Nose Is ALWAYS Red - Allergy?

Aug 31, 2014

My nose is ALWAYS red. Some days worse than others but it's always red. There are also very thin, subtle red veins on the bridge of my nose (I have a "hawk" nose), again, some days worse than others.

I also have a lot of allergy problems. Went through a period of time when I had three sinus infections, one after another. I was diagnosed with allergy induced asthma as well although I don't take the montelukast I was prescribed.

Is it possible that my nose shape has anything to do with this? Or is the redness a skin problem and the allergies environmental?

Honestly, the redness bothers me more than the annoying breathing problems.

Nasal Allergy, Polyps - Alternate Runny / Blocked Nose

I have suffered with all year round hay fever / allergy symptoms for over decade. I have had several operations and procedures .. turbinate widening, polyp removal, bones straightened .. some repeated efforts to no real avail ...

The side effect has been that my sense of smell is non existent .. I just put up with the alternate runny / blocked nose etc etc

The one development of late has been strange, when in the shower I often clear my nose rather robustly as its the best way to blow in an unrestrained manner .. I have now noticed that I suddenly get a very sweet flowery taste / smell when i do this .. My daughter jokes that its brain fluid .. hopefully not.

Anyone with any ideas as to what it might be?

Allergy :: Allergic To Lip Products?

I am 18 years old, and I have never been allergic to anything in my life. As part of my nightly routine, I've always put on lip balm before bed. However, late last year, my lips started to get more dry and chapped than usual, even itchy. They felt like sand paper and often developed tiny bumps. If rubbed hard enough, the bumps would produce a clear liquid. The edges of my lips also sometimes felt very raw and red. These symptoms would last around a week.

At the time, I had been using just plain Burt's Bees Lip Balm for many weeks. When I got the symptoms, I used a bit more of the balm than I usually did, thinking it would work for dryness. When nothing seemed to be working, I stopped using it altogether. In time, my lips healed, and I switched to Softlips lipbalm in both vanilla and peppermint flavors. I showed no reaction from their usage for about a month. Then, I started getting the same reaction that I got from the Burt's Bees Lip Balm. That was when I figured I was developing an allergy to lip balm. Over time, I also realized I was getting the same reaction even faster from lipstick and lipgloss. That meant I was allergic to all lip products across the board.

I began researching into the symptoms and the ingredients in lip products, especially ones that commonly produced allergic reactions. With that knowledge in mind, I've tried many other balms these past months, including ones by Blistex and Kiss my Face. I'm even allergic to plain Chapstick. At first, I would not show any symptoms at all, but they would eventually show up within a few weeks, sometimes days. I even tried alternating the balms every night, which worked slightly but I would eventually get the reaction again. Nowadays, I only wear lip balm every few nights because I can't stand having chapped lips, but never multiple nights in a row. Even then, there's always a chance of my reacting to it.

I haven't been able to pinpoint the exact ingredient that I'm allergic to, and I'm hesitant to spend any more money to try more products. I haven't changed anything about my diet, makeup, facewash, mouthwash, or toothpaste, so I am very certain that it's the lip products. After my research I've also found that other people have had the same problem.

Has any product been found that works but doesn't trigger a reaction from people with my allergies?

I've heard that Vaseline is possibly the only solution, but because of my research I've been staying away from products with petroleum and petrolatum in them. Should I try it out anyway?

Food Allergy Following Virus

Following a throat bug/allergy in the spring, my throat became irritated by certain foods. I also had a bad cough, which turned out to be hay fever, and settled when treated. I was subsequently IGE tested and was diagnosed allergic to all items tested; tomatoes, onion, sweet pepper, lemon, kiwi & strawberries. Symptoms are an unpleasant tingling/burning mouth which can take 24 hours to settle. Antihistamines do not solve the problem. I have been prescribed Zantac/Ranitidine which I don't think helps. During the week I am very strict with my diet, and the symptoms settle. Then at the weekend if I relax and inadvertently eat a small amount of anything unsuitable, and enjoy a glass of wine, the symptoms return. Has anyone else had this? any advice would be great, thanks.

Allergy :: Eczema After Swimming

I do a lot of swimming and can't find a decent remedy or barrier for eczema. To be honest I control it pretty well but it flares up to the extent that it is incredibly uncomfortable and it is always the next day after I have been swimming. I then end up taking an antihistamine which makes me drowsy and then has an affect on my training (doing an ironman) for the days that follow. Can anyone recommend anything?

Beer Allergy - Diarrhea For 2-3 Days Afterwards

I never had drinking problems. I drink alcohol rarely, only in special occasions. I was drunk only once in my life, on my brother's wedding. I had started to drink one glass of beer a day. It is my friend recommended me to power up the intake of vitamin B. But every time I drink that glass of beer I have diarrhea for two or three days. Is it possible that I am allergic to beer?

