I am 20 years old suffering from pimples,taking atarax but the symptom remains

I am 20 yrs old and i have been facing skin problem since last 5-6 yrs.Small pimple like structures appear in my hands,almost the whole arm.Sometimes it disappears quickly but sometimes it becomes bigger.It does not itch.Also,my skin is a bit rough.Last year a doctor told me to perform a blood test for igE .it is 606 IU/ml in my blood.She told me that other results were normal but my IgE level was too high.Then she prescribed me a medicine(Atarax 25 mg).I completed the medicine course and my skin was fine.But now it has appeared again.Is it due to the hot season or adolescent age?Can t it permanently cured?Please give me the name of an effective medicine safe enough to take.gender-male

Maximum in legs, wrists, fingers, arms Doctor suggested cyclosporin capsules called psorid 100mg 3 times a day for 20 days In addition xyzal which is levocetrizine hydrochloride twice a day Also Atarax which is hydroxyzine hydrochloride at bedtime Plus application of clobetasol gel on affectex area twice a day Ate these safe medicines for a child Noticed a hump like shape developing on his back, just below neck.

I am a 44 year old male. I have seasonal and food allergies. When I eat something that I am allergic to or during allergy season, my lips and the area around them (about an inch or so) turn bright red and itch. Chap stick doesn't help. Is there anything you would suggest that I put on them instead that isn't going to look like I'm wearing lip gloss? Usually it takes nearly a week for this condition to go away by itself.

I have mild cold urticaria and am having a little trouble at the moment with my health that may be linked??? I was thinking food allergy and I see that there are some connections with cold uticeria and gluten intolerance. I have been getting the following symptoms for exactly a year now which are usually after I ve eaten sometimes more than once a day and every few weeks I get a really intense symptoms.. : feel like i need to burp but cant, even after indigestion medication.. if I do burp it is short wee burps and I dont feel relieved at all, my breathing also gets funny and I feel like i m breathing in stuffy air and my throat feels kind of swollen. sometimes difficult to swallow. My face is hot to touch and sometimes i get light headed and a tingling sensation in my face. Can also get very sleepy all of a sudden. Also sometimes i get a bit of a runny nose at the same time but not sure if that has anything to do with it. IT IS STARTING TO CONTROL MY LIFE!!! please can you help. i have been tested for gall bladder, everything is back normal although didn t think it was that anyway. Also been given losec for indigestion but no help.
