I'm 65 yrs old non smoker I have itchy skin, My doctor said stop taking my bl pills for two weeks and then come in to see him. Now I have foamy non bloody urine? maybe it's my body flushing out the bp pills in my body that may have caused the alergery reaction? I have been usinghydocortisone 1% cream on some of the rashes. I also have been taking otc benedryl diphenhydramine hci 25mg 4 times a day for the itching. I also have either a very bad cold or allergy sinus problem. fever with night sweats take aleve for fever, ear aches head aches temperature 100 degree's
