Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This can be due to allergic reaction for some insect bite or a nephrological problem. You need to consult your child specialist for the same.
Take care

Hello. My daughter is 18 months old and is suffering from diarrhea, runny nose, watering eyes accompanied with redness around her eyes. This is something she s goes through frequently. Symptoms just started tonight, and based on past experience, she ll have a cough in the next few days as well. We ve noticed also that she seems to develop this sickness when we use our baby sitter. During the periods I was out of work, she seemed fine and never got sick. We re concerned she may be exposed to a toxin there we re unaware of? Or is she just exhibiting signs of allergies?

I am having a allergic reaction to a zit cream. My eyes are swollen, my face itches and there are some hives. I have taken some allergy pills and they seem to help only a little but everytime I sleep the symptoms get a bit worse. Is there anything I can do to help this problem without going to a doctor?

I've been watching my blood pressure. Sometime its normal, sometime not. My pulse also is doing that. This reading is 137/84 and pulse is 45. I was just wondering how lower your pulse can go and be okay? Reading earlier was 139/76 and pulse 110. One of my high ones was 133/94 and pulse 46. I have been taking prednesone since yesterday in a tapering dose due to an unknown allergic reaction under my eyes/swelling. But my blood pressure has been doing the high/normal stuff for some time.

Hi,



My bday party is Saturday, 11/6/10; however, 11/3/10, I had a severe allergic reaction to nuts. I was given steroids, pepcid and benadryl at hospital. I was sent home with 40 mg of prednisone 2x a day or 4 days, 40 mg of pepcid 2 x a day and benadryl 25 - 50mg every 4 - 6 hours. I went to allergist who gave me a script to ween off prednisone. For 11/5/10 - 30mg, 11/6/10 - 20mg, 11/7/10 - 10mg, 11/8/10 - 5mg (end). My question, the "caution category" on the prescription info sheet doesn't indicate if I could consume a glass (or two) of wine on 11/6/10; is it safe to consume 1 or 2 glasses of wine on 11/6/10?
