I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.

Do you have any associated symptoms like abnormal vision/ weakness at any part of the body? Do you have any diagnosed medical condition?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No associated symptoms, it was hard to keep eyes open when sitting at a convention with many speakers. No medical conditions, someone suggested parathesia
Expert:  deardr replied 2 years ago.

I am happy that there are no associated symptoms. Tingling indicates reduced blood flow or irritation of the nerve of the region concerned. It can be due to diabetes, vitamin or mineral deficiency/ dehydration. Other possibility is strain on eyesight.

As of now - Ibuprofen should give relief. I do not see any need to worry. Few symptoms however should prompt medical evaluation - Severe headache/ weakness over part of the body or face/ loss of consciousness or dizziness.

Wish you well.

Thanks. Bayer aspirin did give some relief, I will try ibuprofen instead . And stay hydrated

I am now experiencing a rash with blisters on my eyebrows and forehead and tingling now above my mouth, and on my eyelid. I presume those areas will come out with rash. I am highly allergic to poison ivy- and the rash kinda looks like that, but it does not itch, just tingles. started taking Zyrtec.
Expert:  deardr replied 2 years ago.
Zyrtec should help to get rid of any allergy component. I would also have Motrin to get relief from inflammation if any.
