Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that in my opinion you should seek medical help because allergic reaction generally subside completely after taking medicine , since you say that your eyes are still itchy and you have a clear pocket of fluid over your eyeball its a matter of concern and need to be seen by medical specialist to decide whether higher doses are required or the duration of treatment needs to be prolonged .

Take care.

I have a very sensitive patch (burning itch) @ the base of my spine, top of butt crack. There is a rough "basketball skin" patch running down inside my butt cheek. Also between my thigh & scrotum & above the penis in the pubic hair is very red & itchy.Blue star ointment gives the only releif but burns terribly.Have tried otc antifungals, benadryl, neosporin, hydrocortizone...you name it, at wits end. Dr. said yeast infection use otc antifungal creme, already know that dont help. In agony please help.

My husband had a double hernia repaired almost two weeks ago and now he's breaking out in a rash that's very itchy. Benadryl seems to help, but doesn't completely eliminate the problem. Could it be a reaction to the internal disolvable stitches? We've ruled out everything else he could be reacting to.

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..

My 9 year old daughter has a rash on her upper and lower legs right after bath. She didn t wash the area because it started bothering her in shower. She has no fever or sore throat. I used cortisone on rash and gave her Benadryl. What do you think could be the source of this rash.
