Customer Question
I pulled out my...

I pulled out my Shamrock plant 9 days ago. grasped the foliage (which was dried out) and cut off all the foliage. Within about 4 hours my hands started to itch. The only relief if hydrocortisone 1% cream. says "maximum strength". Cold towels on my hands when I try to go to sleep and continued use of Fexofenadine HCL 180 mg (2 tabs 12 hours apart) but none of this completely eliminates itching. Now I have hives on my wrist (a patch of 3" by 4" - about 9 hives). Hives 3 to 5 behind my ears. and itching on my scalp, top of foot and top of my arm. What can I try to get rid of this itch. I believe it's directly related to the oxalis plant I worked with.

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

Levothroxin for thyroid and fluoxetine been taking these for over 12 years. Each drs appt the up my thyroid med. Now at 175 mcg.

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

I have a severe reaction to mosquito bites and the fexofenadine hcl 180 mg tablets work well (only 1 tablet a day)

it sounds like you have had a bad allergic reaction

you can take benadryl 50mg at night time

but you really need to see a doctor

who can put you on a course of steroids to help decrease inflammation in your body

thank you. will it go away by itself in a few more days?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

it could go away

or it may stay like this until you get on a course of steroid therapy.

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.

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.
