I am almost 9 weeks postpartum with my 4 son. I went for a run this evening (very slow and only a mile). When I stepped out of the shower I noticed I have a raised line across my abdomen. It is the same color as my skin. I sprayed some topical benadryl on it. I am not sure what I would of had a reaction to. I do have some abdominal cramping as well - not too bad. I just figured it was normal to have some cramping when resuming regular activities.

I have had clearish/yellowish liquid running out of my ears at night and only at night. It has been going on for months now. I have allergies and I am taking some Zyrtec and benadryl at night. I have tried everything I know to fix it. It will dry up and then come right back. What is going on? I am 36, 5 7 , female, 195lbs, I have hypothyroid, borderline diabetes and PCOS.

my mom had bilateral cortisone/novocaine shoulder injections April 17 for osteoarthritis. Not taking any other medications regularly, but April 20, she started itching and today she s itching something fierce. don t you normally treat drug reactions in this manner WITH prednisone and Benadryl? If that s the case, I m guessing the reaction is coming from the novocaine and not the cortisone. How can we treat this on a home level without another visit to the doctor? Right now she s using hydrocortisone cream and ice cubes.
