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?
  • 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

  • What is the treatment for moderate hyperthermia upon initiation of trazodone
    prior use of alprazolam for insomnia after husband's death, long term use at low dosage. I wanted to get off Xanax as it seemed I needed better sleep than my dosage of 1.5 mg at bedtime was enabling. I also have myasthenia gravis and take pyridostigmine which helps with the muscle weakness. I stopped Xanax and took the trazodone only for two days. My new PCP's PA said I did not need to wean off the Xanax and culd just switch. Not so much... Today I had a slight fever for me. I will not use the trazodone again as I have had two pretty sleepless nights and really need some rest to be able to function Monday. Will the feeling lousy and slight fever abate quickly upon not taking the trazodone any more?

  • 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.
  • Bladder infection while on mestinon
    Had gradual lest side weakness. Everyday living is difficult. I was referred to cleveland clinic. Dr there has had me go through several tests. My tilt table test showed increase of heart rate and blood pressure. So he suspects I have POTS Postier orthostatic tachecardia syndrome. Still more tests are scheduled . He put me on genaric form of Mestinon. And within two days of taking the medication I got a bad bladder infection. I'm wondering if this is going to happen again. Bladder infections are terrible!
  • 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.
