I developed urticaria a few months ago due to a reaction from antibiotic. It was successfully treated with fexofenadine. I no longer suffer with the visible aspect of urticaria but I still get the physical feelings on my skin. I have also developed a persistent dry cough which I have now had for 5 months. Could the cough and urticaria be connected?

Hi,

Both don’t seem to be related directly although both could be allergic in nature.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I got urticaria 7 1/2 weeks into Complera. My doctor told me to stop taking it immediately just 4 days short of my next refill because of concerns this reaction may get worse or affect my XXXXXXX organs (besides skin). Question: Will going off medication for 4 days have any negative impact on my progress towards an undetectable status (virus load, RNA at 1400copies)? What in Complera causes urticaria? My doctor suggested I start new cycle with Stribild. Is Stribild a good choice giving I am treatment naive and medication profile is similar to Complera, relatively.

Hi,

Thanks for writing in.

Complera is emtricitabine / rilpivirine / tenofovir in oral tablet. This is an effective and well tolerated combination for HIV. Rash has been reported in at least 10% of treatment-naive patients treated with emtricitabine and tenofovir.

Getting off the medication for 4...

Pls suggest.

Hello XXXXXXX

It is good that your urticaria is now controlled. Mind you, it is not because of deworming that you are fine now, it is your body which has out grown urticaria. And, this is the normal expected course.
More than 75% of urticaria patients achieve remission (become fine) after 2 years...

my son (3 yrs) is admitted in the hospital suffering from acute urticaria for 2 days . he is suffering pain in his abdomen for last 3days. according to the concerned doctor his blood reports, stool test reports, usg report and xray report is o.k. since this morning reddish spots and rashes come out on his skin and the doctor identified it as acute urticaria. i am an amway distributor and have 100% believe in nutrulite. pls suggest me .

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Nutrilite is a multivitamin supplement and has nothing to do with urticaria.

Although stool reports showed nothing, I suggest to repeat testing. Usually, parasites do not come in the feces. So, I advise to collect three samples of stool (three consecutive days) preserved in formalin (as...

There is a spot which looks like a rash/pimple but it s very round and doesn t continue and connect to others it s on its own and it has a dark red/brown/black spot right in the centre. Some are itchy, but most are not. I had this before and it was all over my back and legs and stomach. But it was one different spots on its own. I know for a fact it isn t the chicken pox because I have had that before, or hives (looks nothing like it). It s not like a regular rash either or pimples at that fact. What is this? What can I do to prevent it from happening again? What may be causing it? Thank you!
