    Do we have any Doctors (even better probably a Dermatologists) on the directory

    I have stalked with my father since I was a lad and together with my Dad, my son Tom has stalked with us since he was very young. And whilst very keen (verging on obsessive) stalker Unfortunately he suffers from asthma and excema and is allergic to deer 'in the skin' hi's body reacts violently to contact with a carcase and he suffers really bad itching patches and his eyes swell up dramatically under normal conditions even using surgical gloves. He can just about cope with a gralloch (with gloves etc) but during the rut last year his reactions whent off the scale, and with this years rut coming up I could do with some advice to keep him as safe as poss. Perhaps antihistamines etc.

    Thanks

    Nic

    Is it the same for all deer species? Is it just deer he seems to be alergic to?

    Go to your GP. He'll refer you to Derm. Under the NHS it's all free - thank god otherwise i'd have been put down by the family years ago, tho i think the NHS are trying very subtly at the moment . If you see the Derm they'll skin test him and know what they're up against and be able to prescribe the appropriate treatment. I've had hayfever since I was a nipper and they'e refined the treatments over the yrs to the point where i am able to stalk on medication with no probs. I wouldnt be happy if any DR/Consultant prescribed treatment without seeing the patient - and i've seen soooooo many over the past 20 years ,

    Don't mess about with internet advice. Get a medical assessment via GP. The body becomes sensitised to allergens such as deer hair and dander. And each reaction gets worse. Anapylactic reactions can kill. In the meantime keep him away from dead deer. A friend of mines son had similar problems, had a desensitisation course of injections and is fine now.

    Theres two GOOD bits of advice, we in the UK have the best national health service in the world ,use it.

    Have you thought of how you would feel if some Toilet attendant on here was to give you what you thought was excellent advice of some lotion or potion which was to end your father just how would you feel and the other person involved ,your always told never to take any one Else's drugs so why would you take someone Else's advice on a medical matter .

    Its a Doctor you require and a referral to a Dermatologist or a Allergy Specialist. Not a toilet attendant or a comic singer .

    My son has also suffered from Chronic Asthma and similar allergies since childhood but no excema.

    It's been a real drawback up till recently best peak flow around 250-270 mark.

    Now at 18 he is being treated with adult medicine things are starting to look up for him.

    As said best to seek medical advice as there are that many medicines on the market.

    It's just a matter of finding the right one.

    Kind Rgds, Buck.

    The above is correct in going to your hospital. I have alawys a ashma suffer'er being allergic to dog's, which is a sxxter being in this sport but since i moved out of the city to God's part of the country its improved so much. When in the city my mrs started to suffer really bad with breathing and itch throats, she as you wood expect off to hospital for checks and tests, they must have done about 250 types of tests on her for reactions it was amazing what they founf she was allergic to dogs but not dog hair there saliver from when they lick to clean. House dust so up went the carpet down with oak floors and tiles etc and certain seeds and nuts. They told her after each attack she has the next one will always be worse. She also suffers from sorrisisis which inflames really bad if she consumes to much ale which affects the liver the affects her as it stresses her body but she is allowed every now and then off the NHS to free sun bed but the best cure for her is the sun.
