From this study (3 days 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 (1 week 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.
