I had an allergy to doxycycline 4 weeks ago i can't take benedryl and I took prednisone for 12 days and I still itch, I have been taking ranitidine?
Cause?: I doubt that the allergy to doxycycline can linger on this long and thus your itching must be from something else. In the absence of skin rash, dry skin is the most common cause for itching.

An infection can cause a fever, even when the patient isn't always aware, and the skin flushes, with more fluid evaporating.

Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
