- What is the mortality rate for septicemia
A single sleepwalking episode. Recent termination of cigarette use.
- 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?
- 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.

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.

From this study (10 months ago):
recurring cellulitis infection? Was hospitilized twice. 1st time left leg was infected, 1.5 weeks later was hospitalized for infection in right leg. Treated with Clindamycin both times and the infection cleared up. redness, swelling and warmness to the tough have all came back on my right leg. It started off small and slowly got bigger over time. skin is inflamed but not raised. Doctor said maybe Erythema Nodosum, but it is not itchy at all and there are no bumps or other rash like symptoms. It feels like an infection. both times I was hospitalized lasted for 4 days. I was given IV antibiotics there and then sent home on 4 days of antibiotics the 1st time and 1 week of antibiotics the 2nd time, all clindamycin. After both incidents, the redness returned a few days after the antibiotics were finished. Starting off small and subtle, fading in and out over the next couple days and gradually growing in size and migrating down the leg from just below the knee to a few inches above the ankles.
Don Smith on May, 12, 2014:
You need to go have Ultrasound. I had your same symptoms and turns out to be blood clots in the left leg. Started as pain in left leg in a 8-10 inch straight line above knee, inner thigh. Was warm to the touch, and tender to the touch. But only along the vein. Redness did not appear for a couple days. By then my leg was stiff and seemed solid and swollen. The pain then went below my knee. Go get Ultrasound immediately! Blood clots can kill you.
From this study (2 years ago):
My doctor prescribed me this for 2 weeks, starting this medicine I immediately started getting leg pains at night (this is not something I have ever had before) 800 mg Motrin was not helping with the pain, after the first week I called them and told them it was becoming unbearable they told me "this happens sometimes" & to stop taking the medicine and drink lots of water with no other explanation to me about what the antibiotic was causing, I did what I was told and I stopped taking the medicine, two days later I broke out in a rash, this went away fairly quick. It has been about 3 weeks since I stopped the medication and I am still having pain especially at night, the doc prescribed me NAPROXEN (NAPROSYN) 500 MG TAB TABLET to help with pain, it's not helping at all, I am not getting ANY sleep. The doctors have run some test last week, my liver enzymes were up a bit so they tested me for Hep A, B, C they were all negative, I don't know if this antibiotic could have raised my levels and caused damage to my liver, I hope not, but they ran some more test and I should be getting my results soon.
Morgan on Dec, 10, 2012:
Female, Age 18. I have been perscribed Clindamycin for a tooth infection. The last two nights I have been waking up and experiencing extreme pain in two joints. The first night it was my knee, it felt like I had twisted it severely and the pain did not subside till twenty minutes later. The next night it was my wrist, same amount of time and same level of pain. I went back to bed after the pain subsided. I woke up in the morning, took a shower then started to feel an extreme itch in my hands. I have red tiny dots (rash) on both of my hands, every spot of palms, but not the other side of the hands. The rash also goes down a little further to my wrists on the sides of my palms. I've been putting cortizone cream on it, but it won't go away. It's extremely itchy, burns, and feels like my skin is being stretched. Any thoughts? please?
