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).

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...
