I stayed at three hotels I noticed bites days later. I was told they were bedbug bites but when I checked my bed room I didn t see anything. I did not continue to have new bites either. However, I have stayed in a hotel again and the same bites are aroused and itching do you know what it could be? Could I be allergic to my sex partner? The welts are only on my arms and wrist.

I need help!!!!! My 10 month old daughter s eyelids are red and swollen (eye itself is clear). They are itching as well because she is rubbing them nonstop. she is also running a fever between 101-103. This is the 2nd time in a month that she has had red swollen eylids. The peditrician gave steriods and benedryl and the eyes got better. The fever only lasted 1-2 days but her eyes were swollen and red for over a week. But, 3 weeks later, it s back. Please help. We have seen E.R. doctors, Clinic Doctors, and two peditricians and they have all said something different from allergies, infection, Cellulitis to strep rash. The last Peditrician we saw that gave the steroid and benedryl stated that it was caused by strep throat. Again, the steroid and benedryl helped but now the red, swollen eyelids have returned. Please help. Note: she has no other symptoms other than decreased appetite, and sometimes loss of sleep (probably from itchy eyes)

Sir

I am a 21 year old. I have been suffering with wrinkles and rashes on glans for the past 1and a half year. I saw a physician who tested my sugar levels ( which came out to be normal). He then said that this might be due some allergy and recommended flutibact gel which i applied for about 3 months and allegra 120 which i had for about 2 months. Around 1 year back, this turned into a skin infection and the physician recommended Candid- b cream. I applied that for about 3 weeks and the infection was gone completely. But the wrinkles (Or rashes)are still there.earlier the rashes were confined to the bottom of the glans Only but now they cover the whole of the glans. I have never any pain, itching or any sort of uncomfortable feeling while urinating or otherwise. Currently the whole of the skin on the glans is loose and the only problem I face is while removing the foreskin which kind of gets stuck on the loose skin but still there is no pain. Please advise
