I take ibuprofen, tylenol and aleeve. I had a rash yesterday and today from my neck to my toes. I looked like I had a really bad sunburn. My hands were the most itchy and then my neck. How do you know what you are allergic to?
Anyone have a reaction with a full body rash from medication such as tylenol, ibuprofen or naproxen sodium? How soon after taking it do you get itchy?
Today I noticed that I got itchy after drinking decaf coffee and whipped cream, but I took it with ibuprofen and tylenol.
I know that you should not take Aleve if you are allergic to Naproxen or Aspirin. You can also try to stop one medication for a week and see what happens. Sometimes when I have a rash on my foot /not big/ I take more probiotics and it stops immediately.
Thank you Jan, Linda and Phil.
Phil, yes the ibuprofen has a dye. I tried not to take as much as I usually do, but I still have pain so is hard to stop taking it. I broke out three times from head to toe. I was scared. I did go to an allergist and he said it sounded like a medicine rash. well, it did not happen again and I stopped some of the nsaids and took salsalate instead for pain, but it made my stomach hurt.
They gave me 20mg prednisone at the ER , benadryl and pepsid, it took away the rash after an hour or so.They wanted to give me 60mgs f prednisone, I would of ended up in a mental ward, that stuff makes me feel so uneasy.
