I have what I believe are hives on only my hands and feet…

Customer Question
Hi I have what...

Hi I have what I believe are hives on only my hands and feet they itch, hurt and my feet and hands are stiff I don't remember anything specific occurring to cause this I did feel sick this week and I do take a lot of medicines on a daily basis ... I just took Benadryl and I guess I should wait 24/48 hours and as long as it doesn't spread not worry?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Not that I know of I don't have any allergies

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

Take ... victoza, phentermine, Wellbutrin, metformin, invokana, liothyronine, topamax, temazepam, nexium I think that's it...

Age 31, yes looks like mix of rash and hives on just my hands and feet and I just noticed the symptoms within last 24 hours
Doctor: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply.

The symptoms you have described of hives,itching on your hands & feet since last 24 hours is most likely suggestive of skin disease known as urticaria.

A hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) occurs in the skin, causing inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become reddish & itchy.

As you have already taken tab.benadryl,yes,you need to wait for 24-48 hours to show its effect.

Also apply cream containing 1 % hydrocortisone.If the area is large then apply Calamine lotion. This will further subside the symptoms. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.

If still after this,the symptoms of rashes/itching persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
