Brief Answer:
I would explain as follows:

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for asking on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would explain that this rash does not seem to be related to your blood pressure or sugar.

An allergic reaction could be the cause of this clinical scenario.

If the problem persists, I recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam, a complete blood count and allergy tests.

The high blood pressure values, could be related to the rash or to the discomfort, but they do not cause a rash.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above issues.

Hope to have been helpful!

Feel free to ask me again whenever you need!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri

Brief Answer:
Yes, Benadryl is safe in this situation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again!

Yes, is it right to take it against allergic reactions.

So, I would recommend continue taking it. But if the problem persists, allergic tests should be done in order to investigate for the possible cause of allergic reaction and avoid it.

Hope to have been helpful!

Best wishes,

3 weeks after using Efudex cream on my nose, I started getting hives, no where in particular on the bottom side of my forearms, on the top of my feet to the extent that I wanted to scratch my skin off, lumps & bumps would appear. The area would welt up and inflame in no particular place. If I stood all day my quads would inflame welts or lumps would appear, my knees would ache so bad I couldn t stand. If I rested my arms on chair rests for any extended period of time the pressure points would welt up. The same would happen to my feet if I rested them on chair runners. If I bump myself or even get a sore throat it hurts way more (heaps) more then it did before. Pressure points are the worst. Seems I cant lean on anything for to long and it starts to ache. One particular time I swelled ached and itched that bad a doctor injected pethidine in my leg. The injection hurt so much and around the needle hole swelled up about 10- 12cm and raised up 3mm and was hot. Today 6 years later I still get mild reactions, aches, no welts but little red spots about 4mm in diameter might appear for no particular reason, say if some sparks from a grinder hit my under arm it will get itchy and hive up a little. My legs get restless at night from standing a lot. Even typing this my fore arm muscles are aching. I m not saying it is efudex but I had lots of test and its like they gave up and put it down to efudex. I don t wish to put up with this, so any advise would be great. Thanking you heaps Mark

Woke up with one red itchy welt yesterday, then this morning 5 more on legs. I’m thinking bed bugs but don’t see any sign of infestation. Could this be something entirely else like measles?

I seem to have a spontaneous contusion on the vein (or artery?) just to inside front of the shin bone above the ankle. I don't recall bumping anything, at least hard enough to cause a welt , and a bluish swollen line as developed about 4 inches...

I have a welted bite on my left chest, probably from a bite of unknown insect. It is red, raised and is slightly painful and itchty. Is this serious and how do I treat it. Already cleansed with soap, water and peroxide and placed neosporin on bandaid. Welt is starting to recede.

Quarter size welt shows up behind the ear a week ago along with cold like symptoms. Went to the doctor and was prescribed antibiotics and a steroid. Welts have spread behind the ear and up the hairline and first initial welt has started to kinda bubble. The cold symptoms are not better
