All your symptoms are due to Benadryl and Reactine.

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.

Hello,

I would recommend using antihistamines such as Zyrtec daily. I also recommend using hydrocortisone cream for local application.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family...

I ate some chinese takeaway food yesterday and started feeling like my throat was closing up and almost as if I was having difficulty breathing a few hours after eating it. I suspected it may have been an allergic reaction , maybe to the MSG in the food (although I have never had one ever before) I took some antihistamines and it eventually went away. However, I woke up this morning and I have a pretty bad headache, stomach cramps and diarrhea . I m just confused as the symptoms this morning point to food poisoning yet I am not vomiting, and the throat closing points to an allergic reaction. It has now been close to 16 hours some eating the meal so vomiting would have happened by now. It would be great if I could get a response. Thanks, Thomas

I recently just switched to a gluten free diet despite testing negative for celiac disease because my intestinal issues were so severe I thought I could possibly have gluten sensitivity still. But yesterday when I had a BM, I noticed the tissue was light pink after wiping. In the past my internal hemoroids would be bright red blood. What could this be?

Hi I am 23 years old. Two nights ago I ate a lot of oysters and soon after began vomiting violently. After a while the vomit was nothing but pure neon-yellow bile . I went to bed and I have felt fine since. However, I just noticed that I am having pale stools--almost beige in color. Should I be concerned or is this a temporary side effect of the food poisoning? P.S.This has happened before when I ate oysters so I think I may have a shellfish food allergy .
