Skin burning from head to toe, under the fingers, taking celebrex. Side effect?

Hello: my Mom has been suffering with burning under the skin from head to toe and under her fingers. She said it feels like the burning when cleaning hot pepper without rubber gloves on. She will be 90 this year and thought it might be a side affect from celebrex and has quit taking it. She has been on celebrex for a few years now.

Hey there j2..please get your mom's physician to do some basic blood tests to evaluate the liver & renal function to start with if not done so already. Celebrex may be a 'touch strong' on my mother's 'insides' at her age & you may wish to take the opinion of her treating GP. If due to celebrex, it will settle in a week or two with some symptomatic non-sedative antihistamine on the side to aid recovery together with moisturizing. But at 90, best to show a dermatologist nearby. cheers & wish your mom a long happy fruitful life from mois..Dr Praveen Rodrigues MD Dermatologist, Bangalore, India
