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...

Hi, my OB?GYN prescribed Medroxypr AC 10 mg, to me a month ago, the uterus lining is to thick , I had heavy bleeding for 4 mo. straight , he did a Dand C first, then started me on this , after I had the surgery I started with staph on my foot, then I had to start the progesterones on the 24th for 10 days, after the 2nd day I developed a itchy red rash very severe under my breasts, and hives on my face and chest,. We my family Dr. assumed it was a reaction from the sulfa I was taking for the staph. I had finally cleared up the breast rash, and yesterday started back on the pregesterone for another 10 days. This morning I awoke with the same severe rash in the same spot and my tongue and throat feel tingly and hoarse. I am thinking now this is a reaction from the Medroxypr. Could I be right and should I stop taking it. My DR. is on vacation

My 3-year-old son has been waking up with hives occasionally for over 5 months now. We ve taken him to an allergist as well as regular visits to his pediatrician. No cause has been determined, but in doing his blood work, his AST liver enzyme continues to come back as slightly elevated. It has been at 73, 62 and lastly 63. The pediatrician has advised us to wait 6 to 9 months to repeat the test and see if the AST enzyme is back in range. Waiting that long makes me nervous and I m looking for some reassurance that this is not reasons to persue the situation immediately. Also, is more likely that the hives are a cause or reaction to what is contributing to the elevated liver enzyme? Thank you for your time.

3 weeks after using Efudex cream on my nose, I started getting hives, no where in particular on the bottom side of my forearms, on the top of my feet to the extent that I wanted to scratch my skin off, lumps & bumps would appear. The area would welt up and inflame in no particular place. If I stood all day my quads would inflame welts or lumps would appear, my knees would ache so bad I couldn t stand. If I rested my arms on chair rests for any extended period of time the pressure points would welt up. The same would happen to my feet if I rested them on chair runners. If I bump myself or even get a sore throat it hurts way more (heaps) more then it did before. Pressure points are the worst. Seems I cant lean on anything for to long and it starts to ache. One particular time I swelled ached and itched that bad a doctor injected pethidine in my leg. The injection hurt so much and around the needle hole swelled up about 10- 12cm and raised up 3mm and was hot. Today 6 years later I still get mild reactions, aches, no welts but little red spots about 4mm in diameter might appear for no particular reason, say if some sparks from a grinder hit my under arm it will get itchy and hive up a little. My legs get restless at night from standing a lot. Even typing this my fore arm muscles are aching. I m not saying it is efudex but I had lots of test and its like they gave up and put it down to efudex. I don t wish to put up with this, so any advise would be great. Thanking you heaps Mark
