    What is dermatitis medicamentosa?
    My brother have this rashes, swelling and eruption of skin on his lips.It is really serious that a little touch can cause it to bleed. Now he’s suffering with itchiness and pain because of this. This sickness already appeared more than 5 times in different time intervals. We already went to the doctor and he stated that it is just a medical drug eruption or what they call DERMATITIS MEDICAMENTOSA.
    What is this sickness?
    How can we cure and avoid this?
    Hope you can help me…asap
    Thank you

      Dermatitis literally means inflammation of the skin. Add medicamentosa and it means due to a medicament.
      Your brother’s doctor is a bit remiss in not being more helpful, if it is literally dermatitis medicamentosa he should know what medicaments your brother is taking.
      If he is taking any can he stop taking it and find a different treatment?.
      Although apart from conventional medicines hair dyes, food coloring or additives, shampoos, lotions, oils, supplements, soaps detergents, and herbal products all may cause drug reactions in some.
      He needs to see a dermatologist to find exactly what is causing a reaction. Try and notice if any particular food, drink, substance provokes it.
      Sometimes scratching and picking causes a type of dermatitis.

      Auto immune diseases can cause skin rashes as one associated with wheat intolerance.

      It is impossible to tell you exactly what is wrong and how to cure it.
      Short of eliminating everything you can and then reintroducing things one by one to see if there is a reaction there is not much more to say that might be helpful.

    What causes allergy?What is the best way to alleviate allergic reactions?
    I have a friend who experiences ithcy feeling on her skin n when she scratches it swells a lot

    1. Operator

      Allergy is a local or systemic inflammatory response to allergens. Local symptoms are:

      * Nose: swelling of the nasal mucosa (allergic rhinitis)
      * Eyes: redness and itching of the conjunctiva (allergic conjunctivitis)
      * Airways: bronchoconstriction, wheezing and dyspnoea, sometimes outright attacks of asthma, in severe cases the airway constricts due to swelling known as anaphylaxis.
      * Ears: feeling of fullness, possibly pain, and impaired hearing due to the lack of eustachian tube drainage.
      * Skin: various rashes, such as eczema, hives (urticaria) and contact dermatitis.
      * Head: while not as common, headaches are seen in some with environmental or chemical allergies.

      Systemic allergic response is also called anaphylaxis; multiple systems can be affected including the digestive system, the respiratory system, and the circulatory system. Depending of the rate of severity, it can cause cutaneous reactions, bronchoconstriction, edema, hypotension, coma and even death. This type of reaction can be triggered suddenly or the onset can be delayed. The severity of this type of allergic response often requires injections of epinephrine, sometimes through a device known as the Epi-Pen auto-injector. The nature of anaphylaxis is such that the reaction can seemingly be subsiding, but may recur throughout a prolonged period of time.

      Hay fever is one example of an exceedingly common[citation needed] minor allergy — large percentages of the population suffer from hayfever symptoms in response to airborne pollen. Asthmatics are often allergic to dust mites. Apart from ambient allergens, allergic reactions can be result from foods, insect stings and reactions to medications.

      Basis and cause

      The exact cause of the IgE malfunctions that result in allergic reactions are not always apparent[citation needed], however, and several arguments[attribution needed] from genetic-basis, environmental-basis and intermediate proponents exist with varying validity and acceptance.

      [edit] Genetic basis

      There is much evidence[citation needed] to support the genetic basis of allergy. Allergic parents are more likely to have allergic children, and their allergies are likely to be stronger than those from non-allergic parents. However some allergies are not consistent along genealogies with parents being allergic to peanuts, but having children allergic to ragweed, or siblings not sharing the same allergens.

      Ethnicity has also been shown to play a role in some allergies. Interestingly, in regard to asthma, it has been suggested[attribution needed] that different genetic loci are responsible for asthma in people of Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, and African origins. It has also been suggested[attribution needed] that there are both general atopy genes and tissue-specific allergy genes that target the allergic response to specific mucosal tissues. Potential disease associated alleles include both coding region variation and SNPs. Caucasian people seem to have the most asthma[citation needed].

      [edit] Relationship with parasites

      Some recent research has also begun to show that some kinds of common parasites, such as intestinal worms (e.g. hookworms), secrete immunosuppressant chemicals into the gut wall and hence the bloodstream which prevent the body from attacking the parasite. This gives rise to a new slant on the “hygiene hypothesis” — that co-evolution of man and parasites has in the past led to an immune system that only functions correctly in the presence of the parasites. Without them, the immune system becomes unbalanced and oversensitive. Gutworms and similar parasites are present in untreated drinking water in undeveloped countries, and in developed countries until the routine chlorination and purification of drinking water supplies. This also coincides with the time period in which a significant rise in allergies has been observed.[citation needed] So far, there is only sporadic evidence to support this hypothesis — one scientist who suffered from seasonal allergic rhinitis (hayfever) infected himself with gutworms and was immediately ‘cured’ of his allergy with no other ill effects.[citation needed] Full clinical trials have yet to be performed however. It may be that the term ‘parasite’ could turn out to be inappropriate, and in fact a hitherto unsuspected symbiosis is at work

      Lupus is an auto-immune disease that can cause inflammation of the skin, joints and sometimes organs. And auto-immune disease is an disease that causes your immune cells to attack healthy body cells rather than intruders, as it normally does.

