Sounds like...: Sounds like the assumption is that you're having an allergic reaction to your meds. If so, stopping it should be enough. Can take a while for your body to clear though. Continue anti-histamine. Avoid getting overheated (exertion or hot bath/shower). Can add topical steroid cream.
See doctor if not better 7-10 days after change in meds.
