I have know the ones that look like erythma multiforme.
I was also taking Acyclovir because the doctors thought I had Shingles, bu we know now that it was Hashi's hives. It hasn't happened again. Sometimes my eyes are dry and my vision is blurry. Talk to your pharmacist. Make sure your prescriptions aren't interacting. I know you are on a budget, but if your pupils don't return to normal, you should see a doctor. Take care...
my lips just became really swollen and I also broke out in hives during this time...now if I put the bells palsy, itchyness of my body, swollen lips, constant redness of my eyes and hives within the past 2yrs would this be a concern of MS??? I heard that the herpes virus is the cause of bells palsy but can herpes cause all of this?? I do get cold sores and I dont have genitals herpes.
Hives is a symptom of shingles
i was diagnosed with sarcoidosis over 20 years ago and a few times in these years i have broken out in very itchy bumps as big as hives but they were not hives. the bumps were very hard were raised about 1/8 to 1/4 of an itch above my skin level. i noticed that i would get a very nervous, energetic feeling before an outbreak. i would feel like i was losing my mind and my reactions to others was very uncharacteristic and nasty. it was very strange.
what side effects are you concerned of? there are no long term side effects to the herpes antivirals. the 3 main side effects are headache, abdominal pain and nausea. The number of ob's you've had is irrelevant as far as the amount of viral shedding that's been going on. you still shed the virus periodically even if you aren't noticing obvious recurrences. could your adjustments have triggered an ob? more likely that you were just "due" for one anyways.
Way before I was diagnosed with Hashimotos, the doctor told me I had Shingles on my scalp. She never took a sample, so I really don't know if I had Shingles. The Acyclovir never worked, and I got this outbreak every month. Many people on this site complain of rashes, hives, Shingles, etc... The dermo gave me Nizoral, and it works great. I don't have the burning, itching rash anymore. I still lose hair in the shower. I do get rashes on other spots of my body.
the ibuprofen helps with the inflammatory response from herpes. take 600mg at a time.
Is it bumpy and splotchy like hives or are the blisters small and clear, itchy until you touch them and then they burn like acid? If the second is the case, have your doctor check them out, you might have herpes simplex. Don't freak out - it isn't an STD. It took awhile for my doctor to identify it. I keep a full bottle of Acyclovir and pop some when the blisters start to appear. Usually within a day or two (if I caught it right away) the blisters go away.
A prior liver biopsy was pain free, I got morphine but broke out in hives. For the 2nd biopsy they gave me fentanyl. 1st dose didn't work so they gave me an another. I started to sweat profusely & was now breathing fast and they stuck the needle in me for the biopsy & I would have flown off the table but I was strapped down. I was covered in bruises from flailing in pain. The doctor said they had to remove pieces of my liver still.
How could I break out with shingles or hives after a course of anti-viral acyclovir??. I see all the doctors this Thursday again and dread being treated like a nut case. My son photographed and took close-up video of the rash/ shingles/hives ? The rash has eased along with the pain but my skin is very painful to touch. I spoke with a PH.
Back on doxycycline for respiratory infection – productive cough. 12/28/07 – Hives as allergic reaction to acyclovir – prednisone 5 days 1/9/07 – lumbar epidural and nerve root block. Please note: - I was absent more often than present at work starting 10/22/07.
I have had a recurrent scalp rash every month and Acyclovir never worked. Now I use a special shampoo and the rash has gone. Now I get a rash on the left side of my waist up to my armpit. I am wondering if I've ever had shingles or maybe just a cause of the thyroid hormones out of wack. I should have my Hashi's results this Monday. Right now, my TSH is a little high, and I have several Hashi symptoms, but that's all we know so far.
said it's not Bartholin's cyst or Herpes and sent me to a gynecologist the same day. The gyno Dr. diagnosed it as Herpes as well and prescribed 1-Gen-Acyclovir 200 mg 5x/day for 5 days and 1-Novo-Cloxin 250 mg 4x/day for 7.5 days. I have finished the Gen-Acyclovir for Herpes Zoster and have finished over half the Novo-Cloxin. The hard, red bumps under my skin are still there. The swelling in the left labia is still incredibly large throughout and painful at times.
rashes, hives, itching feet, hands, and now a pinkish rash on head of penis coming and going. Went to emergency room. given zithromax and rocephin Now that i'm off the bactrim, the burning in the urethra has started again. Went to urologist, thought it might be a male yeast infection. so now on diflucan for 2 days. Felt great after first dose, but that evening became irritated inside and out with pinkish rash look. I'm at a loss.
The initial apparent major outbreak was early last July with my only direct correlation being that I started a new regimen of acyclovir for HSV-2(a few, off and on have showed up on my buttocks for the past 20 years, but asked for it from my gyn when they didn't seem to go away this time),in conjunction with something self-prescribed for my probable fibromyalgia of 800 mg of quaifenesin a day. Afer a week I stopped both as I believed I was getting a skin reaction from the new medication/s.
