Ciprofloxacin rash

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin rash


Avatar_m_tn The most frequent side effects of ciprofloxacin include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, rash, headache, and restlessness. Hives and anaphylaxis are rarer complications to this.
Avatar_m_tn I had unprotected exposure in Dec 2013, but all tests are negative except bacterial infection on penis. And also I was on antibiotics from last 10 days amoxicillin+Ciprofloxacin from 22_31 March , Just after 2 day of finishing prescription I developed these rashes. Please help me can it be any STD, I just feel very mild burning,irritation only.
Avatar_m_tn Both of these are unusual for me because I've always had brown ones of normal consistency. I also have a skin rash for a few months on my hands (knuckles, joints), which looks like eczema. The skin rash has not been getting worse on its own, but it refuses to clear. I've also had cough for a long time, which is gone now. I had a chest X-ray done and nothing was found. I was on ciprofloxacin for a week for a urinary tract infection when this all started happening.

Avatar_n_tn The saliva glands under my tongue were also sore. A few days into the sore throat I developed a small rash on my right arm on the inside of the elbow. Approximately a dozen small pimples, light pink to red. They didn't itch, but scratching or squeezing caused them to get a dark center. One week later the sore throat is mostly gone and the rash is beginning to fade. I am terrified now, though I did not start that way.
Avatar_n_tn I recently went to the doctor to find out that I had mono and strep throat. The doctor had given me amoxicillin which is the reason I had to change doctors. Not only did the amoxicillin make my throat close up to the point where I could barely breath, I broke out in "the rash from hell" from head to toe. I am currently on steroids and benadryl but both seem to not be doing anything because my rash gets worse every day.
Avatar_m_tn Have you taken a quinolone antibiotic prior to these symptoms such as ciprofloxacin, avolox, levaquin or others. Do you have a whole foods store nearby. Try to eat natural foods free of antibiotics, hormones, msg, etc and see how you feel.
Avatar_m_tn But he also did a prostate check,and ultrasound,and he said my prostate is slightly irritaded but not dua a std bacteria.He gave me Ciprofloxacin for a month,and a half period. The symtoms went away and i was happy and reliefed, But on the last day of my cipro treatment i visited a birthday party and i got pretty drunk The next day some red spots appeard( area approx 7 of them)on my stomach and under my right ripp area . No other symtoms just this red spots.
Avatar_m_tn For about a year I have had a rash that continues to show up on my glans penis. It is a very strange red rash that used to sort of concentrate around the Urethra but now seems to have generalized around the the glans. It used to hardly ever be visable until after sex when a subtle red rash would appear.(a year ago, and sometimes it mostly goes away to this point) Now the red rash is visable all the time and after any friction it is very apparent.
Avatar_n_tn I was prescribed 2 different medications(AMOX/CLAV 875/125),(CIPROFLOXACIN, 500MG), neither have worked. The bump has since grown to the diameter of about a dime, and it pops like a pimple with yellow discharge, occasionally blood.
Avatar_f_tn developed into a rash. Both sides are symmetrical (if I touch my thighs together they line up perfectly), they are now larger than my hand, and they are exactly where my thighs would be rubbing against my bike seat. I was in emergency last week because the swelling got very bad. They put me on an anti-biotic Novo-Lexin. That was 6 days ago and there was no improvement. Instead the swelling and redness got worse.
Avatar_m_tn The sprouts looked a bit like weals but also a bit like nettle-rash in the areas where they are clustered. This sprouts occured just under the ridge seperating the glans from the rest of the penis( they are only on one end of the ridge). I also noticed that the meatus(penis opening) expanded slightly and became darker. Also on the glans there is something that looks like an ulcer but is neither inflamed, just a patchy area of skin.
Avatar_f_tn She doesnt believe it is an STD but more of a staph infection. She put me on two antibiotics (metronidazole and ciprofloxacin). The rash does seem to be getting better (in only two days) but I woke up this morning and it feels irritated again. I was so scared that it might of had something to do with my boyfriend but she said no, not to worry. I am just hoping that is totally goes away SOON!!!
Avatar_n_tn It looks almost like the skin is peeling but it isn't peeling just a lot of little bumps in a circle. I also have a rash (this rash looks different) on each of my butt cheeks in the fold where they meet. It's important to note that i've been excercising more and when I do excercise I just wear boxers so I don't know if lack of support could be an issue. Does this appear to be an STD? Did I have an STD test completed too soon where the test might have missed or not picked up any STDs?
Avatar_n_tn 2) Is there any evidence to suggest that the severity of ARS symptoms may vary during the 3 weeks time of ARS symptoms? (mild sore throat and the red spots/rash in the begining but after ten days spots disapear and sore throat getting chronic) 3) Sore throat in ARS reacts to antibiotics? ( I took ciprofloxacin 250 mg) 4) should I get tested? if yes, when should i get tested? and what tests do you recomend?
Avatar_n_tn Hi, Events such as vaginitis (can lead to vaginal discharge, odor), headache, back ache, lethargy have been observed in less than 1 % of ciprofloxacin patients. (Ref: It is difficult to say if they are due to the underlying disease or due to ciprofloxacin. You should consult your doctor for a complete evaluation and diagnosis.
Avatar_n_tn Hi Welcome to the forum! Yes, ciprofloxacin can cause whole body rash and itching even though it is not a very common side effect. Please inform your doctor immediately regarding this and you should stop the drug immediately. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar_n_tn Hi, How are you? Ciprodex ear drops contain ciprofloxacin and dexamethasone and is indicated for ear infections. Usual side effects include ear discomfort or itching or an unusual taste in the mouth. However, the presence of skin rash, worsening ear pain or discharge and an allergic reaction such as difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives warrants immediate medical attention by a doctor.

