Ive been diagnosed as having a contact allergy to Carba Mix,specifically Diphenylquanidine. So I'm supposed to eliminate direct contact wherever possible. How can I find clothing, shoes, and other products free of Carba Mix?View Thread

Hi I am 67 years with cad I have several stents and recently had surgery on my carotid artery. I have never had high blood pressure but since my first heart stent in 2002 I have been taking Metoporlol xl 25 mg 2x my pressure readings are always good when I go to my doctor(s) ranging from 110/65 to 130/70 never too much higher or lower. In the last 4 months I have had 2 very strange high blood pressure attacks where my pressure went to 220/110 - one was 10 days after carotid artery surgery and they attributed to the baroflex receptors being irritated they put my on medicine and then took me off several weeks later pressure too low - for three months normal pressure then the other day very sick went to er pressure back to 200/100 - blood - brain scan - cardiogram normal sent me to kidney specialist all tests normal within a few days on meds normal pressure- now too low again doctors reducing meds- the peculiar thing is that both times before having these weird attacks I ate at a vegetarian Indian restaurant. I think I had a reaction to something in the food is this possible has anyone else experienced this.
This is freaking me out because with no other explanation I don't know what is happening in my body that would cause this.
I was 17 before I learned that you should be able to breathe through both your nostrils at the same time. I thought it was normal that one was clogged and one was open. So I have always had problems with my nose. Now, for the past six months, I have had this really bad phlegm problem that is causing me to cough and strangle on all the mucus that accumulates in my throat.
Taking Musinex helps me cough it out although my throat feels very raw and sometimes, I start to vomit. I have used something called Throat Coat, which is a tea with natural ingredients that soothe the throat. I would rather, however, eliminate the problem that requires my throat to be soothed.
This is extremely taxing on my throat. I know I am not always sleeping very well because I wake up strangling in the night. I sleep with my head elevated, I drink plenty of water and tea. Reading the posts has alerted me to the problem of acid reflux.
It does affect my speaking as my voice can be so hoarse, and I cannot sing as well as I used to. I am going to try the suggestions I have read. But what I really want to know is other than the one person who has gone to a doctor on the East Coast/associated with Yale, has anyone gone to a doctor who has actually helped them?View Thread
Every year at this time in N. Michigan, I develop severe itching of my shins and groin. Gold Bond offers a little relief. 3 days ago I crushed the middle finger on my right hand. After 18 "temporary" stitches I was put on the antibiotic Keflex. Just 3 days later, NO ITCH!! This is my first relief in a month!View Thread

I have made an appointment to see a dermatologist, yet the appointment is in at least a week away. At the mean time, I am not questioning what doctor I should see, because I could have an allergic reaction to something, lymph node problem, or skin problem.
3 weeks I changed a hair-conditioner, and at the same time I have started wearing a new full-face/tightly fit helmet for biking. However, my outbreak started developing SLOWLY last Wednesday after 8 PM after done washing my hair. My right outer ear at the tip and a few spots of my scalp started itchy, not too seriously. The second day, Thursday, the entire right ear became itchy and more spots on my scalp. Then, my left ear and more spots of the scalp, as well as the skin part behind the ears adjacent to the hair line. Then, down to the right neck, then the left side as well. Then, the itchiness expands towards the front neck.
The ears have had tiny blisters, and they have been very swollen with burning hot sensation. The neck has had irregular raised red shapes rash, be them dots, lines, or patches. I couldn't see what's going on with my scalp, but could feel bumps all over. This past Monday (been 5 days since the outbreak), the "bone" or should I say the harder sturdier part of the skin behind the ears hurt a little when pressed. I also found a soy bean sized bump on my rear right side neck, which I am not sure WHEN it grew...but I just felt it there now. You can see it the picture where the raised area on my neck.
Yesterday, my entire head, ears, and neck were so very itchy every second that I felt like cutting them off. I could not sleep at all last night. The itch was so constant and persist. I have seen some allergy doctor in the past for different areas of allergic reactions on my skin, yet none of them could decipher what's going on with me.
I went to see dermatologists with similar skin reactions, yet they couldn't tell me what's going on with me either.......
With all my past experienced mysteries with allergy, skin problem, and what's not, I don't know what to do...
I couldn't get a close-up to take an ear photo, but anyway. The ears have blisters, unlike the neckView Thread
