Itchy swollen skin after eating mushrooms. Taking Romilast tablet for allergy. Is it an effective medication?
Hello Doctor, Good evening (or Probably good morning) I had mushroom 4 days back. Then I started developing sort of allergy . Itching, and those parts which I scratch are becoming red and little bit swelling , becoming hot... I consulted doctor. He gave me Romilast tablet. I just want to know how it really works. Could you please help me?
You seem to be having allergy to mushrooms. Continue taking romilast as it is an anti allergic drug. Add a tablet of cetrzine or allegra also. If it still remains troublesome, a short course of steroids for 5 to 7 days will help.
