My wife is having skin rashes/irritation since last 2-3 months. She had recently under gone colon cancer surgery. The skin rashes are still continue.

Post-op Rash: Depending if the rash is local to the colon surgery site or more generalized around her body would mean different things. Also radiation and chemotherapies also produce long term rash formations.

I have allergy, probably to Ponstan 500. The skin rash is nearly gone after 5 days, but now I start to have really bad rashes. What should I do?

I have allergy, probably to Ponstan 500. The skin rash is nearly gone after 5 days, but now I start to have really bad rashes. What should I do?

Something else?: If the rash improved without treatment only to return a few days after (your dates were not defined), then the problem may be from something other than the drug implicated. If the rash was treated and returned after the treatment was stopped, then the rash (if due to the drug) may last for 2-3 weeks. ...Read more