Avatar_m_tn Every time I take Cipro or Levaquin I get a very itchy rash about the size of a silver dollar on the back of my left hand. After I stop taking the medecine the rash spot will turn black and will not clear until after about a year. I am a fairly health 74 year old man. By the way I also react to Sulfa drugs but the rash is more generalized and not as bothersome. Is there any significance that with Cipro the rash always appears on the same location?
Avatar_f_tn My first question is will there be any scarring as a result of this rash? My second is how long before I should see the rash start to go away? And my third question is how in the world did I get this bacteria in my body? Thanks.

Avatar_n_tn I went to a doctor and explained this all.... he gave me ciprofloxacin 500 mg 2tablets daily for a week.... even then that did work well... and i feel the burning sensation, so again he gave me doxcyclin 150mg for a week even that did't work...i didn't tested for any STD till now...on jan 6th i got severe pain in my legs and hands this last for 2 weeks.... but there's no fever or rash or swelling in lymph nodes... i am scared of what may be the reason this could be HIV related symptom?
Avatar_f_tn About 3 weeks ago, after having unprotected sex I developed the signs and symptoms of a UTI: increased frequency, increased urge to urinate, slight dysuria, pressure in abdominal area & back pain. I went to my physician & he prescribed ciprofloxacin for the next 5 days. I took the medication & the symptoms disappeared. A few days later, I developed what appeared to be a slight irritation on my genitals; as if when a baby gets a slight diaper rash.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, I recently (2 months ago) had unprotected sex with a female on a one-night-stand, including anal sex. I then had a severe red rash and pain on my penis after about 2 weeks, then I developed a form of seborrehic dermatitis above my eyes and also on my neck. I'm now in pain when urinating and also have an urge to go for as pee every half hour or so, then a burning sensation after I've been to the loo. I have just been prescribed today a course of Ciprofloxacin by my Doc.
Avatar_n_tn The problem is she is also allergic to it (she has horrible back pain and breaks out in a rash), does anyone know anything to help with the allergy or another drug that may have the same result as Cipro? Any help regarding the drug issue or has any words of wisdow about CF please let me know, by the way she is 34 yrs. old.
6259429_tn?1379885975 Hello, I have a rash on the skin between my scrotum and my leg, it is itchy and little patches of skin have turned red but they don't seem to be open wounds, the skin around it looked like it was peeling. i got neo-skin cream, it worked at first and came back again.i have gone for STD and HIV test but all negative. please what can i do?
Avatar_m_tn The doctor said something about it possibly being hpv but I wanted a second opinion. I've been given cream for the rash which seems to be helping and also ciprofloxacin and doxycycline. Since I have started this medication, I have not had any burning of my urethra whatsoever when I go. My perennial area does not hurt nearly as much when I squeeze my PC muscle. I still have the rash/wart and the dryness on my hand.
Avatar_f_tn I'd been on dexamethasone for bronchitis and then I went to hospital and they changed me to prednisone. I was also been on ciprofloxacin and roxithromycin so I'm not 100% sure what caused the rash. On these drugs, my skin was perfectly clear, something that it has never been before. I've always had eczema and those tiny white follicle bumps all over.
