288415 tn?1231634102 I'm wondering if any of you have a dog - it feels like a chronic allergic reaction - ever since I moved out of the city, and also since I've had a dog --- anyone else with itchy ears have a dog? It's driving me insane - and even when I stopped using q-tips, which was torture, they still itched and oozed....I once got so desperate I stuck a garlic clove in my left ear and left it there! Maybe because it was cold, I don't know, but it actually seemed to help temporarily!!!
Avatar f tn just try to go to the dr if it gets worse my chest was itchy and hard to breath but i also had a cough and it was bronchitis but sounds so far you could maybe just have a cold, and like others said hat of some sort would help with ears i think especially with the wind and idk where you are but its cold and windy where im at.
Avatar m tn For the last two years I have had wet itchy ears that get clogged, and with the white flakey stuff too. The antibiotic drops work, but the itchiness and other symtoms all come back within one or two weeks. The itchiness gets so bad that I can't stand it and I dont care if q-tips are bad, I have to stop the itching or go insane. I didn't know until I stumbled accross this sight that there are others out there that understand what I am going through. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Get a small dispenser bottle that has a wide mouth, with a lid, and with which you will be able to dip a q-tip into. Mix the following: 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, 2 tablespoons of Isopropyl alcohol or Rubbing Alcohol and a 1/4 tsp of Xylitol. You can get this at a Health Food store. "Google" it.... Xylitol has been used for years in toothpaste for it's bacteria fighting properties and can be used as a saline cleanse to reduce bacteria..

Avatar f tn I have taken my contact len out in this eye and am wearing my glasses for a few days until my symptons clear. Do you think this is just because I have a cold that my eyes are itchy and dry and a little tired? Does a cold affect your eyes? I have also developed a very small lump like a small pimple on my right eye that is affected - it is a small clear like pimple on the lower inside eye lid? Any advice would be appreciated?
Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
Avatar f tn When your ears and throat itch, that usually means that your body is fighting some irritant, like bacteria, fungal or viral problem. The yellowish thing coming from your throat could be some rubbish that has come away that was stuck in the Eustachian tube. If the yellowish smelling thing is like runny and soft, this will be phlegm sometimes called mucus.
351724 tn?1267540618 i also did have a bad upper resp. infection with bronch. a cpl of yrs ago but really havent had anything like that since then . I dont know if this has anything to do with it or not but i have been having problems on my left side of my ribcage. in my back side and front i would get pains ,sometimes they felt as though i had stitches inside and others like a dull ache or sharp stabbing pain.
Avatar n tn when I found this site/post.. About a year ago I got a cold (no big deal, I get about one a year) but my blocked ears have never gone away. It has literally been a year for me as well and, as I am usually a very healthy person with no allergies, it is driving me insane. I have been to my doctor who said I might have some fluid in my ears and to try sudafed. Used it again and again and it did not work. Then I was prescribed flonase. Also did not work.
Avatar f tn I have a blocked nose also and a bit of a cold coming on but nothing is easing my headache. It's occasionally sharp and tingling across my whole scalp but mainly feels dull and heavy like a bowling ball. I also have developed a slight red rash around my neck which isn't painful or itchy but has cropped up the same time as my headache. Are these effeccts of a cold?
Avatar f tn It could be a fungus. Try Lamisil cream for a week. There is a generic version that is less expensive. Usually, fungal infections don't get swollen but maybe it is a combination. Perhaps try the antifungal and tell your doctor the antibiotic didn't work. It may be a bacteria that just is resistant such as a staph infection. What does it look like? I mean is it like a boil or scabby?
Avatar f tn Hives are red, itchy welts or swellings on the skin that often come in clusters. They sometimes have a light red or pale center surrounded by a darker red area around the borders -- a marking resembling tiny bull's eyes -- but may simply look like large red circles. In doctor speak, hives are known as "urticaria." 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.
Avatar n tn 5 log drop at 4 wks I am still in the 50% range, not everyone agrees with this but I am going to go with I still have a good shot. Try and deal with your sx's just everyday sometims every moment. It does wear on us especially when we don't get the results we want or are not feeling well but man we got no other choice right now.
6710145 tn?1395238034 For 3 days I've had an itchy throat with a cough that brings up little mucas, sometimes a runny nose but doesn't last long. Mild headaches and itchy ears... only a few aches every now an then.. could this be phemonia or something else?
Avatar n tn The past 3 weeks I have been getting VERY itchy on my neck, scalp and back. after i itch the area a bunch of little bumps appear, along with redness.(it almost looks like ant bites!) i thought it may be due to dry skin (because of the cold weather) i have tryed eucerin lotion to see if that would solve the problem. no luck there. I have been reading about the condition called notalgia paresthetica. I read that it had something to do with the nerves from your spinal cord.
