Hi....Dear user..,
Thanks for choosing HCM..,
FLU....caused by Virus...,
I gone through your history..,
Here according to your complaints....Multiple painful lumps on the back of the neck,
Stiffness of neck, Swollen of ankles,difficult in breathing and wheezing..
more favourable to Overdose of medicines.....i.e Analgesics and Antibiotics...,
These, lowers your immune status and shows this type of... presentation of symptoms..,
For Flu...only Antiviral drugs, Acetaminophen(Tylenol), Ibuprofen, Naproxen can be use...but ..,
over dose of these.,produce drastic results...ok..Unnecessary use of Antiboitics and ..,
analgesics will produce this type of lesions...finally get TOXIC EPIDERMIC NECROLYSIS...,
So exclude overdose of medicines can be judge by only DOCTOR...not your's..ok.
Consult your family doctor and solve it ok..good luck
