I'm not sure if this is allergies something else, so hoping for some responses. this has went on for approx 2 years, it started with both my inner ears and throat itching, mainly on the right side of my throat and ear. I went to my doctor about it and he said he didn't see anything in my ears that would be causing them to itch, my throat was reddish looking, not sore though, he prescribed lozenges thinking it was thrush, this did not do anything . now to the really weird thing, my right nipple itches also, it has ever since all this started, I had a mammogram, nothing was found, breasts are fine, but on occasion, my right breast will get a golf sized reddish looking spot on it and start itching also, it will continue to spread around my entire breast and itch profusely, red, itching and feel like it has raised bumps on it, I have tried fungal creams, hydrocortisone creams and finally white vinegar on it, after a couple of weeks or so, it will start to go away and everything will subside except for the itching on my nipple, any suggestions as to what it could be, I'm running out of options, so far this year I have not gotten the rash around my breast, but I do still have the itchy throat, ears and nipple. thank you for listening. Oh I do take 2 or 3 benadryl tablets every night when I go to bed, it seems to help some with the itching but not that much.
Well, allergic reactions can present themselves in various ways. My allergic reaction to peanuts shows itself in a flu-like virus, which is quite rare. The fact that it is an irritation in the throat definitely increases the likelihood that it could possibly be an allergy.
You are stepping in the right direction by speaking with your doctor. Once they figure out what it is, they can help you fix whatever your problem, no matter if its an allergy or not. I'd recommend that you consider getting some allergy tests done too.
Also, if you thinking it is an allergy, discovering the irritant is key. Make that the point of your focus. Or even if its just something mildly bugging you, you can avoid it then.
Best of luck and hope you feel better soon!
