This patient had an allergy to fabric conditioner, I felt. There was a rash. However, when you see a rash and somebody complains of itchiness, you must always check the airway, you must always check the mucous membranes, any abdominal pain, any confusion and to rule out anaphylaxis. Patient with a straightforward rash can go to a GP for a further examination in an urgent care centre to rule in, rule out any serious consequences of an allergy. You need to tell a patient that if their condition changes between the present and when they next see a healthcare provider, they must raise the alarm in terms of their airway and any further swelling, any tongue swelling, and swelling at the back of their throat.
