Chantix and skin rash

Common Questions and Answers about Chantix and skin rash


Avatar f tn Rash; I'll show you rash! Just joking. I'm 7 months in and now it's doing the arms and legs chicken pox thing you're describing. It's usually caused by the riba; it's most famous side effect after lowering hgb. In the dry winter months, I found running a humidifier very helpful. It and lotions are less effective now that humidity is going up outside. I did recently start with 1% hydrocortisone gel and it has been terrifically effective.

I have not taken any Chantix in four days now and my condition seems to be getting worse. The itching is still just as bad but now if i itch my skin raises up where i have done so and even in some areas creates what looks to be hives where I itch.
Avatar f tn Tea Tree oil has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. I had a rash on my neck once and after applying the Tea Tree oil at night, I noticed the swelling went down the next morning. I then applied it every morning and night. It eventually went away and stopped itching. Might be worth a try. Hope this works for you!
Avatar n tn The penis was very itchy and the skin feels very dry. The raw parts were red and like open cuts but never scabbed- dry skin was hanging off all over the place. Some clear liquid came out of cuts, I think. Whole area just looked like a mass of dried up rugburned skin. Cut areas were almost like a ring around penis. Since then things haven't been the same. Very itchy and at times penis swells almost to a comical level. Penis skin in general just feels different.
Avatar m tn I guess I need feedback... Also. my partner and I started chantix, and shes also taking amoxicillin for tonsillitis. And shes thinking she has a yeast infection due to vaginal discharge...
Avatar n tn While infrequent, hives (urticaria) has been reported as an adverse side effect of Chantix, and that is a likely cause. Allergic skin rashes other than hives have also been reported with Chantix. Pityriasis can be dreadful. Glad to hear it is resolving. I suspect the new lesion is unrelated to the Pityriasis. Good luck with your attempt to stop smoking. As the American Lung Association likes to say: " It is a death-defying act.

Avatar n tn 5 years) and tapered-off the use of the gum (for one month) until I stopped entirely three days ago. I was getting a skin rash and experiencing shortness of breath recently which I attributed to the gum. The shortness of breath was really troubling. My doctor gave me lots-O-tests and couldn't find a medical reason. Since stopping, those symptoms seem to have disappeared. Time will tell if the skin rash and shortness of breath are gone for good. I don't think I could have quit without the gum.

What is it that sets a person off to a point that they can't see these beautiful things in life? What is it that makes them care only about their pain and about nothing and nobody else?
