About 4 months ago i was given morphine before they put my shoulder back in and i developed a raised itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> where they had injected it on my arm. The next time i had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> was about a month later (shoulder again) and i got a rash all over my body so they gave me an shot of antihistamine (poor spelling) and the rash went down.
Can anyone tell me what causes the 'itches' and what is the best effect to counteract this? My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> is only 15mg and I try t take it every 12 hours but when the "itches" kick in, (usually about 8 hours later), I take another and it seems to stop. I don't want to take the morphine but right now it is the only thing that helps the pain.
1. An adverse effect/Allergy to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> or 2. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> should have NOT been used for the particular pain you were having when you presented to the ER. morphine is NOT the best choice for all pain. Oh yes, the CT contrast, yuk!! Yes, had to drink this myself and have given it to numerous patients; it is awful. Unfortunately, it is needed for better views of the abdomen. How are you feeling now?
As I have had this since I was 20, there has not been a whole lot I hadn't tried, tho for the last decade I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> except for about a year so there may be some new medicines I have not tried yet. I was actually reluctant to go on morphine at first, and was only prescribed it because it was cheap as I was going to the V.A.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! A localized rash is unlikely to be due to any drug. Itchy localized rash can be due to allergic dermatitis, eczema, contact dermatitis, shingles, psoriasis, fungal infection like or Tinea corporis. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without examining the rash. Please consult a skin specialist. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
When I'm dropping in dose or under stress (same difference) I get a butterfly like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> on my face (not really forehead, across nose/cheeks and lower half of face). No, I don't believe it's lupus, by the way!
I have posted new pictures of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> this week - at least, have posted the pictures that were modest in their presentation. They are on my photo page here - http://www.medhelp.org/user_photos/list/1995824 . I am in constant agony when I am awake. Nothing has helped. Not the clobetosol, not the Atarax, OTC meds... nothing. My entire body is burning and itching. The only place the rash has not traveled to at this poing is my face and my feet.
After I get home, once the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> wore off, I was again in pain, with chills, dizziness, and nausea, but still no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. Finally lastnight I couldnt take the pain anymore and went to the hospital. The doc took blood in order to check for lung blood clots , etc....all lab tests came back normal. But....when he touched my skin it just burned and hurt so bad. He said i had " shingles" without a rash. He sent me home with valtrex, and vicodin for pain.
Today, I noticed itching where the bruise had been, and I now have small raised itchy bumps exactly where the bruise was. I put cortisone cream on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>; however, it burned quite a bit, and the itching is pretty intense. What would cause a bruise to turn into a rash when it heals?
The quacky doctor said I was ok, and gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span>, sent me home, No I.V. Liquids were given, Just Pain medicine? I thought that when you have a heat exhaustion or stroke from heat that you are dehydrated, Pain Meds? I really have not felt right since, but this other stuff started a few weeks ago. Let me know what you think, maybe I will find some direction from that. I have been having suicidal thoughts since this started. And yes I do have an appointment with a shrink on Monday, for that.
my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
IVP dye (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>), Codiene (Itch), Imatrex (problem breathing), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> sulfate (itching) Methadone (Severe itching), & Hydromorphone (problem breathing).
I have allergies to codiene, codone and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span>. Is there any pain medication available that I could take. My symptoms are rash, hyperactivity and I feel like my skin is crawling.
Hey all, I have a problem. A new one that is. My dr. Started me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> and Fentanyl patches. But now all of a sudden the last 2 days I have gotten extreme muscle spasms especially in my neck and shoulders to the point where I cant look up or turn my head I can only look down and I have tension in my legs where they feel stiff when walking. does anyone get that? I also get the spasms in my legs but not so much as in my shoulders and neck. this is getting out of hand.
He puts hydrocortisone on his skin, but i am thinking tht possibly there is another type of cream to use on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. Anyone hve any ideas?
was ok with you alternating the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> and the Butrans patch? It seems like if you had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> and tried it a few times and specifically asked to be put on something else (the morphine) then they expect you to not use the Butrans patch again...So walking in with it on or you being tested negative for it those other times...I could see why they are upset... I'm not sure why you titled this the way you did asking if you are an addict?
