Having Allergy, lip swelling along with mosquito bite. Taken allegra. Suggest medication? - Online Doctor Chats
I am suffering from some allergies. Initially it was very severe like my lip was also swelling along with mosquito bite like structures all over my legs and hands and back. then i showed it to a physician and he asked to take allegra after which there is no swelling on lips but when i am not taking any medicines the mosquito bites all over my legs and back. Please can you advise what could be the reason for such allergy?? I had asked this question earlier and was answered by XXXXXX XXXXXXX and he had asked me to continue with antihistamines. Last night it got very severe and my lip and lower face was swollen badly. Please suggest what do I do?
Give me a few minutes while I read your post.
Sorry for keep you waiting.
May I know your age?
Since when are you suffering with this problem?
Have you seen a dermatologist for this problem?
i have shown to a genral physician
The condition you describe is consistent with the possibility of anigoedema. It is a condition related to allergies.
The drugs you are taking - antihistamines are only preventive drugs.
however if you are looking for a permanent resolution, you need to identify the trigger factors.
please prescribe some medicines
There are skin test available to determine the specific allergens.
i was thinking heat is one of the major reasons
Heat is unlikely to be the problem.
can it be food related
egg or something like that
You might be allergic to something. And it could be related to food, medicines, insect bite, pollens from the trees or any other environmental factor.
The key is to identify the specific allergen and avoid it.
Alternatively you need to be desensitized to those allergen gradually.
This is a slow and gradual process.
Medical drugs are only going to give you a temporary relief.
Have you followed what I suggested?
I am unable to find the reason which triggers
can you suggest a good steroid and stihistamine
I suggest to my patients allergra and dexamethosone tablets for such condition. But as steroid drugs need to be administered in a tapered schedule depending on the severity of complaints and duration of treatment
I do advice you take them without a prescription.
You can discuss ask for skin patch tests to confirm the allergens and accordingly plan desensitization process.
Hope it is clear to you.
