Could your condition cause InfectionInfection
Can you answer these questions?
the top of head itch is so severe I feel like someone who is scratching from lice infection. I'd been taking Xarelto for about a month when I noticed the severe head itch. I've also had itch on back but nowhere near as severe as on head. I don't see any rash anywhere.
My doctor prescribed Restasis for my dry eyes after I had PRK eye surgery. My eye is droopy now and the condition is called ptosis. I am wondering when I stop using Restasis if my eyelid will go back to normal.
