I'm diagnosed with SLE. Prescribed plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) & naproxen. Took IBprofin instead of naproxen & woke up with a rash. Allergic reaction or something else?
I take celebrex (celecoxib) with no problem. When I take aleve, advil, motrin, I break out in hives. Aren't they all nsaids? Am I alergic?
If I have gotten hives from motrin, and to a much lesser degree aspirin, would I also definitely get them from something like aleve (naproxen)?
I get hives from ibuprofen. Does that mean every type of nsaid causes me hives, or is this a one-specific drug situation usually? Would Aleve (naproxen) be ok?
I've had a few small hives after taking ibuprofen and aspirin. Can I try aleve/naproxen? Never had swelling, breathing issues and don't have asthma.
Uncertain: There is a condition known as aspirin (NSAID) sensitive hives and angioedema in which all NSAIDs (other COX-2 specific ones) may cause the same symptoms. On the other hand some experts consider hives being an allergic reaction to that specific NSAID and cross-sensitivity does not happen. I suggest that you consult an allergist who may perform a graded challenge to Naproxen or other NSAID. ...Read more

See below: Drug-induced edema is rather common and much less of a dangerous side effect than it is a bothersome side effect to people.

Using diuretics along with NSAIDs increase the risk of damaging the kidneys. Tylenol not anti-inflammatory ...Read more
Antihistamine: An antihistamine such as Diphenhydramine (benadryl) can help with symptoms. Hives can come and go for several days. I usually recommend using a once daily antihistamine such as claritin, zyrtec, or allegra, and using the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) when the hives break through. I will sometimes add h2 blocker such as zantac or pepcid, which also act as antihistamines. ...Read more

Can vary: Allergic reactions from taking antibiotics can be an immediate event or can take days to develop. When they take a longer period of time, we call them "delayed hypersensitivity reactions".

How can I tell if my child is having an allergic reaction to prelone (prednisolone) syrup or if his hives from before are just getting worse?
Hives just worse: Prelone (prednisolone) is a med that mimics the stress hormone your body makes to stabilize membranes & stop allergic reactions. It is often give as an oral med to patients who would not like the alternative. A deep intramuscular injection would start working faster to slow the reaction. The oral takes some time to kick in so its common for a reaction to get a bit worse before improving. ...Read more
When I was a child I accidentally drank overdosed on penicillan and had severe diarhhea. Then I developed hives. Is this an allergic reaction?
Possible not likely: Medication allergy is usually an immediate IgE mediated immune response. In this case the hives would have been expected to come out first. Your hives were probably a stress related reaction to the diarrhea and the overdose amount of penicillin. An allergy specialist can do tests to check specifically for penicillin allergy and if negative, you will have access to an important, cheap class of med ...Read more

Vasodilation: Alcohol has drug effect making more blood to be pumped to the skin by dilating blood vessels in the skin (vasodilation).

Can a new manufacturer of the same meds I've been on cause hives or an allergic reaction? Only new med I took was Mucinexx DM. Maybe Mucinexx is prob?
Possibly: If you started a new medication, then it is possible for the new med to cause allergic reaction. Stop using the new medication and see if the hives go away. There are some people who have allergic reaction to generic forms of some medication as well. So of you were switched recently to a generic version, go back to the brand name. I would try the first option of stopping Mucinex (guaifenesin) and observing. ...Read more
Good question: Hives (or urticaria) represent a sensitivity to something dilating the small vessels under the skin, causing a raised pink lesion; if u press on it, it will blanch, let it go it pinks up again. Many causes: foods, chemicals, perfumes, very often stress. Stress can increase acid formation in stomach, Zantac (ranitidine) reduces it. Over 50% of time, one can't find cause.

What is the best antihistimane to take for an allergic reaction resulting in hives and or a rash?
My 2 1/2 year has an allergic reaction to keflex has hives all over body how much Benedryl can I give her she is 28 lbs?
I was given Keflex around 3 months ago for Hidradenitis. I had an allergic reaction and stopped taking it. I've had hives ever since. Why is that?
Not Keflex: HIves is a particular kind of rash, and rarely lasts more than a few days. And any rash due to cephalexin (Keflex) allergy would not last more than 1-2 weeks after stopping the drug. So whatever the cause of your current rash, it probably isn't hives and cephalexin isn't the cause. If you're taking any other medications, you might be allergic to one of them. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

See a dermatologist: Cause of hives? Not always allergy. If it was allergy, then allergy to what? Benadryl is a brand name for diphenhydramine which is useful mainly as a sleeping pill. There are much better antihistamines which will be less likely to make you sleepy. Do not drive after taking Benadryl. If a rash, not hives, no antihistamine will help. Start with a precise diagnosis if possible. ...Read more
