User:Everyday evening, I am getting some kind of allergy and itching all over my hands and legs..
Doctor:When and how did it start?
User:And with little itching, I see lot of big bubbles kind ..
User:It started some 4 months ago..
User:I recently moved in to a new home.. and could be because of the dust ..!?
Doctor:It seems like you are comming into contact with something that you are allergic too
User:Couple of weeks back, I had a chat with Dr. XXXXXXX here.. and she suggested, Cetrizine 10 mg
Doctor:Dust would not affect just your hands, you would breath it in and it would cause stuffiness as well
User:I had taken that for 3 days, and for last 1 week, I did not have any problem..
Doctor:ok, did the cetrizine work?
User:I stopped taking that, and again I see the same..
Doctor:Well then there you go, you have allergies.. diagnosis is proven by the effect of the cetrizine
User:so should I continue with Cetrizine 10 mg?
Doctor:That is fine, if it is not causing any side effects, please continue
User:How many days should I continue?
Doctor:These are drugs that need to be taken continously. I would suggest you continue for the season. ONce the rainy season is over, you can stop and see if the allergy has settled
Doctor:Do you have any more queries?
Doctor:Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
