What is a Peanut allergic reaction?
Some people are allergic to peanuts. It's not an uncommon alergy and also not uncommon for this allergy to be extreme to the point of lethality. For these people, exposure to peanuts -- eating them or even rubbing them on the skin, can prodice fast onset allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock. The major problem here is that so many foods contain peanuts that it's easy to come into contact with the antigen without knowing or expecting it. The reactions follow the typical allergic pattern: * Rashes and hives. * Swelling, including of the exposed surfaces, including mouth and the airway. * Possibile interference with breathing, and unless this is resolved promptly, death from asphyxiation. Treatment is also the same. Antihistimines, epinehprine, maintaining an airway if necessary, steroids, etc.

Can you take naproxen and allopurinol together without having an anaphylactic reaction?
An anaphylactic reaction has nothing to do with taking medications together. Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction caused by your body's response to a certain substance. When you eat or take something you are allergic to, you could have this sort of reaction where your mouth and throat swell up and block your breathing. That is what an anaphylactic reaction. There are no known drug interactions between naproxen and allopurinol. Unless you are allergic to one of them, you can safely take them together. Take them with food because they can both be hard on the stomach.

Asked in Veterinary Medicine
Your dog has swollen eyes and is shaking what do you do and what is it?
Take the dog to the nearest veterinarian without delay. Although there are a number of reasons that dogs may appear to have swollen eyes or to shake, the symptoms described are most consistent with those of an allergic reaction (to an insect bite/sting/other). Severe allergic reactions can be fatal and can develop very quickly. Your veterinarian can provide appropriate diagnostics and treatment.

Can you have an allergic reaction after eating blue crabs?
You certainly can. Besides peanuts, allergies to shellfish are one of the most common food allergies (by shellfish I refer to both mollusk (oysters and clams, etc.) and to arthropods (lobster, shrimp, crab). The allergy can range from mild -- rashes and hives -- all the way up to anaphylactic shock and, in rare cases, death. You can verify this with your doctor. Depending on how strong the allergic reaction is, for extreme cases, getting this tested and verified is a good idea, as they can prescribe "allergy kits" that, in an emergency, can save your life. Or you can be very careful not to eat these animals again. Unlike peanuts, they aren't used in a lot of foods without saying so. Note that if you're allergic to blue crabs, that may mean the allergy extends to all forms of crab, shrimp, lobster, crawdads and crawfish, langostino, etc.

Asked in Staph Infections
Could a red rash be a symptom of staph infection?
A red rash could be a symptom of a staph infection, although without examining you, noone can make that determination. Most commonly, staphylococcus infections will result in an abscess, boil, or folliculitis. Just a rash is more likely to be a streptococcus infection or another reaction, such as to a medication or an allergic reaction. If you are concerned about a rash you have, please be evaluated by your physician.
