Hello,

Since when do you have this symptom ?

Have you been out doors / used a new cosmetic product ?

Do you have any known allergies ?

Regards,

i have nka to food, drugs, or seasonal. I have a nice tan from the nice weather in the beginning of April so i haven't been wearing make up. The only thing applied to my face this morning was Lubriderm lotion after washing it with Neutrogena soap. No new foods introduced in past 72 hr., no new laundry soaps or dryer sheets, no new body soaps, shampoos or condioners used as well. Symptoms started at 5am this morning with itchiness to my face, ears,neck & top of thoracic area. After itching & scratching off & on for about 30 min my skin turned a sunburn red, got very hot to the touch but no evidence of any rash or bumps present (then or now) I have no other abnormal symptoms to complain of.

Hello,

This looks like an allergic reaction to something, this can be pollen or dust or any other material.

You should try taking an antihistaminic agent like Cetrizine or Allegra and apply Calamine lotion over the area.

If this does not help you then you would be better advised to see a doctor for an evaluation.

i know you can aquire allergies at any time in your life. I'm outside everyday with my children between all of their sports, my daily run, yard work, swimming, ect..With the high pollen droppings the last several weeks i've had no symptoms of allergies what-so-ever, believe it or not, i'm no longer allergic to Poison Ivy! I did take Benadryl with effective relief with in 30 min. I was really just wondering if this could be a side effect to an underlining condition
Expert:  Dr.Saurabh Joshi replied 5 years ago.
This is most probably an allergic reaction.

And as benadryl was somewhat effective, this points more in favour of an allergic reaction.
