Had 3 doses of Hepatis B vaccines. Do I need more? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
My question was that if I remeber correctly I had 3 doses of Hepatis B vacines
8 years ago
Then do I need to take this agan
or its lifelong
so what do you reccomend in my case?
If an individual belongs to high risk category (such as a professional doctor/surgeon) we suggest to vaccinate again to boost the immunity.
In your case, you may get the antibody titre done after 2 years (considering the vaccination was 8 years ago)
if the titre is below the recommended levels, you can get a booster shot of this vaccine.
Till then the 3 doses is sufficient.
ok so I should not worry for 2 years
You are protected for atleast 10 years after 3 shots.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query/
yes i have.
one more question please
when back in blr I went to st XXXXXXX
and the doc said that i have sever inflamation of throat
but the WBS count was high out of the range on higher side
and in subsequent days though i recovered...
i have my skin peeling off from my palms first
and then soles and top of my feet
question is ... is ther any point to worry
was that due to the medication?
May I know what medicine were / are you on?
sadly i dont have the precription now...
but in coorg the doc precribed me some Monk 350 mg
Some medicines can cause side effects like the ones you have.
which the doc at st XXXXXXX said it was too mild
and she precribed me something stronger (?)
thanks thats all
You need to review the medicine list with your doctor if they are causing the current problems.
If they are and if the symptoms are worsening you need to be treated for that.
ok you mean I should see the doc again
I would be pleased if all your previous medications are reviewed for side effects.
Skin peeling with severe itching in association with medicines is a bit worrying.
I would like to be confirmed that this is not very severe, so do visit a dermatologist at the earliest.
so can get the precription and chat with you tomorrow
I will be available to review the medication, but like I said, it would be better if a dermatologist
can you suggest me about dermatologist
examines the peeling lesions and confirms if this was not part of the drug reaction.
I stay near silk board
Yes, consulting a dermatologist nearby would be better.
This link might be useful in finding a good dermatologist near your locality.
I am not sure if there is one at silk board, but you would definitely have one close to your place.
The user written reviews can guide you better.
Do you have any other query?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
