How can you tell if a rash is caused by an allergic reaction?
My doctor told me to start "rotating" things such as for a few days use a different lotion, then a soap, then a laundry detergent, etc. Also foods, medications and fabrics may need to be rotated.
Your best bet really is to go get allergy tested.
You will probably have little red bumps all over your body an if its something you ate or got into your blood stream into small cuts, you will have them on your tongue also.
It is an allergic reaction if it is sudden and keeps spreading over hours. Then, you look at what you have eaten, worn or done differently over the past few days. Taking benedryl can help alleviate some of the reaction, but once you've been exposed to a "toxin" it takes a few days to pass it. Oatmeal baths and Aveeno anti-itch creams help. OTC 1% cortisone cream can also help, but not for long term. Avoid spray on "--caines." Major culprits for me are soaps with bleach, makeup, lotions, new clothing/sheets/towels and new meds. Try putting a cup of white vinegar into your final rinse cycle to get the soap residue out.
if you get it after exposure to something you are allergic to. Like avocados or an animal. Read More

Allergies are the result of your body "fighting off" what it mistakenly believes are harmful chemicals. In a normal result, your antibody cells destroy viruses and bacteria which invade your body and could harm you. In an allergic reaction, a harmless substance - usually something you eat or something you touch - sets off the same reaction from your antibodies. This causes an easily-recognized set of symptoms in pretty-much everybody. I have put them in… Read More

I ate some chocolate and then went delirious and called up a bunch of people to tell them how much they suck and then called this guy and left like 5 messages on his cell phone why did i?
That is not typical behavior, but could have been set off by a few things. If it was chocolate related, there chocolate might have been bad or expired and caused a form of food poisoning. You might have had an allergic reaction, too. Otherwise, it could have been caused by something else, such as from your surroundings or other foods you might have eaten. Read More

A rash is one of the side effects, but I'd think about any other drugs you might be taking before suspecting that one, unless it's the only one you're taking. If you're taking any kind of antibiotic as well, that would be the more likely culprit, even if you've never had allergic reactions to it before. The only way to tell if it's the OxyContin is to stop taking it for a day or two… Read More

Why is medication not allowed to be infused into the blood transfusion set while a blood transfusion is going on?
Every blood transfusion carries the risk of allergic reaction, to anaphylactic shock, even if blood type is perfectly matched. If medication was also infused along with the blood, and the patient had an allergic reaction, it would be impossible to tell which sustance was causing the reaction: the blood? or the medication? Remember that every transfusion reaction can be deadly. As well, some meds may break down blood components. Therefore, never inject IV meds into… Read More
