Doctor:Hi,
Please proceed with your query
User:hi Dr.
User:I am getting skin rashes all over my body specially on face, back and hand. I had shown to skin specialist (MD) and he had advised me to take Aciloc and Allegra 180 for 3 months. Now its more than 3 months but the problem is still there. Now the condition has become so worse that even one day i skip the tablet i get itching on face and back etc. Please help it really becomes worst when the itch starts when you are in meeting and you can't control.
User:I tried looking into diet also as to check if its related to something but there is nothing specific, it starts at any given point of time...
Doctor:Skin rashes is something that can be diagnosed only after physical examination under broad light.
Doctor:If needed a skin biopsy will be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
Doctor:Since you been using the antihistamines for more than 3 months, without fruitful results
Doctor:it is clear that it is either not due to allergy or the medication isn't working as effectively as it used.
Doctor:Based on my experience the possibility of the later is less likely.
Doctor:Therefore I insist you go back to another specialist
Doctor:and discuss about the cause.
