Doctor :   Ok
User :   im back
User :   have you figuired out what might be the cause to my skin?
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   I shall explain you
User :   i forgot to also mention that when i have the rash and i scratch it bumps appear and then the bumps become misquito bites
User :   ok
Doctor :   Now there is something called as patch test or a prick test
Doctor :   where in you shall be tested for different allergens
User :   i had a prick test wen i was smaller
Doctor :   which are known to cause allergy
Doctor :   once that is detected
Doctor :   the next step would be avoiding that allergen
Doctor :   if that is not practical then immunotherapy shall be considered
Doctor :   immunotherapy is a procedure wherein you shall be given increased allergen dose into the body
Doctor :   making it reactionless
User :   for example
User :   they will give me mango to eat?
User :   because im allergic to it?
Doctor :   No, in that case you should avoid
Doctor :   there are certain inhalant allergens
Doctor :   which are present in the environment
Doctor :   and cannot be avoided
Doctor :   int that case, the immunotherapy shall be initiated
Doctor :   Are you getting it?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Fine
User :   are there also shots?
Doctor :   Yes, it shall be injected
Doctor :   that is the mode of treatment
User :   on the arm right?
Doctor :   vaccination, if you are asking of, then it is not present
Doctor :   it shall be given depending on the allergen
User :   is there any other way to immunotherapy that dosnt include injections?
User :   because like all kids im deathly afraid of shots
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   but it is not that painful
Doctor :   it shall involve a single prick rather
Doctor :   hence you should not worry
User :   oh
Doctor :   it is a time proven treatment
User :   i did a similar test when a nurse poked me with needles
Doctor :   and alternatives are not available
User :   okay then
User :   but is allergies the only to reason that whenefver i scratch my rash
User :   it becomes like a misquito bite
Doctor :   Yes, sensitive skin
Doctor :   or hypersensitive rather
Doctor :   a synonym of allergy
User :   oh okay
Doctor :   Is there anything else you want to ask?
User :   if i quit now will my 45 minutes be over?
Doctor :   Yes, it is for one session
User :   this is my first time to a live doctor
User :   oh
Doctor :   Ok, you can use it anytime 24/7
User :   i have another personal question about my behavior
Doctor :   if you have any health queries
Doctor :   Sure, proceed with it
User :   well sometimes my mom yells at me for really stupid things like not finishing breakfest but shes only doing this to teach me that i shoudnt be wasting food
User :   but sometimes i actually get so mad
User :   i cant control myself
User :   and something strange happens to me
Doctor :   Ok
User :   my whole body is numb
User :   and i cant control my rage
Doctor :   it is common during teens to have such temperments
User :   so one time i took a chair and i smashed it bty smashing my fists
Doctor :   you can control it by practising good relaxation methods
Doctor :   like a sport you like, involving a good hobby
User :   but why is it my body begins to feel numb?
Doctor :   these shall relax your mind and reduce the rage
Doctor :   it is a nervous response to such degree of excitement
User :   when i was in that state i condnt control my actions no matter how hard i tried i actually wanted to kill someone in that state
Doctor :   You can consult a clinical psychologist for certain techniques
Doctor :   to amend your behavior
User :   okay
User :   but normally im a peaceful person its just that i hold all the anger inside
User :   until i cant take it anymore and it erupts]
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   You can change it
Doctor :   try it with yourself like the methods I mentioned
Doctor :   if not helping then do consult a clinical Psychologist
User :   okay but usually when i get mad and i get into a fight or something i dont get into that state
User :   and this might be a stupid question but is there any way i can Purpusly triggure it
User :   like somehow train myself to be in that state whenever i want
Doctor :   No, it is not possible for everyone
Doctor :   and not desirable as well
User :   ok
User :   when im running sprints like 400 meter sprints i run as hard as i can but im afraid to keep doing that because it might injure my body
User :   when my muscle is that cramped is it possible for me to keep sprinting as fast as i can
Doctor :   Injury is possible if you do it very often for longer distances
Doctor :   400m is fine
User :   okay
Doctor :   you should rehydrate yourself everytime
User :   what distance is considered long?
Doctor :   with good fluids and minerals
Doctor :   say around 3000m for your age
User :   okay
Doctor :   Does that complete your query?
