Thanks for your question .
I would be pleased to answer your question .
You will need to take a short course of Corticosteroid as a prescription from your physician . It is an allergic systemic dermatitis .Please look out for any lip swelling , sore throat or difficulty breathing and visit the ER immediately on onset of these signs.
Do continue with the Avil 25 mg every 4 hourly .

Thanks and take care
