Avatar f tn i kept him home from school (he will be 4 in december) and on Tuesday i noticed 3 Hives on his face. He is allergic to penicillin but none was given. I brought him o the dr and she said it could be from the virus. He went to school that day for the 2.5 hrs hes in prek. Wednesday he woke up coughing like crazy. Again i brought him and she said it was the start of CROUP. His lungs were clear and she said to give him 15mg of Prednosolone 2 tiems a day. seems to get the coughing to ease up.
Avatar m tn My six year old daughter has had a rash since september, two weeks after I noticed it, she had a sore throat and was diagnosed and treated for strep. The Dr. said when the rash was still there weeks later that it could be strep related and it would run its course and to keep him posted. Now wants to refer to dermatologist for possible allergies. I am wondering if my instincts are right and that it is not allergies but caused by strep virus.
Avatar f tn Hello, For a couple years now I have noticed a trend with my colds and/flus. It all began when I developed strep throat for the first time. Immediately after the worst of the strep throat was treated with antibiotics, my hands and the bottom of my feet "broke out". They became red, hot, extremely itchy. Eventually they died out and peeled in long strips. My hands and feet always do this now after every cold/flu.
Avatar n tn I had a root canal done on Tues. and got terrible diarrhea and vomiting Wed. afternoon followed by a bright pink rash from my neck down my torso. Are any of these related or from either the local anesthesia or the Advil? I took 2 Advil at 8:30am and 3 at 3:30pm and never had a bad reaction in the past. There is a stomach virus going around, could it be that? Could I have hives as an allergic reaction to the novocaine?
Avatar f tn Me and my son(7) went to the Dr. about 3 weeks ago with a bad sore throat, red rash, nasal problems. They did a strep test on us and it came out negative. We were told we just had some virus and would have to wait it out. Fine, 3 weeks later, we both have extremely dry, itchy skin and our palms and soles of our feet are bubbly and peely. Does anyone know, is this just part of the virus or do we have a skin ifection or something?
Avatar m tn i started taking amoxicillin thinking that i had strep throat. as of yesterday my throat hurts less and even today it doesnt hardly hurt at all but i have this rash that developed worse on my hands and feet. i thought i may have been allergic to the amoxicillin so i stopped taking that yesterday. the rash is still getting worse. its all over my hands on the top and on the palms. it itches very much. its also on my feet on the soles a little bit and on my ankles.
648155 tn?1238197357 I have Chronic Urticaria (hives) and also vitiligo sometimes follows in areas that are attacked by hives for a long time. Perhaps from the trauma to the skin. Anyway, I have noticed an increase in the intensity of my urticaria in the past few weeks in general. I have been doping myself with benadryl to get by. Two days ago I was prescribed high dose amoxicillan to treat an ear infection and strep throat. It seems my urticaria has kicked into high gear.
Avatar f tn So I had a sore throat achy chills etc.. and went to the dr. They didnt do a strep test but diagnosed me with strep and gave me amoxicillin. The next day I started breaking out in hives called the dr. and they said it sounds like i was alergic and to stop taking it.they sent domething else over and they continued getting worse. I went back to the dr and the did a blood test and it came back positive for mono....
Avatar f tn 5days after the rash stared and could not be contained I saw my doctor and tested positive for strep with a rapid strep test. I was given erythromyicin which reacted badly with my body and the next day was given clyndimyicin which I finished the course with no side effects other than light diarrhea. After finishing that course and having the rash clam down dramatically after starting the antibiotics. I have been waking up with haves on my legs and torso in the a.m.??
Avatar n tn Last year I got hives towards the end of a strep infection. This year again I was sick and now i am feeling better but getting hives again. The strep test from the doc was negative. I am wondering, does this happen to anyone else? I am pretty sure it is not related to food or medicine. It seems to happen as my body is fighting the virus. An allergic reaction to...the virus? If so, why towards the end?
