Question: Hello Doctor,

My niece is 1.2 yrs old, she has some kind of allergy on her skin and also gets running nose and prone to sneezing after every climate change. The skin allergy is seen very often on her. Her Pediatrician has prescribed her "CYP-L 15 ml" ten drops twice a day. after giving the medicine she slept for complete 12 hrs and after getting up for her sleep she was hardly awake for 3-4 hrs and the slept for another 3 three hours again. She doesn't sleep this much normally. Should we be continuing giving her the drug or stop? we are worried.

Brief Answer:
Cyproheptadine is an anti allergic and causes sleepiness

Detailed Answer:
Hi...By what you quote I feel that the kid is having an acute urticaria or skin allergy.

(CYP-L) Cyproheptadine is an anti-allergic and causes excessive sleepiness.

Skin conditions are best diagnosed only after seeing directly. I suggest you to upload photographs of the same on this website, so that I can guide you scientifically.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.

Hello, my husband has developed a sudden and moderately severe rash (hives?). He has most recently had lidocaine shots and topical ointment. He also has started to take Lipitor and Diovan within the last 2 months. Could the rash be caused by these medications and is it serious? Thank you.

I developed urticaria a few months ago due to a reaction from antibiotic. It was successfully treated with fexofenadine. I no longer suffer with the visible aspect of urticaria but I still get the physical feelings on my skin. I have also developed a persistent dry cough which I have now had for 5 months. Could the cough and urticaria be connected?

There is a spot which looks like a rash/pimple but it s very round and doesn t continue and connect to others it s on its own and it has a dark red/brown/black spot right in the centre. Some are itchy, but most are not. I had this before and it was all over my back and legs and stomach. But it was one different spots on its own. I know for a fact it isn t the chicken pox because I have had that before, or hives (looks nothing like it). It s not like a regular rash either or pimples at that fact. What is this? What can I do to prevent it from happening again? What may be causing it? Thank you!

I ve been dealing with dysbiosis , candidiasis and leaky gut. I am now on a biofilm protocol. For the past two days I ve been getting hives all over my body as a reaction to eating. I am on the body ecology diet and have been following it fully. My face gets flushed after I eat. It happens after eating anything. Could a leaky gut get so bad that anything gets through and causes a histamine reaction??
