Does that itch at all?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
it does
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
My entire face and a bit of my arms are itching

That's definitely an allergic reaction to something--maybe new soaps or detergents

Nothing too serious though

For now I suggest oral benadryl or Claritin and topical over the counter Caladryl lotion

That should clear this up in a day or two

Please let me know if you need any more information

Is this ok?

How many should I take and for how long

That's fine and you can take one or two tablets every 6 hours as needed

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
