Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • Doctors stated that the rash is benign but it has been itchy for over 5 days. Pains subsided after 2 days of taking the Panadeine F. I suspect that I may have been allergic to some ingredient in the panadeine as my eyes would itch and water a few minutes after taking the tablet. I have not treat the rash thus far as it is beneath the skin.
    N.B Symptoms vary in everyone as my entire household was infected and we each recovered at different stages.


  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • HER2/3+ stage II


  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • I am being treated for mental illness and anxiety. I have moments when i am just drenched in sweat. I have no energy.
