The Cause Of Allergies Is Accompanied By Fever?
I am 21 years old. Want to ask, it’s been more or less a week I have allergies, accompanied by rashes only on the right and left arm. Shortly before I saw the doctor, my body got a bit feverish, when I checked the temperature was 36.8. when I have finished checking up to now my body is sometimes hot at certain hours, sometimes normal again. I also regularly take medication from the doctor, and he said it was allergic. If allergic, why can prolonged fever? Then how to overcome it? Thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a rash on the skin of the arm accompanied by a fever may indicate an allergic reaction. Usually, if a complaint appears confined to the skin area of the arm, this allergy occurs due to direct contact between the skin and the substance that triggers the allergy, for example latex, certain soaps, certain creams, or other substances (in the medical realm, this condition is called allergic contact dermatitis). Allergic reactions that can appear in the form of redness, rashes, blisters, itching, burning, peeling, swelling, and so on. Not infrequently, complaints due to allergies are infected secondary by bacteria so that it gets wet, festering, and makes sufferers experience fever.
Not only are allergies experiencing secondary infections, rashes and fever that you feel may also occur due to other triggers, for example Singapore flu, dengue fever, chicken pox with secondary infections, measles, other infections, insect bite marks, and so on.
Without checking directly, it is certainly not right for us to ascertain the cause of your complaint, let alone give it treatment. Therefore, if your condition has not improved after being treated by a doctor, you should check back to your doctor or dermatologist so that further treatment is given. If a systemic infection is suspected, you may also be referred to a specialist in internal medicine.
Initial advice from us:
Improve your personal hygiene, and the environment in which you live
Drink plenty of water
Get more rest
Take paracetamol as a fever reliever
Eat more regularly
Live a healthy lifestyle
Keep yourself away from substances that are vulnerable to make you allergic
Hope this helps ...
