Natural antihistamine for bug bites

Common Questions and Answers about Natural antihistamine for bug bites


Avatar m tn Witch hazel, St. John’s Wort and Lemon juice – all work by removing the desire to itch (Astringents). The gel from the Aloe plant is how many treat bed bug bites and contains anti-fungal and antibiotic properties that work great! Simply trim a tip and apply the exposed area to the bite. Handed down from generations is the bath with peppermint oil, fill the tub with bath water, then add a half cup of peppermint oil to relieve the itching.
Avatar n tn I can go for months without itching then suffer from several weeks of itching. I regularly take antihistamine tablets for another condition and these seem to have had little affect. I am extremely puzzled by all of this and especially after such a long time am somewhat suspicous that I could be hosting some parasites that appear to have taken a liking to me but have long overstayed their welcome.
Avatar f tn One day I realised that at that time of year I would spend a fair bit of time in the evenings looking for gnats to swat so they didnt bite me at night! (always been really prone to mozzy bites!) And I realised that it is after looking up for any length of time that I get the itches! If I massage my neck and roll my shoulders enough, the itching will usually go, and has stayed away for a couple of years at a time :-)) what a relief!!
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar m tn I see alot of places that state there is no cure for they mean that there is no cure for the itching? or a cure for the appearance? is there any hope that i can wear shorts in the future? some thoughts i had were chemical peels? laser treatments? would these work? if so, which professional should i go to? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I too have been suffering from what appeared to be bug bites around my thighs and buttocks at times for what seemed years. They would burn and itch like crazy!! Sometimes I'd have them else where too, scalp, knees, especally on my back. If left them alone for a period of time they'd dry up and flake off...ahh relief! Well, I noticed while I was out of town for any period of time I'd feel better but once I got home I'd start itching again!
Avatar f tn Are you sure you're in the right forum? There might be a forum for people dealing with parasites---- you could use the search menu. I'm sure that the bites are causing you much anguish but ticks don't bite like that. They bite once and hang on until they drop off or are pulled off. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Dry skin from the extremely long hot showers I was taking and an allergic reaction build up from all the Permethrin I'd been spraying in my house to get rid of fleas and insects. My house is proudly bug free well except for the occasional millipede. lol The last possible thing going on with me though unlikely is that something is going wrong with my liver or my thyroid. So I just had my blood tested today for liver, thyroid and I had my cholesterol checked since its time.
Avatar n tn 33/F Fair skin, freckles. It all started this past January. I was in Arizona for several weeks. On they way home to the east coast, I noticed some red bumps on nose and cheeks. I thought it was adult acne and very strange for me. Also at the same time I had some itchy bumps on the side of right knee and some on other leg also. I thought the itchy red bumps on legs were from hiking: one day I was pricked by a prickly plant in Arizona.
Avatar f tn I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative. I have had bloodwork done and it was negative. Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing same symptoms.
Avatar n tn I've pretty much ruled out allergies, since I haven't been in contact with anything different than normal. Same with bug bites, especially since they don't appear to look like a bite at all. I'm completely puzzled...any help? Pics:
Avatar f tn Were you in any unusual places right before this began, or around any sick people or animals? Any bug bites then? Exotic food? Any possibility of contaminated water? With neutrophils high, that would tend toward bacteria or fungus, not virus. Or maybe a parasite. Any fever? No doc prescribed an antibiotic, just to see if that helps? Any white patches in the mouth? Dizziness can happen during an infection, because immune chemicals overly dilate the arteries.
Avatar f tn I have been inching for days now and I though it was bed bug bites! these red ishy spots have went into loads of blochy bruises, I am very worried and I am wondering what this could be?
Avatar n tn Today for example it’s non-stop, even when I'm not in my office, at home for example, I feel the crawling. I feel the sensation on my face, legs, arms, neck, stomach, and back. Can excessive bug bites cause this to happen? I can't find information on this. When I researched the only information I found was on larvae. I don't even want to think about that possibility. Any info would be helpful, thanks.
