Yes: Tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 with Codeine can cause histamine and other mediator release from mast cells and basophils. True allergy is possible, but direct mediator (histamine and others) release can cause skin rash, itch and hives.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
