I have lots of different food allergies: wheat, walnuts, peanuts, potatoes, apples, corn, soy, peas, carrots... I also have major respitory allergies too, about 2 pages worth. so I won't list them all, but the worst one is birch.

And I have this rash on my face from an allergic reaction that started almost a month ago now because someone decided to kiss me after having a big drink of who knows what... It was itchy at first, but then that died down, but it always lasts a long time, 1-2 months... as you might imagine, i don't get a whole lot of time without this rash, and it effects me deeply... I just need to know if there's a way of getting rid of it faster. It looks like this one is going to last another month. I think it's a combination of hives and eczema, but i thought hives should go away faster. Maybe that's just for the lucky people...

And of course, if anyone has any suggestions about my allergies, i'm more than happy to listen. i'm afraid to eat anything at all these days... :(

  • Hi,If you're looking to get rid of allergy rashes quickly, take anti histamine medication as soon as you see the symptoms. However remember that, antihistamines cause side effects such as nausea, headache, vomiting, and constipation. Alternatively , you can apply hydrocortisone cream to the rash. You can take a oatmeal bath as well. You can buy oatmeal specifically for bathtub use at your local drug store. Jimmy