      The good news is the lupus is very rarely fatal – only in extreme cases when the disease is left untreated. None-the-less this is still a scary time for you, your sister and you family, especially if you don’t know what to expect. I am sure your sisters doctor, probably a rheumatologist is helping her develop a treatment plan to deal with her symptoms – most commonly mild to severe joint pain and skin rashes (often across the nose and cheeks)

      Without a doubt your sister will need to undergo some lifestyle changes that won’t always be pleasant, but in time her symptoms will likely subside and she will be lucky enough to have a sibling and family as a support system to help her out.

      If you’re curious about what it’s like to be in her shoes google “The Spoon Theory.” I myself have lupus and it’s the story I use to explain the disease to others. While online resources can be great, there is a lot of false or impertinent information out there on the web, so just be careful about what either of you read, and stick to what the doctor has to say. Though finding a support group can be a great coping mechanism. Good luck, I wish you both the best!

    Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or Rheumatoid Arthritis?
    My symptoms are: Extremely painful to walk, rashes, blood in urine, Anemia (had to get iron infusions), headaches, extreme fatigue, ect. I seen a doctor who did some x-rays, blood work & a physical exam. She recently called me & told me from my lab results came back & said i have either Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or Rheumatoid Arthritis. She said my blood work showed alot of abnormalities & even infection. She wanted me to start on a steroid right away. She put me on (10 mg pills of Prednisone) for 10 days until my follow up with a Rheumatologist. Okay my question: What is Lupus & Rheumatoid Arthritis?
    Are these 2 illnesses simular? She will be calling me back within 5 days with the other test results. Has anyone personally experienced this? She said my illness is treatable but not cureable. I’m still pretty young & this is a shock to me & i’m having a hard time dealing with not knowing what i’m dealing with i guess my new doctor will be able to answer alot of questions later.
    Thanks for the advice i will go look there.

    When will my guttate psoriasis go away?
    I developed guttate psoriasis over two weeks ago after having strep throat. I was prescribed Dovonox cream by the doctor about 5 days ago and have been using it daily but my rash doesn’t seem to be getting any better 🙁 can anyone tell me how long it usually lasts? also wondering what the signs of improvement are because my rash started off as small spots but now it has spread into large but flat red areas of skin and I don’t know if this is a good thing or not! Any help would be really appreciated as it’s really getting me down now and affecting my confidence and social life 🙁 please helppp!!!

      Psoriasis is an auto immune disease /chronic condition. It’s not a virus, it’s not a contagious disease and genes are involved.

      Meaning..there is no cure for psoriasis only treatments that can help and you might have to deal with it for the rest of your life.

      You had the genes needed to get psoriasis symptoms and strep just triggered it. Stret did not cause psoriasis by itself.

      Dovonex cream is not a steroid, has no cortisone in so it’s not a strong treatment. Usually dermatologists prescribe dovonex to patients who use cortisone creams 5 days a week and dovonex is just for the weekend.

      Don’t expect for the patches to go away soon with this one. Go back to your doctor and ask him to prescribe Dovobet or Protopic or anything else proper for psoriasis with cortisone if you want to make the spots disappear soon.

      Guttate psoriasis aka small dots is the first stage. As the spots are getting bigger and transform into patches they get stronger and need more time to disappear. The bigger the patch the more time will need ( doing a treatment ) to go away.

      I really wish that you won’t get another flair up in the future.
      Other things that trigger psoriasis : Stress, anxiety, climate, fever, cold/flu, viruses, other conditions, toxins from food and other products we use everyday.

      What is psoriasis? Psoriasis is caused from over working genes. In normal people skin cells reproduce once every 40 days. If you have psoriasis the skin cells reproduce once every 24/48 hours. So the dead skin cells ( flakes ) stay on top of the skin making layers. This also causes inflammation on the skin ( red patch or spots )
      In other words it’s like Dandruff.

    Is there a chance this is mild anaphylaxis?
    About 6 months ago I woke up one morning (at 27) with a sudden allergy to gluten, I would become covered in hives and ezema. It was very sudden and I had never had any type of allergy or skin condition before.

    Now, months later, I am very careful with what I eat but the other day thought, to hell with it, it was my daughters bday so I had a cupcake, after about an hour I was having trouble breathing and swallowing, not life threatening or anything, just very uncomfortable. I suffer anxiety and thought it was a bad panic attack, despite the fact I wasn’t having any other panic attack symtoms.. Also, I didn’t get any ezcema, rashes, hives etc from it.. Strange??
    My question is, does it sound like anaphylaxis? If so, will it get worse or will it just be like this forever? If not, then what is the cause? Like I said, there were no other symtoms, no vomiting, nausea, rashes etc just the tight throat.
    Thanks!

