Hi, I couldn't help respond after reading your post. I have eczema and had the same problems you described. Approximately two years ago, I contracted a steph infection from working in the hospital. I had this infection for a least two years. I went to several specialist and they all kept saying it was contact dermatitis and gave me anti inflammatory creams and steroids. After becoming very weak and itchy all over, I couldn't take it anymore. I finally drove to University of Michigan to see another allergist, THANK GOD I DID. I was finally diagnosed with a skin steph infection. He said it was caused from me itching from my eczema that the bacteria entered my skin and it's not uncommon for doctors to misdiagnose. I was given bacterium antibiotic cream to put on the affected areas and also bacterium antibiotics pills. I was told that the doctor should have known that there was an infection going on because my skin was warm to the touch and also my c-reactive protein level in my blood was high. It does sound like you might have an infection. Treat it with antibiotics, bacterium da for a month or so and you should find yourself feeling better. Good luck

Again, do not suffer like I did. Ask your doctor to write you out a script for bacterium DS. You have nothing to lose. If the itching and redness start to go away within a week or so, then you know for sure.

I advise you to get a test done to find the allergen. if you find the cause of your allergy you might me able to avoid the causative agent. you can always consult your dermatologist for the same.

I will be using this cream, ongoing to treat an unidentified rash as a antiitch treatment on mainly upper body. My concern is using a topical steroid over a long period of time. The product is triamcinolon 0.1 o/o cre clay. The Drs. instructions are to use 2 to 3 times daily for 2 weeks, then take 1 week off using a hydrating crm, for 1 week, then continue the treatment. Do you agree with this program? I am 86 yrs. of age Thanks, Garth Showalter6-+00

Hi

Can you tell me what the following symptoms might be from?



heart rate 135

shortness of breath

High Neutrophils



My sister aged 23, has always had breathing problems off and on since her teenage years and we think she is allergice to pine nuts however she has never been diagnosed as having allergies. Recently she had been kept overnight for her rapid heart rate and tested for thyroid (ok), ekg (ok) among other things which I assume were the standard tests. In the end they recomended she see a cardiologist. She will today.



Can you tell me what those symptoms might be typical of?

Helo sir,
I am 29 year old I had typhoid when I was about 15 years and doctor prescribed me some tablets .I had severe fever just one day night and on the same day I was having severe itching on the glans penis and by the next day it became sores.The next day itself I again consulted the doctor and he changed the medicines.He said that might be because of allergy to sulphar or something.That sores became worst and took around two weeks to heal leaving many marks and uneven skin.What type of allergy was it?or was it a symptom of something else like any STD?Is there any way to remove that marks on the glans penis?Please help.becouse of shyness I never discussed these with a doctor

I am 20 years old, & yes, I understand the under age drinking policy, which isn't something that I need to hear when answering about this subject. Occasionally(doesn't happen -every- single time), when I drink alcohol I get chest paints so severe that it hurts to breath, & I feel this tightening in my chest, AND in my neck muscles, where it hurts to turn my head. This can happen after one drink, a few sips. After about 20 to 30 minutes,the pain seems to diminish and I can't even tell that it happened at all. Could there be an allergy to certain brands of alcohol, or the color of alcohol? I think it tends to happen more with dark colored alcohol brands. Could it be some sort of heart burn or acid reflux?