Avatar m tn 4 days ago I developed a patch of tiny red bumps on my left arm that was very itchy and the next day I also noticed a couple dots near my right elbow. With each passing day it seems like there are new spots and now my right arm has tiny light red raised bumps all along the underside of my forearm. More details: it goes in "spurts" of being itchy. I have ONE dot on my ankle area and a couple on my abdomen that are itchy sometimes. I am not on any medication.
Avatar m tn Besides that I have no other symptoms. About a week ago, I had a bad sore throat with swollen lymph nodes but tested negative for strep throat. I am not sexually active at all. Any idea of what it could be?
Avatar f tn We got medicine for his strep and then just gave him oatmeal baths and used non scented lotion. It got really bad and the entire top layer of his skin ended up peeling off. It was not fun. Just a suggestion, hope I could help.
Avatar n tn I was taking a course of Amoxicillin for strep throat and on my second last day of treatment I start to get hives. They started around my upper thigh, arm pit and under my breast on a Saturday. By Sunday they were much worse and I went to the emergency room. The doctor felt it was a food allergy, although I hadn't eaten anything new or unusual to me. The following day I developed hives on the soles of my feet, palms and around my mouth and eyes.
Avatar n tn This could indeed be due to the viral infection he has or even a strep throat he had previously. it is usually self-limiting after a few days. Moisturizing the affected area may also help. With regards to his diarrhea, have him drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. The itching may be relieved with cold packs or over-the-counter anti-histamine medications. If the symptoms persist, have him evaluated by his pediatrician for proper diagnosis and management.
Avatar n tn The last two times that I gave him oral sex I broke out in the most painful blisters on my tonsils. I went to the Dr. because I thought that I had strep throat and the test came back as just a virus, however, I don't know what virus.
Avatar f tn The symptoms described could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain. For the cough (dry) antitussives with Dextromethorphan based syrups like Triaminic may help.
Avatar f tn The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
Avatar n tn It is now Saturday, my daughter was diagnosed with strep throat Wednesday night and started amoxicillin in the urgent care, Friday afternoon she broke out in a itchy rash...mostly on her torso but some on her legs, neck, and arms. She has been on amoxicillin several times before from ear infections when she was little. The only difference with that is it is no longer pink (the amoxicillin).
Avatar n tn May 12th I noticed white clumping around my tonsils, which I figured to be strep throat. I called my gynecologist and she prescribed me something called the Z pack. I started taking it that day. May 14th all of the cultures and blood that the hospital and my gynecologist took came back negative for any STDs or HSV1 or HSV 2. May 15th I saw my dermatologist who guessed that it might be Behcet's. She prescribed me prednisone and a topical cream for the ulcers.
Avatar n tn Before this I was healthy getting sick only 1 time per year and almost always that would be strep throat but since the hives have come and gone Im sick all the time! 6 months after the hives were gone my gallbladder became inflammed and I was very sick all the time with that for 2 years until had it removed (had 2 wait 2 yrs as Ive always been anemic and the surgeon wouldnt do it until that was better plus was pregnant and had a baby when the gall began).
Avatar m tn She told me to take benadryl and drink water and it would go away. A week laterr i got a terrible sore throat and lost my voice. The doctor called and I had a level one reaction to shell fish. We wnet to another doctor and got a strep test. It came back negitive. So I took advil and went back to school. A week later I woke up with pink eye. I was perscribed the perscription for that and was also perscribed azrithromicin for a baterial infection. After i took those meds I felt so much better.
Avatar f tn I know strep throat is going around have u been sick I had a sore throat and a rash and found out I had scarlet fever which u need antibiotics to get rid of
Avatar m tn So in the past week and a half I began to get what looked like strep in the back of my throat. Swollen tonsils and little white dots accompanied by of course a sore throat. Usually when this occurs it comes with a fever this time it didn't. I then started to notice bumps on the back of my tongue followed by about 2 days of my tongue slightly swelling. I found that abnormal for having strep throat but figured it might be just a different strain.
Avatar m tn In September, it was also accompanied by a slightly raised, bumpy abdominal rash (doctor presumed I might have strep throat due to the combination of stomach rash and neck blotches, but the labratory test was negative).