    1. Shauna

      I would suggest getting to an allergist, or at the VERY least gettin an epipen. Because yes, that sounds like a severe allergic reaction. As odd as this is, while hives are often indicative of an allergic reaction, anaphylaxis can actually occur without hives. Odd, yeah?

      However, anaphylaxis can quite easily be deadly. Allergic reactions can shift from not life threatening to life threatening between one reaction to the next – doctors can’t predict when it will happen. However, having a reaction that involves hives and/or breathing or swelling in the throat do seem more likely to have this happen.

      Please, do take this seriously, as that could easily have been a deadly anaphylactic reaction, if you were unlucky. If you don’t have an epipen on you when that happens, you may not live long enough to make it to the hospital, or even until an ambulance arrives. The throat can swell shut quite rapidly, within a minute or two for some, and may need immediate care.

      Also, one last reason you need to see an allergist: you don’t have a gluten allergy, although it’s obvious that you are allergic to something that is present along WITH gluten, like perhaps wheat.

      ‘Gluten allergy’ is actually a bizarrely inaccurate term used in the medical community to refer to an auto-immune disease because the disease involved the immune system AND involved a food component(gluten): Celiac Disease. Hives, throat swelling, and other typical allergic reactions are actually not a reaction associated with this condition.

      There was a even recent international conference to standardize terms for Celiac Disease and gluten conditions because there were so many misunderstandings of what the terms in use actually meant (even misunderstandings by doctors!). Gluten allergy does not seem to have made the cut, but many doctors still use it and cause us all a lot of confusion. :-/

    I have reaccuring spells of extreme joint followed by entire itchy skin I have had neg lupus,RA,ANA, test
    I do not have any rashes on my body but I do have a slight butterfly rash on my cheeks I do not take any meds that are causing this. Has anyone been diagnosed with a disease or disorder that sounds like this. All doctors I have ever seen believe it is an auto immune disorder but cannot figure out which one i have been battling this for 8 or so yrs and it is continuing to get worse every year.Lately it is untolerable. I have been give vicoprophen for the pain but I need answers and cannot get hooked to this kind of drug. Plus the med only works for an hour or two.

  10. JENNY B

    i have severe joint pain in my wrists and fingers, its getting worse everyday and they “crunch” when i move
    them, ive had joint pains in other parts of my body all my life but never this bad. im only 34, ive got young kids, its getting harder to do stuff everyday, whats wrong with me? im very scared! and yes im seeing a doc soon, just waiting for blood tests to come back.

    Do you know someone with Systemic Lupus?
    Lupus is an auto-immune disease that causes inflammation throughout the body. Your own immune system attacks your internal organs such as kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, and central nervous system. It also attacks your joints causing arthritis like pain. Other symptoms include butterfly shaped rash covering the cheeks and nose, hair loss, extreme fatigue, anemia or blood clotting issues, pleurisy, and ulceration in the nose and mouth.

    What is the best course of action to get rid of contact dermatitis?
    The rash looks like an irritant eczema which would normally (not always) be expected to be caused by contact with an irritant substance or organism. However, I have no idea what. Is there a way to ID these rashes to avoid their cause. No pets. Location: shins. Or could the rash be caused by a bacterial illness? Not psoriasis by appearance, which also introduces both auto-immunitiy dieseas and a skin response to a pathogen attack.
    It looks like Dogger Bank Itch. Left shin above the sock level. Don’t wear shorts and I avoid dogs and cats and it is recent so it has not come from the countryside and there are few insects about (hence the mystery). Got a cold virus (so I suppose it could be antibodies, toxins or something?).
    Its not scabies, ringworm, flea bites, psoriasis, hand-foot-mouth disease.

    Could conceivably be an unprecendented allergic reaction of a common anti-biotic?

    I do not get allergies normally, ever of any kind.

    How do I complain about the services I received from a so-called dermatologist?
    There must be some “Board” where malpractice can be reported to. This dr. paid no attention to my needs, she just glanced at my rash and told me it was atopic dermatitis and to change my soaps…prescribed me some topical ointment and sent me over to her “in-house” vitamin person who had a product line available immediately. I personally think she was more interested in selling her products than caring about the rash. PS…went for a 2nd opinion and was diagnosed with dermatomyositis which can be terminal if related to a cancer (of which I am…and the 1st derm…knew this)

    1. isageegee

      this lst doctor you went to was she an M.D. board certified
      dermatologist……?

      It is obvious that atopic dermatitis and dermatomyositis are
      different skin disease……atopic dermatitis is usually caused
      by allergies and I believe dermatomyositis is an auto immune
      disease.

      Maybe you should get a third opinion by visiting with a
      rheumatologist or endocrinologist. good luck
