Rashes And Itching After Eating Beef And Horse Meat?
What’s the cause?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition you are experiencing may indeed be a side effect of eating beef and horse meat, or it could just happen in the near future. But overall, among the possible conditions that you experience are:
A food allergy, in this case beef or horse, or a drug allergy.
Insect bites, such as bedbugs, mosquitoes or other small animals.
Other skin diseases, such as dry skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, viral infections, and so on.
So to be sure it would be better if you consult a dermatologist and genitalia. Your doctor will then assess whether your itching is due to allergies or something else. If necessary and available, your doctor will then perform an allergy test, or test a sample of your skin in the laboratory. You will likely be given medication that contains antihistamines to relieve itching.
Meanwhile, apply a cold compress and apply a lotion or sprinkle of over-the-counter calamine powder on the itchy area to reduce itching. Always remember to read the rules of use. Avoid warm baths and reduce scratching as much as possible because by scratching, the itching you feel can worsen and new skin disorders can develop. In addition, avoid eating beef and horse meat for a while until it is clear what is causing your complaint. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
