From this study (1 day ago):
I really believe we are missing the mark on my 8 year old son. He has been sick'like since he was 4 months old. He is being treated for ADHD/Aspergers/Allergies, but he is NO better. Now, he has petechiae around his eyes.
I'm at a loss. He has been cleared of Pediatric RA. Now what?
From this study (7 days ago):
Had been taking Trazodone for 2 years, changed manufacturer 2 weeks ago with sudden onset of symptoms of full body itchy, raised, red rash. Ranitidine and dyphenhydramine help relieve itching for short periods of time but rash remains.
From this study (1 week ago):
