Hello doctor,

My husband is suffering from unknown allergy for the last 2 years. He has consulted many doctors and has done many tests, but no positive result yet. He takes Allegra or Montec every day; else he gets rashes all over the body. He is also having filaria for over 5 years and takes medicine for that. He has lost his sexual ability completely in the last few years. I want to know if these are all interlinked or to be treated separately. Can you suggest any further tests that can help him in controlling the allergy and improving his sexual competence?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • By allergy, if you mean red raised rashes, then that is known as urticaria. So, that means he is suffering from chronic urticaria and impotency.
  • There can be many causes including thyroid, which can cause both the above issue.
  • Also, rarely Allegra - Fexofenadine can cause sexual dysfunction.
  • Please get the following tests done and send me the reports. serum TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) ultrasensitive, T3 free,  T4 free, DHT (dihydrotestosterone), free testosterone, CBC (complete blood count) with AEC (absolute eosinophil count).
  • Also, ask him if he is suffering from chronic acidity or chronic tooth infection. Once we have reports, we can permanently treat the condition.
