Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • What drug helped most to get rid of rash?
    Antihistamines did not help my itchy rash from this drug. What else can I use or get from my doctor?
  • I am allergic to pencillien and sulfa what antibiotic can i take and not get tendom and muscle aces?
    I use a cane because I have tore tendom in both feet.
    I have to be on a antibiotic everyday.
  • How long does redness last after picato?
    After 3 and a half weeks, I still have a huge red splotch on my face where I applied picato gel according to directions from my dermatologist. I'm very worried that it will be permanent. I had a huge water filled blister the morning after my first application of the gel. I used it two more times as directed. After a week, some of the redness was going away but I've seen no more improvement in the past two weeks. I'm still scaley, rough and red.

    Has anyone else experience this? I went by the doctors office the first morning and was told it was as expected. I've called back and been told not to worry. I see the dr in two more weeks, but for now, I'm quite upset that permanent damage has been done. I was not warned at all that this could happen. The photos in the medication packaging led me to believe that in 3 weeks, all redness would be gone. Info needed for sure. Please let me know. Thanks

  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
  • Rash from eating kale
    I ate kale for the first time on Monday. I only had a small bowl of fresh mixed green salad, so it wasn't entirely Kale. By Tuesday, I had a small rash on my left hip. I ignored it at first. Thursday evening, I decided to eat a large kale salad with other veggies and salmon, all of which I have eaten regularly aside from kale. Friday morning, my entire body was covered in the same rash that appeared Tuesday. I went to the ER. The doc said it was some type of allergic reaction. The ONLY thing I did/consumed different was the kale. I can't find much about it's reactions, though.
  • Sphingomonas paucimobilis: the interesting infection (1 response)
    I'm no medical expert, nor am I some marvelous gifted writer so first and foremost, please forgive any errors of my report.

    Clinical Aspects

    I'm not exactly sure when I contracted this bacteria or how, but on 04/14/2014 I went to the doctor for what I called "a bruise on my leg that had been there for months and had'nt healed" I saw Dr. F Magno of San Benito medical associates in Harlingen tx. I told him that my odd bruise is now hinted with green and yellow color with dark black round spots in its middle as well as what seemed like wide open pores. He ran both swab skin test on the area as well as a blood test. He gave me a general antibiotic, as well as some medication for the ringworm I was also fighting. After that he said they would call when the results came in and not to worry because "more than likely its a minor bacterial infection seeing how the bruise is on the shin and the source is probably minor shin splints"

    Well a few days later on 04/19/2014 I got the call from San Benito Medical associates in Harlingen, Tx telling me the results were in. I had Sphingomonas Paucimobilis.The nurse didn't tell me anything more than "its a bacterial infection and we would like you to come in as soon as possible"

    So i decided I would do my own research before making the 20 min drive into the city and spend $30+. WebMD, MayoClinic and others had nothing. I searched web pages and scientific journals and found little that a lay person like me could comprehend. I did find 47 reported cases since 1993. 47 cases/ 20 years didn't look good to me so i went in.

    Upon going there D.O Kanaan was the physician who read me my results, now ive been seeing her as my primary physician for the last 5 years. She lets her patients know everything she can about their diagnosis and treatment, good and bad. She's always on the ball and never gives you room to doubt her care. However this time was different. She stared at the test result papers blankly "Yep... you got it... and i got a list of approved medications to give you... uh, lets put you on Ciprofloxacin no penicillin in that so we don't have to worry about your allergy..." with this I knew she didn't know much about this so I told her what I found on the internet and that got her asking questions but we came to a dead end. Just as I was leaving she asked "what kind of specialist do i send you to if the antibiotic doesn't work?" i looked her in the eye and said fearfully "I don't know doc, I was hoping you would".

    Personal Aspect

    Well its an ugly bruise, had it for months, it was hurting a lot when i bumped it at work, so i looked at it and it was green and yellow. I showed it to my manager and they sent me home to go to the doc.

    i dont know how long i had it but ive been more ill that usual the past few months with sore throat, ringworm, stomach virus, cold sores, everything spreadable that was around me. I've got 3 more days left of antibiotic and its not clearing. I dont know what to do. Is there anyone who can help? am I currently alone? I'm scared.
  • Skin rash in diclofenac potassium
    After a car accident in 2011 I took Diclofenac for back & shoulder off and on for about a year. During that time I developed random spots usually on my arms and legs that itch severely and sometimes get infected. I still suffer from the itchy spots and I am DESPERATE for a cure for my agony. I haven't taken the medicine for over a year but the itchy spots still come and go.
