In many instances the cause may remain unknown. Hives can appear anywhere on the body, cropping up either in one small area or covering large patches of skin. They most often occur as part of an allergic reaction. No one lesion lasts more than 24 hours, but new ones may continue to appear until the condition resolves.
Avatar n tn You need to rule out an infective cause of your symptoms for which you will also need to take a course of antibiotics. Hope this helps. Regards.
Avatar m tn You will be surprised to know the bacteria responsible for GERD, heart burn, acid reflux etc called Helicobacter Pylori or H pylori can cause hives.

Diagnosis is generally by carbon urea breath test. Please consult a gastroenterologist. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
