Hi welcome to healthcareMagic Forum

these symptoms are not due to hernia...
the above symptoms suggestive of Allergic Drug reactions of Monocef,.. But monocef belongs to cephalosporin group which is rarely allergic.. since monocef is allergic you must be alert that drug must not be given for him at any time in life...

I have had a severe bout of itching, hives, bruising that started about three days after my last dose of Nitrofurantoin on a ten day regimen, taking it every 12 hours during those ten days. I saw my doctor a couple of days after the reaction started and received a cortisone injection as well as a prescription for prednisone. I am now on my second round of 3-day prednisone medicine, and still having some intense itching, but it is better overall. My question is how long does this type of reaction typically last? I have a lot of bruising where I have scratched repeatedly, but I also have smoldering multiple myeloma, and the bruising could be due to that. Thank you.
