I am coughing intermittently for about 5 months now, is this an allergy?

I am coughing intermittently for about 5 months now, my doctor advised me to get an allergy test done. Which I did.
The IGE immunoglobin serum test which I made came back with a value of 515 and the laboratory reference value is <65. Does this mean I have allergies- that I am allergic to something? I would like to know if this indicates that there is a problem with me? What do I need to do now? Is there medication that I need to take? I am a 35 year old woman. I never had any problems before. Don't take any medication whatsoever. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanking you and your team ahead of time. Regards (...)

Wearing anything synthetic causes extreme nausea, faintness and beating heart?

I am 67and female. I have always had very dry skin, and at present wearing anything synthetic causes extreme nausea, faintness and beating heart. The symptoms gradually worsen until I remove the offending item(s). The same symptoms occur temporarily if I even touch synthetics fabrics of any kind. A dermatologist recommended Aveena moisturizing cream and prescribed Clobetasone. But the Aveena produced the same symptoms and I had to bathe, flannel and towel it off, and do not like therefore to risk the Clobetasone. The condition has gradually become more extreme over the past couple of months. I cannot even go out, as the synthetic lining all coats have affects me even through the clothes underneath, and feels as if it is burning me. Could I have thin skin? Would extreme dehydration cause it?



I have an allergy for dust mites, now pain in back of head when I cough?

I have an allergy for dust mites and about two times a year the symptoms get much worse. Just like it did two weeks ago. But now when I cough I suddenly have to endure pain in the back of my head at the height of my right ear, but a bit more to the middle of the back of my head.

I added a photo to indicate where the pain is.

It feels like it stings me and then the pain stays for about 20 minutes. After that it slowly drifts away.
It is the worst in the morning and in the evening and it is getting worse by the day.

I am a 19 year old guy.

What is the problem?

I’m a 38 year old male. No real known health issues other than high cholesterol 239 total. I’m 5’8 172 lbs. I’m not a smoker or drinker. Around August and September I started to feel little more tired and legs felt heavy. I started also to have this disequilibrium or off balance sensation during time of walking. Dr said was alergies so he put me on fluticasone nasal spray. Really didn’t help so next was meclizine and didn’t help either. Well on November 4th I went to ER cause urgent care dr thought maybe I had appendicitis. . Went to ER and did ultra sound of abdomen and blood work. Ultrasound was normal and blood work didn’t show any infection so sent me home and follow up with my dr. I did so in 3 days, sent me to gastroenterologist and did a hida scan. Before the scan, I got 2 rashes, small, one on my back and then on mid stomach. My Dr said it was shingles. I was in bed for 2 weeks cause I felt so bad with no energy. Not really any pain. Went to see another dr cause I was so exhausted and tired..no energy. He looked at my rashes and said it wasn’t shingles.. did more blood work.. tested be for HIV etc.. came bk and i tested positive for HSV1 virus of 13.54..I am still very exhausted and tired and seem to not be able to get any energy.

My son has ADHD, Allergies and Colon issues. He is often sick but doctors don’t seem to be concerned?

My son is 11 years old, 4’11” weighs 69.8 lbs, is currently diagnosed with ADHD, his IGE is elevated and has been taking allergy shots for mold, dust mites, pollen, trees, grasses, cats, dogs, etc. His igA is present but about half the level it should be and his igG was also low. His A/G Ratio is 2.3, his Bun/create ratio is 21. His pneumococcal numbers from vaccines were low so he recently had to redo the pneumococcal shots (both the 11 and the one they give to the elderly). His urinalysis results showed mucousUrine- Present(A) andAmorphous Crystals -Few(A). Biopsies of his colon showed “a microscopic examination was done. No pathologicchangeswere noted in any of the biopsies, but there was a nonspecific finding in the random colon biopsies. Rare glands contain a few intraepithelialeosinophils in the absence of any interstitial inflammation ”

All of this has been over a number of tests. He also has been on a gluten free diet for a year as it seemed to give him severe stomache aches. Anything we should know or are missing with all of this. Each Doctor individually doesn’t seem too concerned but my son is often sick and missing school.

Is my new girlfriend allergic to me, I mean in a medical way?

Hi, my new girlfriend has been breaking out with hives after contact with me (kissing, touch). I live in Canada and she is in Oregon, we’ve spent time together on two occasions in the last month. She has reacted within a few days of contact with small round bumps developing on her shoulders, her back, and her bottom lips. I have never experienced anything like this with any other partner. We have no ideas of what could be causing this. Could she be allergic to my saliva? I take no medications, nor do I use any strong soaps or products. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

I had an allergic reaction while taking a shower, I am not allergic to anything or any medication?

I’m a 53yr old female on Nov 16 I had an allergic reaction while taking a shower. I was in a facility where nurses were available. I got to their station and passed out. When I came to they gave me benedryl and had called the paramedics. I am not allergic to anything or any medication. Since this episode 2 weeks ago my energy level is low and I fell fatigued most of the time. They advised me to see my GP. Thinking this was an isolated incident, I held off making an appointment. While at home tonight I was in the shower started to itch and get blotchy. Feeling the same symptoms as 2 weeks ago, I turned the water to ice cold. Got out of the shower and scratched and put lotion on. What is going on?