The only things I'm allergic to are cat dander, dust, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span>, there are no cat's at my house, there's dust but I don't think that can do this to my arm, and I haven't taken any morphine. I would just like to know, what it is, if theres a cure, can it spread to my son or my husband, and what causes it. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank You.

the dermatolgogist tells me oh the shingles are getting better, the burning is probably from the Lidoderm pain patches I was putting on it, I explained that was the only relief, Pain management put me on fentanyl, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> suppositiores and the burning is still so severe . It feels like 110 degrees in the left side of my butt and so painful. I get some relief if I lie on ice. Is this the way shingles reacts.
The first issue is whether you are intolerant-- such as having nausea, headaches, or feeling other strange symptoms... or allergic, such as getting a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> after a day or two? (some medications like morphine will cause nonspecific histamine release and cause a sudden 'blotchy' rash that might itch-- this is not a true allergy either). 'Intolerances' can often be dealt with, but allergies generally only get worse...
So to make a long story short I am itching like a mother and havent taken one today and I am not planning on taking them anymore I want to throw them away. do you think the itching is from the done/roxi combo? I have no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> so I am stumped.

Not really a pimple not really a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> either. My neck looks like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>, heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. I also swell. my upper body. My face and neck. You can really tell. I never have had this before. All these years and now when I'm ready to quit, I'm falling apart..good incentive. You're not alone...
How long can I take it without having the withdrawal symptons? ALso has anyone experienced any kind of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> while taking it? I dont know if this is coincidental or not but after 4 days of taking it I got a red rash like that is red and then scabs over when I scratch it. Looks like flea bits and I do have an inside dog, but not sure if that is a rash from the Tramadol.
hi all i had a bike crash (skidded on diesil spill) dident find owner of it, so i dont have a claim i had spiral fractures of r/tiba and femure dislocated r/shoulder and gravel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>. spent 3 weeks in hospital, got let out on diclofenic, morphine,sevrodol,this was 4.
do you have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> as well? Even though you have taken it before, I wouldn't take it again without calling the doc and s/he might want to see you b4 you take off boating, etc. Something could happen while you are gone...I wouldn't chance it. Just my opinion. Let us know tho.
In the past few years, I have begun having a histamine reaction to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> and dilaudid, which knocks out demerol by association. When I received it by IV in the hospital, I broke out in a rash on my chest, felt like I couldn't breathe - like a weight was on my chest (even though my pulse ox was 100%), couldn't entirely move my arms and legs, and couldn't talk. So, there go the narcotics. Ummm, in two days they are gonna cut my head open, HELP?!
at noon and 900 mg qhs. I'm allergic to Lyrcia (severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span> with lesions). I tried Oxycontin, hydrocodone, and demerol with no relief. I am now on MS Contin 15 mg q am 30 mg q hs, as well as morphine sulfate 30mg 1/2 prn (usually tid) for break-through pain. Additional meds include dilantin 200 mg bid, Zofran 4mg q 4 hr prn. My question is... am I on to much morphine? This is the only medication that allows me to get out of bed.
In a recent allergy testing, I tested positive for 74 out of 77 allergens. I react negatively to many drugs, such as PNC, Codeine, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span>, Sulfa drugs, etc. I just had a recent bout with a cold that left me with a cough for 2.5 months, after three rounds of antibiotics, and other numerous medicines. It was determined that the cold set me up for my allergies to kick in, then the extreme coughing caused acid reflux, therefore more coughing.
They asked if I was allergic to iodine, my answer was no. Obviously the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>morphine</span> they gave me for the pain - or just my own stupidity, affected my thinking because I didn't think about mentioning my thyroid issues until I was in the machine and it was too late. I do have several cystic nodules on my thyroid that are slowly growing, thyroid is about twice normal size. (Endo. now treating me with synthroid, even though my TSH levels are normal, to see if it shrinks the nodules).