Alcoholism :: Alcohol Allergy - Hot And Itch

I am 22 and I liked to have a glass of wine once in a while.  However, one day I had about half a glass and started to feel very itchy between my eyebrows.  I chose to ignore it because wine commonly made me go a little rosy and feel hot.  However, the next time I had this same wine (new bottle) I had 2 sips and felt this itching again in the same place.  When I looked in the mirror, my face was becoming red and blotchy, and soon covered my entire face (even my eyelids!).  It felt like it was on fire and was clearly a tad swollen.  It eventually spread to my chest.  I tried to cool the areas with ice and twenty minutes later, my skin was fine. At first I thought this might have been caused by this specific wine since the bottle said it contains sulfites.  I tried to have a glass of wine that boasts absolutely no preservatives, just grapes, but the same thing happened off a couple of sips.  This is not a grape allergy.  I commonly eat grapes and have no problem with them.After a week of avoiding alcohol altogether, which was difficult because it was during the holidays, I wanted to see if beer was also off limits now.  Yes, it is.  I had barely finished the neck when I felt the itching between my eyebrows.  Sure enough, within minutes my face was bright red and hot to the touch.I am not any kind of heavy drinker, but I'm still young and I would like to be able to drink with my friends!  This is very frustrating for me and confusing to say the least.  I'm not sure what to do, and I'm sure a doctor would scoff at me if I came to them with my troubles. I read online that alcohol allergies are rare and rapid onset of any allergy suggests a problem with the adrenals.

Hives :: No Allergy - Only Appear One Place At A Time

My son is experiencing hives that do not itch and only appear one place at a time on his body. They usually last a day and then a new one will appear and the old one is gone. He says they are tingly and sometimes hurt. This started 2 years ago and lasted for 4 weeks and never appeared again until last week. Both times he had been swimming and was bumped in the face. The welts then appeared a few hours later. He was tested for allergies and found none. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Worried it may be an immune disorder.

Allergy :: Redness Itchy Bumps On Scalp

Started three days ago, I can feel that I have several redness bumps with itchy sensation spread around the scalp and majority are at occipital and temporal bone area, and two on the right and left frontal hairline. They stated from inion and back of both ears then go up. These bumps are really itchy and moderately swollen. I never had this kind symptom before. I have dandruff since I was litte until now, sometime it is seasonal. I eat unhealthy sometimes, I live outside so.

My wife and I thought these bumps are allergic reaction for some reason, but we could not figure it out where it come from. I took one pill for allergy last night, and they are smaller when I woke up today. Kind of smaller, but I am not sure will it come back or something else. So, recently I ate a lot healthy food. Oh, I forgot to mentioned that it is all happened after I eat a lot mung bean soup about three days ago. So, we thought it is maybe some metabolic reaction for part of the reasons. But that's weird to me, there must be something wrong.

Allergies :: Ancient Exercise Regime To Get Rid Of The Flu And Allergy

I was a favourite of the darned 'flu'. We call it rhinitis, hay fever, sinusitis, runny nose, allergy.whatever... I tried it all; Antibiotics/Antihistamines/ cold tabs/ cough syrups,  steroid sprays/ cetirizine/loratidine.. Even tried those allergy tests.. What i realised was that my immune system was too weak to deal with so many things that are around. Such as : Dust, mold, cold, fumes, perfumes,  pollen.. all these things along with the viruses are a deadly cocktail and it was like poison to me,. Killing me slowly... Even going to a friends' house was a nightmare of sneezes, blocked nose and cough.. . So, i did what anyone else would do. look for a cure, desperately..  And i stumbled upon an ancient exercise regime that they used to deal with flu in the old days.. I started doing that.. Its been about 10 years..  Now, I have strengthen my immune system to a point that these things hardly affect me.. I have modified the exercise to fit around my schedule and lifestyle.. And now it only takes 5 mins everyday.. No chemicals, or medicines or hospital not even, natural products, special food, salt-water, steam... etc..

Just sit in a room and get some workout for my airways.. Never looked back..

STDs :: Allergy - Tingling Sensation In The Tip Of My Penis

I'm 28 m and I recently had protected sex with a condom with a girl that I know has a very high amount of partners. I usually do not use condoms (This may have been my 5th times or so) since i've had one partner for 9 years prior. The next day i felt a very slight tingling sensation in the tip of my penis. The sex was very short. The next day(2) it was slightly more noticeable and the day after it was definitely more noticeable not going away all day. By the end of day 3 it seemed to spread a bit down the penis along with a very slight discomfort or tingling in the left testicle. In between the anus and penis possibly had a few tingles on day 4. I'm 4 days in and the symptoms have not passed. It came and went the first 2 days periodically and on day 3 and 4 it seems to be more consistent.  It seems to build up more before I urinate. Relief goes away after i urinate for a short period time. On the first couple days the relief would last much longer. When i woke up this morning I did not notice it as much and then 20 minutes later it hasn't stopped all day. I do consider myself to be a bit of an anxious person but i do not take any medications or anything. Out of the research i've done i've limited the std to gonorrhea or a possible allergy to the condom. However, I do not have any of the discharge conditions. My penis may have leaked 1 drop here and there over the past couple days of urine but that's it. I do feel the need to go to the bathroom a bit more than usual. Thanks in advance, this is the only time in my life I have had anything like this.

Allergies :: Sperm Allergy - Recurrent Cystitis

Yesterday after having intercourse with my boyfriend of a year and a half, i noticed that some of the sperm came in contact with my hand and broke me out in a small rash on the area that was infected. I automatically assumed i may be allergic to my partners sperm and began looking online for answers as i think it might be related to why i get recurrent cystitis. I have been tested for Thrush and UTI's in the past 6 months and also underwent a bladder/kidney scan and a cystoscopy which all came back negative. After that i was completely baffled as to what could be causing me so much pain and misery. I know i don't have any evidence that this could be the cause to all my problems but when i visited the doctor yesterday he said it is a possibility that they are connected some how.

I really just want to know if anyone has suffered from a sperm allergy before who has maybe been affected with recurrent cystitis because of it and if so how you were diagnosed to find out if you were allergic to your partner's sperm and what you did to treat it?
