From this study (18 hours ago):
I have been taking ibuprofen 800 mg every 4-6 hours for pain as prescribed by my dentist after extensive dental work for almost a week. I now have a painless rash on my face and getting petechiae on my arms and hands. Could this be from the ibuprofen and should i stop taking it and find another pain reliever. I am type 2 diabetic and have non aloholic fatty liver disease.
From this study (1 day ago):
Itching burning on mainly my feet and lower legs raised boil looking hives and extream sensitivity in my feet
