I want to know few more things.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of allergic etiology is more.
But I want to know few more things before concluding this as allergic.
So please let me know
1. Do you have history of allergy in the past?
2. Do you have any skin lesions in hands along with itching?
3. Do you feel more dryness in your hands?
4. Is this the first time you are feeling this itching or you had similar itching in the past?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

My son had a small red itchy bump at the edge of his bottom a few days ago. We thought it was a bug bite. He scratched it and it got bigger and scabbed over. Now it is itching more, has a red area around it, and he has a few more similar bumps near it (also itchy). No other bumps on his body. Any ideas?

My 4 year old son was stung on the top of his ear this afternoon. That area has turned purple. Is this normal? Or a sign that he might be allergic? I don't know if I should take him to the doctor or just ice it. What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Doctor,
Early morning I sneeze continuously almost 1-2 minutes.after that I feel very uncomfort and my nostrils gets blocked.
Only after 2-3 hours I could be able to have the normal position. What is all about this and what should I do to get rid off from it.
