17 yr old daughter has mono and morbilliform rash. Amoxicillin ceased Wed. Prednisone and Benadbut spreading body rash & severe itch. No fever. Help?

17 yr old daughter has mono and morbilliform rash. Amoxicillin ceased Wed. Prednisone and Benadbut spreading body rash & severe itch. No fever. Help?

Rash: Using amoxicillin with mono frequently causes an itchy uncomfortable rash. It lasts a while. The prednisone may not be the answer. I would use Zyrtec (cetirizine) and add Benedryl both if needed. Drink lots of fluids and rest. Bathe too. Mono can last 2-3, weeks and it is miserable. It is a lesson learned about over using antibiotics. Sorry you were the one to experience this. It will get better. ...Read more

I have a non-rash, full- body itching condition which no local doctors have been able to diagnose. I have consulted numerous local specialists.

Skin biopsy, CXR: Much testing may be required to find the answer to this symptom. If blood work is normal, I recommend a skin biopsy and a chest x ray as the next steps. I also feel that evaluation at the nearest medical center by a medical (as opposed to cometic) dermatologist is in order, if possible. With diligence and a caring MD the cause is likely to be found. ...Read more

Rash that is all over my body. My palms too. Itches sometimes and gets really red after shower? Barely see it most of time.

Histamine: This is relatively common. Certain immune cells that are located in your skin are releasing histamine in response to heat. The histamine causes the blood vessels in your skin to dilate and get a little leaky, causing the rash and itch. You could try taking a non-drowsy antihistamine at least an hour before exercising. Try to keep as cool as possible. Maybe spray yourself with water periodically. ...Read more
