I've been taking fexofenadine for one week and I have come out with a rash all over my neck and my wrist and is now starting to spread to both hands.
Unlikely: Fexofenadine is an antihistamine and mast cell stabilizer which can help reduce an allergic reaction. Usually drug rashes appear to come from beneath the skin and all over the body rather than localized to a few areas. Discontinue the fexofenadine for now and try diphenhydramine. Also look for other sources for the rash. A new piece of jewelry perhaps! ...Read more

See a DR: Itching without visible skin changes is extremely difficult. There are hundreds of possible causes, some of them very serious. On any meds? Vitamins or supplements? Illness or any other symptoms? Ever before? You need exam, blood tests, xrays, maybe biopsies. No antihistamine helps this. Brand of laundry detergent is not of interest. It is not diet and probably not allergy. ...Read more

1 of the side effect: -s. Not the best Rx for gout. I start with a uric acid, if high use colchicine to absorb crystals, then probenecid which allows urinary excretion of uric acid and also allopurinol which interferes with the production of uric acid. Then after things clear up, just continue on allopurinol, 200 mg/day. That’s how I treated myself & never had a second attack in30 years, nor have my patients. ...Read more
