Why do i have a rash all over my body and I swell up when I take my highblood pressure medicine? And what can I do about it?

Why do i have a rash all over my body and I swell up when I take my highblood pressure medicine? And what can I do about it?

It sounds like a: Medication allergy or intolerance to me! First, stop your blood pressure medicine and then IMMEDIATELY call your doctor or go in to the office. She/he needs to see you and evaluate to decide which alternative blood pressure medicine (there are many!) you might try. It is not safe for you to delay as you will need another medication immediately to prevent your blood pressure from rising. ...Read more

I've been taking 2 amoxicillin pills every day for 5 days and had an allergic reaction. I have a rash all over my body, how long will this last?

Days: Typically, drug allergic skin reactions such as hives or pinpoint rashes will begin to improve within 2 days of stopping the drug. The rash will then gradually improve over the next several days. With treatment, the course may be shortened and symptoms milder. Be sure to let your doctor know what is happening! ...Read more

I have a rash all over my body from an allergic reaction to an antibiotic I was taking, can I still lay in a tanning bed?

I have a rash all over my body from an allergic reaction to an antibiotic I was taking, can I still lay in a tanning bed?

Take a break!: I would not advise it at this time as your body is in the midst of a battle against the antibiotic. Your immune system is on high alert and the UV lights may cause the rash to increase. Secondly, much as our culture loves tan skin as a sign of good health it's an incredible health hazard — leads to premature skin aging, wrinkles and sometimes cancer. http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/skin/basic_info/indoor_tanning.htm ...Read more

I have a rash all over my body apart from my face and stomach but it doesn't itchy it's just very red?

I have a rash all over my body apart from my face and stomach but it doesn't itchy it's just very red?

Probably viral rash: Rashes caused by allergies itch — so this one is not an allergy. Press on a spot for a second. The rash should fade away momentarily & then reappear. If it doesn't you have bruising in the skin — petechiae (see photo) — promptly see a doctor for that. If it does fade & you otherwise feel well give the rash a week or two. If it still doesn't fade away see your doctor then. ...Read more