Avatar f tn More itchy and when i scratch (oh, you try not's a natural instinct) I get red and then the welts pop up. Its calm for a while then flares up again. I've tried putting ice on large flair ups to numb and sooth it so i don't scratch. :) Called doctors office today to get refill on Prednisone, since i only have a few left and not enough to taper off. It same time line follows as last time, i should be clear by this Friday.
Avatar n tn But it only happens after a night of drinking. My first few bites of food, I get really dizzy for a few seconds.
Avatar n tn I had rash, itching scalp, and rest of body about 2 years ago and the doctor related it to mosquito bites which I had gotten many bites. With prescription for acetonide ointment and something in put on my scalp, it got rid of it. This time, it's much worse and no mosquito bites but I stayed much longer at my son's home than usual - who has dogs and cats. Don't know if I was bitten by a flea or not but did sit on their couch instead of a wooden chair (where I normally sit).
Avatar f tn I prefer natural remedies personally but I will do whatever for them to go away for good. Has anyone had relief from doing a Total Detoxification program at all? A remember reading a gentleman's log and he had gone to India for AYURVEDA treatment.. i can't seem to find his log anymore though. He left a website I would appreciate any help or information that anyone can give me. I know how you all feel out there! It's not fun. Best of Luck everyone. Thanks again.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar n tn She has no history of allergies, bug bites or what have you, but she does get cold sores and suffered a severe outbreak on her entire face due to contracting bacterial menangitis where her immune system was so impaired, the herpes ran rampant. This was 5yrs ago, so I'm not sure if its related, but the way she describes it to me, it sounds exactly like a cold sore...It makes me wonder if it is at all possible for this virus to migrate, or if it is some new form of the disease..
Avatar n tn I have bottles of the fly and every stage of growth and I am in the process of sending them to the bug olosist for him to identify. For me I beleive the fly had laid eggs in a cut on my scalp and the hatch eggs every 2 or 3 weeks, by the way i have spent alot of money for doctors to say i am on drugs and or crazy and they see nothing. but the facts are I got tired of these flies flying out wherever i went, I got my mothers house invested. and mine to.
Avatar n tn I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks now and the little bumps on my penis head have gone away but now i have noticed an itchy bump on the side of my penis which is a bit bigger.. also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse.
Avatar n tn I was rushed to hospital by ambulance and have been given steroid injections and antihistamine. (which made me sleep for 2 hours) My tongue reduced in size and I was sent home. Consultant said, I was a "wierd" case as they still have no idea what causes it, gave me a new Epipen and sent me on my way. Funnily enough I did take penicillin some time ago, but it had no effect on me at the time. Going back to GP with new problems and see if there is anything new things to try.
Avatar m tn I don't have the 4 symtptoms for RLS. The bites look like bumps which I'm told are bed bug, but the other bites are indentented like a small chunk of skin is gone. They heal pretty fast I am going on my 7th fumigation. My fumigator seems to think I should see a Drs. I have they gave me cream for scabies, which that didn't work. When I am away from my home I do not feel these sensations. I have all my clothes in plastic bags.
Avatar n tn Remembering i had just finished a course of keflex i immediately googled it and came across this feed. Arghhhhh!!! I feel silly for putting up with the itch for so long thinking the bites would disappear but now i see it is a reaction or imbalance. Have just taken 4 probiotics in one night and a lot of yoghurt .. If there is a major improvement with that alone I will post and update but will also head to the chemist tomorrow morning for a cream.
176741 tn?1295237589 I started getting hives (believe me they were awful, they would come and go but they were everyday without warning) about 7 years ago and was sent to an allergist who tested me for everything and the only thing that was positive was thyroid peroxidase antibodies, and they were very high. I have taken a prescription antihistamine for this for years (I also have seasonal allergies).
Avatar n tn I thought maybe it could have been an allergic reaction to tomatoes or some other food. I have been taking some natural detox for the blood in pills form, I was feeling ok but last nite and this morning my hands started up again but not terrible that i want to rip them off, it's more of a burning irritating itch that is under the skin, no rash no dry skin and it tends to be activated when I do things like opening a soda bottle top or holding the retractable lead for the dogs...
