No, maybe a little yesterday night. Face is swollen. Rush was as medium size bumps, but right now is flat and cover large areas but some small bumps.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Is the rash on the legs and arms as well? How about the stomach or the hands?

Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

What he has are hives or urticaria. But the medication given to him will not adequately cover this. They are usually intensely itching and they will come and go within 24 hours.

There seems to be no signs of bed bugs or other causes of this.

Usually we prescribe a course of prednisone for cases this severe.

What did you guys think it might be or worry that it might be?

it's very itchy. And we do not have a bed bags. He never had an allergy before and I was worried if it's not infections.
He stated, he has a stomach discomfit. Please advise, it can be food poisoning.He s
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

It's possible that it's food poisoning but it could also be that he had a small stomach flu or viral bug since he had the sore throat as well. But I don't believe they are related.

As for what to do, he will need stronger medication if the itching is bad, prednisone is a steroid that's taken by mouth and that's usually what we recommend. He can take benadryl at higher doses if he can tolerate it, up to 200mg per day and that could help.

But I don't see this being connected to any infection based on the info you have provided.

Do you recommend to go to walking clinic today and ask for prednisone, and how long it will take rush to go away.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I think that would be a good idea since the other medication isn't helping.

With the prednisone it should start going away day by day after about 3-4 days.

Thank you very much doctor, kindly advise what cause it can be.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

There are several causes for this, stress, allergic reaction, food allergy, viral infection, or it can happen if he touched a chemical is body reacted to. It's always hard to determine what the cause is.
