This is one of the entries where I really start sounding like one of those rheumatoid old farts in the emeritus country club wheelchair holding forth on his lumbago, grippe and shingles… but I really need your collective help.
Have any of you ever heard of a delayed reaction to an allergy skin prick test? Except the reaction wasn’t anywhere near the site of the test itself? I ask because the right side of my face has broken out in a rash that is now on my eyelids… and I’m itching down my legs as well. And as many bullshit ailments as I’ve had, I’ve NEVER broken out in a rash. Staph? Sure. Kidney stones, dysentery, you bet. But never a prickly, hive-like rash.
Two things: this happened about 48 hours after that skin allergy test on my back, but my back is fine. And I’m on that anti-fungal Nystatin (oral) for thrush/candida, but had been on it for days before the test.
Many Internet searches have revealed nothing about this particular problem, although the same keywords keep popping up, so it feels like I’m not crazy. And we’re in transit, thousands of miles away from our doctor.
Anyone got something – or someone – who leaps to mind?
