648155 tn?1238197357 Two days ago I was prescribed high dose amoxicillan to treat an ear infection and strep throat. It seems my urticaria has kicked into high gear. I have never had a drug allergy in the past, but is it possible or even probable that I have one now that i suffer from autoimmune diseases? I read somewhere that drug allergy is in a sense autoimmune in that your body attacks the drug thinking it is bad. Anyone develop drug allergies with autoimmune disorders?

Avatar f tn Lately, I get this feeling like there is a something stuck in my throat, I get chest pains, the bottom of my feet hurt when I walk. I feel tired. I cough and nothing comes out, sometimes heavy mucus comes out. THe pain in my chest is on my left side. I found out that I have cold urticaria- allergic to the cold and cold water. The doctor first thought I was suffering from GERD or acid reflux.
Avatar f tn I was siagnosed about a year ago. It has been the worst diagnoses along with my death sentence of MRSA Staph infection. I thought it was a string of bad luck for me but bad luck shouldn't last my whole life or at least to what I have left. I'm on medications for this chronic urticaria. the following is Doxepin 25mg, Rantidine, and my epi pen. My doctors described this as something related to my staph infection or stress.
Avatar n tn root of tooth broke off and shot up into sinus cavity can this cause cronic urticaria
Avatar f tn In most of the cases of chronic urticaria, the underlying pathology is idiopathic i.e it is not linked to any cause. Idiopathic urticaria and angioedema can even be accompanied by symptoms and signs of anaphylaxis in a syndrome called idiopathic anaphylaxis. It is essential to rule out the presence of serious illnesses of which recurring hives can be a symptom.
Avatar n tn I'm an 18 year old female.I've been experiencing the above symptoms for a quite a while, with the occasional "feeling of bugs crawling all over me" and smelling non-existent food. I'm having trouble concentrating. I have sharp pains at certain points on my head and everythings goes bright and i feel like im gonna fall. Or when I get up I feel shaky and dizzy. I take paracetamol ( in very small doses, like half a tablet) for the headaches, but then I get nosebleeds.
Avatar m tn Hello, I see that you are having the problem of chronic urticaria. It is defined as urticaria that persists for longer than 6 weeks. In most of the cases of chronic urticaria, the underlying pathology is idiopathic i.e it is not linked to any cause. Many cases of hives are "idiopathic," meaning no cause is known. Others may be triggered by viral infections or medications. In your case sinus infections could have been the trigger. Sometimes the treatment for hives i.
Avatar f tn This looks like urticaria or hives. The swellings or wheals produced after itching can be pale (of skin color) or red. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or cosmetics. Since your sister experienced an itch, just tell her to go over these possibilities in your mind. Something may strike her.
Avatar f tn m so scared my throat will swell while sleeping. I haven't changed any detergent,no new meds I'm just miserable. Today I will no longer take any of my meds bc they all have warnings if hives occur on face STOP TAKiNG......someone please help me.
Avatar n tn I still get some rash in the morning which disappears (i dont take any more pills) All the doctors who saw me said it was urticaria and that i may have it for some time. I had urticaria again 14 years ago, when i was 18,19 years old (no possible HIV infection then). I have also been feeling tired and sleepy and i am generally very stressful. 1. COULD ALL THESE BE SYMPTOMS OF HIV INFECTION? 2. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO LAST SO LONG AFTER THE LAST TIME I HAD SEX? 3. DO I NEED A TEST? 4.
Avatar n tn m just looking for advice and to see if anyone else is going through what i am. I was Diagnosed with chronic Cholinergic Urticaria. I cant exercise, i cant even go outside in the winter, i break out in hives every single day and every time i do, my throat gets real scratchy, and really gets be scared. On top of that i'm also highly allergic to dust, molds, pollen, dander, and almost every other airborne allergens. So when i dont get hives from CU, i get them from the airborne allergens.
Avatar m tn Can an infection (autoimmune urticaria, vascitis,systemic mastocytosis,Pseudotumor cerebri, ) be causing his chronic urticaria and other dental issues? Could an infection lay dormant for years then cause inflamation later? Due to his chronic urticaria is it possible that the tooth abcesses the infection spread to his brain causing inflamation or vascitis to develop? Are there centers in the US that treat this condition?

Avatar n tn A complete history with proper evaluation can confirm the cause for urticaria. Treatment depends upon the cause for urticaria. Prevention of the allergen is the most important part of treatment of this condition. Best.
Avatar n tn My 21 month old daughter has just started getting these as well, she has had a chest, throat and ear infection is on antiboitics, they come up randomly on her face and neck sometimes they are single red lumps and other times they are patches full of small lumps (looks like stingy nettle stings) been to hosiptal they said its to do with her illness, still scares me everytime!
Avatar n tn s very uncomfortable and burns my nose, throat and esophagus. I do have GERD as well as chronic urticaria and take a regimen of meds to keep the chronic urticaria under control. Zantac is part of that regimen. Is there risk of ending up with some other kind of problem because of the fluoxetine burning my nose, throat and espohagus?
Avatar f tn After looking into it, what you have is truly an allergy to cold. Refered to as 'cold urticaria'. With cold urticaria, exposure to cold temperatures causes redness, itching, swelling and hives on your skin. People with cold urticaria should avoid exposure to cold air or water as much as possible. (Source: Mayo Clinic, http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cold-urticaria/DS01160) This completely agrees with everything you have said, and thus proves your cold allergy.
Avatar m tn Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. You have known to have mildly higher levels. It can be seen in patients with urticaria or allergic dermatitis. It is usually seen secondary to exposure to allergen and subsequent reaction is mediated by IgE antibodies. Your body is known to hypersensitive to certain things.
Avatar f tn The fluid under my skin, the swelling speads, to the point where the back of my throat was swollen that I had to be injected with a hydrocortosone and an anti histamine. It is some sort of reaction. I just can not pin point how or why it happens.
Avatar n tn January 2012 - while vacationing at the beach had a big lump appear on the bottoms of each foot. It was hard, painful and itchy. At the time I was taking 2 anti-biotics for a bladder infection. I didn't not pay any attention to food or anything I consumed. I thought it may have been a reaction to the sand or something there. Jan. 2012 - a week later I broke out in hives all over my body and felt my throat tightening.
Avatar f tn After having my daughter in Feb 2008 I started getting hives. After much testing and eliminating, my immunologist told me it was Autoimmune Urticaria. I spent the next year taking many prescribed and otc meds. These meds did help some but the hives were still there. Then I got pregnant again and most of the symptoms went into remission. Now I am 3 months post partum and I itch like mad. I am not having as my wheels but more of an overall redness, constantly.
Avatar n tn It is also known as nettle rash or uredo. Wheals from urticaria can appear anywhere on the body, including the face, lips, tongue, throat, and ears. The wheals may vary in size from about 5 mm (0.2 inches) in diameter to the size of a dinner plate; they typically itch severely, sting, or burn, and often have a pale border. Drug treatment is typically in the form of Antihistamines such as diphenhydramine, hydroxyzine, cetirizine and other H1 receptor antagonists.
Avatar m tn Hello, This rash could be due to hives which can occur after a viral infection. 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.
