Avatar f tn and I asked him is he sure that he had one because he says he thinks he has something but never does like he thinks him having allergies is a flu/cold. He said no that it was just a pimple and it was in between his lip and nose and big and it was just one bump.
Avatar n tn Hi. I've never suffered from allergies before and I'm 19. From late November onward I started suffering from severly itchy eyes which turn red. Then over the course of the next weeks it would be accompanied with sneezing, itchy throat and runny nose. I know it can't be a cold because it comes and goes during the day and I've had it for almost 2 to 3 months now. Could I be suffering from seasonal allergies?
Avatar f tn Is it really asthma when you only get it when you have a upper respitory infection otherwise there is nothing. Even with a cold there is nothing just when the virus hits the lungs?
Avatar f tn I find it weird that i am catching a cold all of a sudden. Is it normal to have a stuffy nose right now? Am i just freaking out? Help!
Avatar n tn Could it be that I just contracted the common cold from being out in the cold rainy weather and sharing a bottle with my friend, or could it be gonorrhea? If it is more than a cold, do you think it would be too late to go to the doctor on the 16th? Because I have an appt. booked for other reasons.
Avatar m tn Did any of you know that allergies are being described now as autoimmunity? I am autoimmune in general, have never had allergies in my life!, and since my accident 4 yrs ago, have had a volcano of autoimmune and dysautonomic symptoms, including...sinus problems. Constant,thick,clear to cloudy(don't see much of the mucus as I swallow most of it after snorting it back to my throat) mucus ...esp at night, but goes on all day. I have NEVER had allergies, but the last few yrs...
Avatar n tn I don't know what the discharge is or what it means. I had to try a few different kinds of cat foods before I found one that my cat likes that she isn't allergic to. My cat is allergic to grains.
Avatar f tn Also if it is a serious cold you will probably need antibiotics just so you dont get an infection. Hope this helps somewhat. If your symptoms dont go away in a few days or if they get worse I would go to a clinic as soon as possible.

Avatar f tn s from a tickle in my throat from it being sore. My mom thinks it allergies and let me add that both times it was extremely cold in the house plus I have a habit of holding my urine. Just wanting to know is it possible I may be HIV+? Mind you I never had a fever nor body aches except from last weekend. What do you think?
Avatar f tn For me, it was stress that was causing the fluctuations in the way I could handle the so-called allergies. I know when the body is in flight-or-fight, our immune system is weakened and this can cause allergies to things we were normally never allergic to in the first place. I do know that our allergies can change about every 3 to 5 years. They can also return for apparently no reason. As to allergy to vegetable oils, yes, it is possible, especially if it is soy based.
Avatar m tn give it a cupple days and see or if it bothers you that much get it checked. mine went a way in a cupple days .
Avatar f tn t think think this is cold sore and I never had a cold sore around my mouth. Can you tell me what cause this? Thank you.
942934 tn?1268108382 t know that because of the coughing and they will confuse it for a cold until it gets worse. But when you start having shortness of breathes and coughing , or just trying to breath in deep so you don't cough, you are actually having a asthma attack. And most of the time it is caused by allergies due to dust , dirt, mold, animals and so on....
Avatar f tn HI, Maybe the unequal pressure in your ear is causing the dizziness and then you get scared and anxiety is there. But I'm not a Dr, just a mom of 4 older children who have had severe allergies. HAs the Dr prescribed a nasal spray such as Flonase maybe to help take down the swelling? Maybe an ENT is the next step if it continues bcz sometimes sinusitis can settle in the ear causing the vertigo you experience. Keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I get a cold every two weeks like clock work and each time it last about a week to a week and a half. It doesn't matter if its fall, winter or spring, I am always sick. During the summers I would get strep throat anywhere from 2 to 4 times which is why I have recently had my tonsils removed. I am sick once again with a sinus congestion, cough, yellow mucus, tiredness and pain in the lower back and have had family and friends ask for the hundredth time why I am always sick.
Avatar f tn I suggest a dermatologist’s examination as it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis without examination. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I've been prescribed to citalopram and am still reducing my dosage of clonazepam(due to seizures). Is it safe to take the two together or should I wait until I'm completely off the clonazepam? I have no allergies that I'm aware of. My doctor was super busy and I forgot to ask if I should stop the clonazepam. Any help is appreciated.
