Thanks for the query.
Since your father has developed urticaria
, it suggests allergic reaction
to one or more of the medication. This is why anti-histamnes were started to reduce the allergic reaction. Since it still did not show relief, the steroids
were started. Steroids are stronger medicine to reduce allergic urticaria. He may have been allergic to Phenytoin
which is why The Doctor has changed to Levitiracetam by tapering Phenytoin. Nothing to worry. He should be having less or no more urticaria from now on.
Kindly follow the Doctor's advise. Give proper care to your father. Make sure he gets balanced diet, plenty of water everyday and proper exercise.
Wishing speedy recovery.
