Customer Question
I broke out with...

I broke out with hives/body rash. Trying to figure out the cause. I went to the urgent care. I was given presnisone taper. Took earlier today and a daily claritin

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No other symptoms. I've had a bad cough that I can't seem to get rid off. But other than that just this rash that starts out as blotches and ends up spreading to my whole body

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

Cough on and off for couple months. Dx with bronchitis and then tx with 2 rounds of abx

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm just worried about these hives that spread, itch and swell. I took prednisone (40) mg today. It worked all day but now rash starting to spread again

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
