- Acne while taking diflucan
I've been taking Diflucan for three weeks for an uncontrollably itchy rash across my entire chest. The itching is 100% better and the rash 75% better, however, I now have large, hard, cystic acne on my cheeks and chin and all across my jawline. I will take the Diflucan once more next week then report back on the acne. BTW I am 52 years old and occasionally take Allegra.
- Constant tiny pimples and worse after taking lantus
I finally made a connection to my skin issue. I have been using lantus for nearly 6 or so years now and I mostly always have some sort of raw acne on my face. I had it prior to Lantus as well, but it seemed it I could somewhat tell what set it off.
Anyhow, I recently had ran out and used Novolin 70/30 until the other came in. During the use my sugars were better and my skin seemed to clear up a bit. So, I get another bottle of Lantus and less than 1 week of use I had a blister on my foot and my face, all at once, was nearly covered in tiny rash-ish like tiny blisters. They don't clear up with acne medicine and there are at least 2 new ones every morning. I watch them develop throughout the day as well. I have kept using it bc I don't want to waste it and bc of this my face has stayed "blistery" and I feel infectious.
Whether it is related or not I also get very large, painful and destructive cysts on my face as well. I was told by my doctor that it looks like staff, but I never got them on my face before Lantus. Kind of makes a bit of a correlation to me.
Does anyone else experience these issues?
- Bactrim causes severe side effects (1 response)
I get bladder infections on a regular basis. I do not have a doctor so I end up in the ER every time. I normally go to the same ER but not all the time. I have been prescribed medications like Cipro and Bactrim. Cipro usually knocks out the infection but I always get another one.
For the last three years Doctors have been prescribing me Bactrim. In the last two months I had three bladder infections and took Bactrim for ten days seven and three. I didn't realize the medications themselves would harm me as well. Now I have severe abdominal pain every single day. I did some research on Bactrim and discovered it can cause several different kinds of stomach problems. I have been in pain for two months straight non-stop.
I finally discovered that the Bactrim killed both the good and bad bacteria in my body and now my digestive system is off balance. I went to a natural food store and bought some probiotics. It helped relieve some stomach pain after four days, but if I forget to take it one time it comes back. I think something is wrong with me but not exactly sure what. When I get a doctor next month I will update this article.
I just want to say that Bactrim has severe side effects, I DO NOT recommend taking this drug. Cipro is better in the long run.