145997 tn?1196795421 kind of weird to be excited about shots but I am ready to be pregnant!!! You have been through a lot with this pregnancy too!!! hems, and now a cold!! what the heck!!??? I will talk to you later....drink lots of water....
Avatar m tn Once I came back into my house, I noticed blood rushing into my cheeks, making them hot and itchy. Then, I noticed a red rash on my cheeks and a lot of small white welts or protrusions. After about 30 minutes, they where almost all gone. This has only happened to me recently, despite having lived all my life in Colorado. At first I thought it might have been an allergic reaction to the fibers of my coat, so I washed it, but I still have this reaction.
Avatar n tn It results in patches of red, swollen and itchy skin that are thought to be caused by a combination of cold weather and poor circulation. The maximum risk is seen in extremities such as the toes, fingers, nose and ear lobes. Elderly or sedentary people, and those with conditions such as anemia, are most susceptible. This condition however, doesn’t cause any permanent damage to tissue.
211605 tn?1219459346 My DD is 1 and she was having the same thing, along with myself. Runny nose, cough, watery eyes, itchy ears. The works, we even had fevers. Went to her ped, she said it was allerigies put her on childern's Zertec and Childern's Bendryal. It's working OK, but not clearing everything up 100%. Still a pretty runny nose, but congestion and coughing seem to be reduced. The doctor said it could be until summer that she'll need to be on these.
Avatar n tn i feel cold and i have burning sensation in my ears...... My eyes turn red always, when i consulted doctor he suggested me LEVOCET. Levocet gives me relif but it lasts for only two days. again i suffer from the above. I smoke always , it is from past 7 years and drink occasionally. i consume alcohol veryless... I work in computers field almost glued to laptop 15-18 hours per day. Could someone suggest me a way to get rid of levocet.
Avatar f tn I've been feeling like I have a cold since the 1st of May. Nose is itchy, ears hurting, headaches, coughing uncontrollable to the point my chest feels raw. I went to the Er and the doc said since I'm so early in he pregnancy technically I need to stay away from risk meds. This cough is killing me, anyone know of any home remedies that won't hurt my baby but make me feel better? I've been taking Tylenol for my headaches.
Avatar n tn Cold uticaria is an "allergy" to the cold. Exposure to cold will cause a histamine reaction similiar to that of any allergen, but cold uticaria results in hives that begin on the face, hands, and neck. The most common form has a rapid onset of hives on exposure to the cold. To test for this, put an ice cube on the skin for 1-5minutes. A "positive" would result in the appearance of a hive on the skin.
Avatar n tn A contact or allergic dermatitis is still a differential. I suggest that you seek a second opinion with regards to this and discuss this with your physician.
Avatar f tn I had my ears pierced with titanium studs from Blomdahl Caring Jewellery on 25 January 2011. On 2 February 2011 in the afternoon, my feet started itching something terrible. I could not sleep for 2 nights, the itching was so bad. If I put my feet in cold water, it helps a bit. It comes and goes. Today was very bad again. I itch basically all over my body now, but my feet are definately the worst. There is no rash, no hives and my ears look very healthy.
Avatar n tn Good morning to have certainly posed a unique question! First, are your dog's ears upright or floppy? I know it seems silly, but I am trying to visualize whether you are describing sores on the skin below her ear canal or sores on the tips of her ear flaps... How long did you try a different food? If your pet has any type of food allergies, you will need to leave your dog on the new food for at least 8-10 weeks before knowing whether or not it is helping.
Avatar n tn The only difference I see in mine and what everyone has posted is that many times mine rarely goes away without antibiotics, but this could be b/c 9 times out of 10 when I have a cold it turns into a sinus infection. I liked the post with the website about the hormones, I'll have to ask my doctor about that.
Avatar n tn I've also thought my itchy ears were related to yeast. I had been dealing with itchy ears for a number of years and started paying closer attention to when they got really bad. I noticed that they would flair up after drinking beer. If I drank a lot of beer, I would get the clear fluid that everyone is talking about in this discussion and my ears would be so itchy that they would wake me up.
Avatar n tn From my neck, it went down on my back and turned into a very blotchy red itchy rash all along the panty elastic. even my palms and soles would become itchy just like on the skin. Even the inside of my ear was affected by it. Something strange about this rash is that if my skin is completely clear and if someone holds it roughly, it would start itching profusely at that spot and the blotchy rashh would appear there.
