    You're probably having a reaction to the antibiotic or something. Did your doctor tell you what stage your hemorrhoids are in? Because it matters if they are treatable with a simple ointment or if they must be surgically removed. Also, if you have the option, I'd advise you to get a referral from this doctor and visit a cardiologist. I hope everything turns out well for you and I'd appreciate a follow up on what the doctor told you about it.

      Thanks for telling me that.

      So far I am seeing a Dermatologist, Allergist, Oncologist and Urologist.  The Urologist  scheduled me to see a Gastroenterologist  on Thursday. 

      I did tests that diagnosed me for Urticarial vasculitis and Hidradenitis suppurativa. So, I'll see what comes next.

    Yes, you are allergic to something. What ever it is, is proably causing your flare ups of HS as well. Ice packs usually help with the itching. When I am itching all over I usually get large welps all over my body and have to go to the ER. Benadryl and cortozone creame also may help with body itching.

    I suspect I have this just told sebacous cysts but just had lipo-lymphoedema confirmed whist PCOS & lichen sclerosis have been ignored .Even the ensuing heart failure symptons & a cardiac arrest.There is also hirsutism  for which was given testosterone  in the 1990s .

    As I also have utis acute 3 weekly no longer  being monitored by a specialist I am constantly in a state of anxiety as I feel pain acutely  when touched or having procedures such as the dentist.

    Now sedation & anaesthetic a problem as pulse falls to below 80 &NHS rules against it leaving in limbo  there is pulmonary hypertension  connection as only showing up when had Reveal device[ cardiac]  implanted!

    What can I say I seem to be spending all my time not getting the appropriate treatment  such as research & diagnosis in tier 3 hospital  & to make matters worse  they are not doing the necessary tests as there are some rare forms of cancer in the family !

    As for your itching I found in past it could be the interaction of medications & when you take them - space medications out & examine them for side effects but just discovered can be a symptom of condition - hidradentis suparitivia !

    .In the past the homeopathic have  been of of great help aswell as carefully monitored antibiotics as suspect there is an allergic & immune issue .However just found out lasers may help?! The question is will we get referral if of a certain age with disabilities? As there has appeared to be deliberate delay.
