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?

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?

Have you tried applying a moisturizer on your body 2x daily with one <3 mins after bathing? ...Read more

Dehydration: Dehydration can occur easily when a patient has an infection. An infection can cause a fever, even when the patient isn't always aware, and the skin flushes, with more fluid evaporating. In addition, if a patient isn't feeling well, they often don't drink or eat as much as they typically do. Patient's who are on other medications, including cardiovascular medications, can be more sensitive to the effects of dehydration. Signs of allergic reaction to a medication usually includes rash that is usually hives, swelling, itching, or shortness of breath. ...Read more
