|what was the cause of a skin rash.
Many times rashes like the one in the picture are
misdiagnosed. In this picture the child was
treated with cortisone because he had a history
of food allergies. A long treatment of
histamines was also given.
You will never believe what it was:
After going to various doctors who said that it
was something caused by a plant you touch, a
fungus and even eczema when in reality whats
causing the rash was that the child had been
going to a summer camp and keeping the
bathing suit on after getting out of the pool
caused moist to grow and he got "athletes foot"
behind the knees.
Because the first dermatologist that the child
was taken to prescribed a cream with cortizone
it actually made it worst. After two days of
treating the rash with lotrimin, an over the
counter athletes foot medication, the rash was
completely gone. It never came back.
If you suspect that you are allergic to certain
foods you probably are. Food allergy is not in
your head, it is a serious medical conditions.
Allergies are an abnormal response from your
immune in people with allergies will react
negatively against certain substances such as
mold, pollen, pet dander, wheat, chemicals, and
food products. These are known as "allergens".
An allergic reaction occurs after a person is
exposed to an allergen, either by inhaling it,
touching it, or ingesting it. Once exposed, an
allergic reaction results.
The most common symptoms of an allergic
reaction to allergens that are inhaled or touched
include sneezing, skin rashes, hives, itchy and
watery eyes, itchy and runny nose, and a general
feeling of malaise. Food allergies can result in
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal
cramps when a food allergen is ingested.
Allergic reactions to insect bites can include
redness, inflammation and pain. While most
symptoms are typically mild to moderate, more
severe allergic reactions can result in
anaphylaxis, which affects the entire body and
can cause shortness of breath, tightening of the
throat, tingling in the extremities, and hives all
over the body. This is a life-threatening
situation that requires the immediate attention
of medical professionals.
