  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • A rash developed on both sides of my stomach, just above the hip bone. It resembles contact dermititis, but i was not exposed to anything out of the ordinary.

    It forms small watery filled blisters that itch, and later form a tiny scab.

    It is only localized to the area above the hip.

  • I've been taking Zyrtec everyday since the beginning of December 2013, I just stopped because I found out it was addictive, my last Zyrtec was on Thursday night, since Saturday I've been experiencing severe nausea and headaches along with itching on my head, I would like to know if these symptoms can be related to Zyrtec withdrawl.