So - I have not been diagnosed for herpes even 70 % but though I was given acyclovir , just for security. Let's see what the doc says, I will be having the information too "what the hell is going on". By the way, I had also few oral exposures, which might indicate to HSV-1 possibility, so that's always then better than HSV-2. Take care and have strength!
I have been having serious troubles lately. On my hands I have been developing little red hives with a raised white base and a red dot that are very itchy. I scratch them and a red dot appears in the Center, breaks open and bleeds. Another HUGE concern of mine is that I have suddenly undergone a sever sudden hair loss. I have developed a bit of bald spot and hair is coming out in the shower in clumps. And falls out regularly throughout the day.
Finally I have taken a therapeutic dosage of Acyclovir for two weeks to see if that would relieve my symptoms in case I had herpes (genital HSV-1). It has not. I still itch like the dickens down there and have a red, moist rash most days (more often than would be the case with herpes, so they tell me). The itching is constant and the only thing that helps it is Lanacane. I would like to see a dermatologist and get a conclusive diagnosis and treatment regime.
I saw a doctor in Thailand and was prescribed acyclovir (did not help). At around the same time my shingles began to erupt, I had an unprotected insertive vaginal exposure to a female sex worker. I only intended to hang out with her and her friends and grab dinner, unfortunately I had let myself get too inebriated. One thing led to another and I came to my senses shortly after I had penetrated her (roughly a minute, maybe less) and pulled out.
3 pills for 3days, 2 pills for 3days, 1 pill for 3days), and Acyclovir 800mg (1 tab, 5 times per day, for 7 days). I am having a couple of skin reactions above and beyond the shingles "pox." First, I am developing little pin point spots of blood showing up all over my body (not in the Pox areas). They are tiny, pore sized, blood blisters(?) the size of a pin *****. They are smooth, plump, not itchy, bright red when they appear, fading to dark red over days.
He also said that it might be hives on my lips. 1. My question is does herpes cause hives? 2. Also, do hives occur on the upper lip line border? They are red and do not look like any of the pics on net. They do itch before they come and once I itch they become red and by the next day they subside and some ooze some white liquid by some don't. 3. Also is an immunoblot test from labcorp more accurate than Elisa offered by Quest. Please let me know. Thanks!
I usually only have to take 60mg a week and it is cleared up (the hives). I have been to drs about the hives and have gotten no answers. When it comes to hives and hsv...I can say I would much rather take the hsv. The hives are not fun at all and I love like an evolving mutant when they are not treated with steroids. I know that steroids can cause your immune system to be low, so I imagine that is why I had this break out.
I took 2 aleve on thursday morning (had been taking them all week), which had been helping with the pain, but had an allergic reaction (closed throat feeling), along with (what i thought was ) hives. Doc said i had shingles, gave me acyclovir, prednosine, and some vicodin. He told me to follow up this week with my reg doctor. I did that today, and my doc told me prednosine may not be effective, especially if i got a weird, "wired" feeling from it.
Okay, here's my story and a cure for the itching at least! I had a C-Section and had a solid hive from my mid-thigh to my mid-stomach. The hives were due to the betadine (iodine) used to clean the area for my C-Section. I also had a rash on my upper arms and stomach starting about the 8th month of pregnancy. And, about 3 days after birth, I started itching on my legs, arms, stomach, sides, and back that would turn into a rash/hives after I would scratch it.
Six months post I developed a cold sore (CMV pos) and was instructed to take my Nystatin along with Acyclovir, as prescribed, for 2 months until clear. I don't believe the liver surgeons at both UCLA and UCSF med centers would be telling me to keep a bottle handy, refill as necessary, and take as prescribed when directed to if Nystatin was considered harmful to my liver. In Calif, these are the liver experts, period. As far as your mouthwash concoction goes, its strange.
Did some research on skin infections and diseases because these ovular things started appearing all over my face, but then I started thinking about allergens and itching all over the body and that got me thinking of HIVES. Viral infections, such as herpes, can cause viral hives as a reaction to the body's defense mechanism.
9 weeks is conclusive. Its confusing, but acyclovir is an antiviral, and HIV is a retrovirus, so the antivirals have no effect on testing for a retrovirus. Clear as mud, right? A doctor can do a CBC, but I don't really think you need one.
The docs kept telling me Shingles, but after the 10th time, I said ENOUGH! Acyclovir never worked. Turns out to be a typical Hashi rash.
Luckily, I don't have really huge outbreaks or anything. Sometimes after showering I get couple of hives on my legs. I have spots on my legs, belly and breasts. I can see them spreading and I hope they don't spread onto my face. The doctor told me they almost never spread to the face. Is that true? She also told me that, since I was still considered a child when I was 18 (!), it might go away by itself. But to me it seems it is spreading every day, and I doubt it'll ever go away.
