Skin allergies itching

Common Questions and Answers about Skin allergies itching


Avatar n tn Otodectes, Cheyletiella, Scabies, etc, ringworm and other fungal infections, allergies (allergies to food can occur anytime in the life of a cat), bacterial skin infections, endocrine disorders and more. Ringworm, and some mites can be transmitted to people. Frontline does not treat mites. The topical: "Revolution" is for fleas, ticks, ear mites, and scabies, so it might be a good idea to switch to Revolution for a couple of months.

Avatar f tn Ive switched my dog back to duck/potato food because while switching to venison/potato, her skin itching,hair loss, flaking, along w/ear infections/redness, increased. My question is, in the meantime, with all the itching & flaking of skin, especially the lower back area, just above the tail, should i take her in to have a prednisone/cortisone shot to alleviate these sympoms? OR will the food change alone, if it works, alleviate the flaking skin? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I have skin allergies (hives) for four days now and they keep on coming back. I already had diphenhydramine injected to my system, which provided relief for at least 14 hours then my hives are back. They are worse than nights and I don't know what to do anymore. I avoided all foods that I can be allergic to, I barely eat anything tbh. Please help! Thank you.
Avatar n tn Nerve damage caused by uncontrolled diabetes is associated with itchy skin but so are allergies to fragrances [bath and/or laundry soap], skin conditions such as pruritus [dry skin in seniors], eczema and psoriasis, and so on. Other causes are internal organ disease/failure - kidney and/or liver. Take him to a doctor asap for a thorough evaluation. Hopefully it's something as simple as pruritus not the onset of renal failure.
Avatar m tn 1. Increase your intake of raw vegetables, fruits, grains, and nuts. 2. Eat foods high in sulfur: garlic, onions, eggs, and asparagus (or you can purchase the amino acid L-cysteine in pill form). 3. Get your daily amount of vitamin A (good sources are yellow and orange vegetables). 4. Drink at least 2 quarts of quality water (distilled or purified) each day. 5. Avoid anything that can dehydrate you: caffeine products, fried foods, sugars, and alcohol. 6.
2040835 tn?1329869995 I would get some mild eczema when on holidays by the sea along with my skin allergies, hayfever and asthma. This would normally bother me for up to 5 days an then would clear. I moved from Europe (UK) to Australia where I was hoping all my skin conditions would disappear forever, well at least my dermatologist back home was a strong believer of that. I've been in Oz, living by the beach for almost 3 months and been having bad eczema and even worse allergies...
Avatar f tn I've never had bad allergies before. In fact I would only sneeze once in a blue moon. But for a few weeks now my eyes have been itching so bad and I would itch them to the point that I've already had two infections of my eyelid on the left side.It would swell my eyelid almost till my eye was shut. I have a pretty bad history of staph infections. Also the roof of my mouth has been itching and when it starts to itch it will get these hard lumps on one side at a time.
Avatar f tn I'm been having this situation for about 5 years everytime i get wet, sweet, nervious, or swim my skin on my arms and legs especially on the underside of my arms and tender parts of my legs i get red bumps and my skin bumps up like reptile skin with slight itching I've change laundry detergent clothing types and any thing i can think of that comes in contact with my skin do have any suggestions. thanks red.
Avatar n tn Fungal infections like tinea corporis and tinea cruris too cause whole body itching along with genital itching. Liver problems too can cause generalized itching. If the itch is only in the exposed part, it can also be due to sun allergy. Pubic and body lice can be another cause. Worms are another cause of both anal and body itch and hence get a stool test. Menopause is another reason for this. Low estrogens are supposed to be the cause. Try a diet rich in estrogens.
Avatar n tn sorry but it does sound like an allergic reaction, some people don't know this but allergic reactions don't just mean swelling with rashes and itching but an allergic reaction can cause GI problems as well such as Vomiting and Diarrhea it just depends on how your body reacts to the allergen.
Avatar f tn Hi, This could be what is called a physical allergy. Physical allergies are allergic reactions to cold, sunlight, heat, or minor injury. The immune system is designed to protect the body from harmful invaders such as germs. Occasionally, it goes awry and attacks harmless or mildly noxious agents resulting in an allergy. The immune system usually responds only to certain kinds of chemicals, namely proteins.
Avatar n tn I have been dealing with itchy skin since I moved in with my fiance. He lives in an old house but has renovated the majority of it and checked for impurities in the air. I try to put lotion on to help with dry skin and we use a water softener. I do not shower in real hot water so that can be ruled out as well. We have 2 cats and 2 dogs that live in the house, but my cats never made me itch in my previous home, and the dogs no longer sleep on the bed.
Avatar m tn Hello, A complete clinical evaluation may be necessary for appropriate diagnosis and management of your symptoms.Other than allergies and hypersensitivity few other common causes of chronic itching are liver diseases, anxiety, stress and kidney diseases. Even localized itching can sometimes be a sign of undiagnosed cancer which probably occurs due to the inflammatory response caused by the malignancy. Chronic itching has a variety of causes, some of which can be serious.
Avatar m tn The dermatologist will most likely perform a skin test for allergies. If positive, an appropriate treatment can be implemented. The are oral medications that can be prescribed, other than steroids, that may help as well. I always try to find alternatives to long term steroid use due to the potential side effects. Good luck.

Avatar f tn Hello, One of the reasons for blood shot itchy eyes can be seasonal allergies or hay fever.Even allergies due to contact dermatitis with the eye makeup can cause such symptoms.It can also be due to blepahritis or eye infections. You can take OTC antihistaminics like benadryl or Claritin. Eye drop versions of cromolyn sodium and antihistamines are available for itchy, bloodshot eyes and these can also be tried.Also maintain hygiene and avoid rubbing the eyes.
