What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more

If You Have Had An Allergic Reaction To A Food, How Long Has It Take To Get It Out Of Your System? 7 Days Out & On Prednisone & Antihist.

I am wondering how long my symptoms will persist. I am taking prednisone, Zyrtec, Benadryl and Pepcid to control getting short of breath. I had been to the ER and received 40 mg of prednisone. The next day I felt fair, the following with small dose of prednisone, I felt awful again. Dr. has me on 40 - 60 mg a day for 3 days, 40 for 3, 20 for 3 and 10 for 3.

Just ready to get back to normal. It has been exactly one week since I was exposed.

Has Anyone Had The Issue Of Benadryl Not Working For Them All Of A Sudden?

I have been taking Benadryl tablets for the last 6 months for itching caused by food allergies. I am obviously allergic to something that I have not figured out yet. I take 2 tablets and within 30 minutes to an hour all of the itching subsides. Also, I did not have any side effects like drowsiness. My friends were amazed that I could stay awake on it.

The past few times I have taken it, not only does it not take the itch away completely, it makes me extremely drowsy. I sleep for over 8… read more
