Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am having an allergic reaction (hives) to Fluconazole. What can be done to reverse the side effect of this medication? I already went to the doctor over five times in the last three weeks. This is going on for four weeks. All the doctor does is give me itching medication. I am itching really bad.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It can be a reaction to Fluconazole, but we should rule out other causes as well. As you mentioned that you are not responding to itching medicines like antihistaminics, you need to be started on steroids like Prednisolone. But before starting steroids, I suggest you visit a dermatologist for examination, confirmation of diagnosis and get some blood test done like hemogram including WBC count and ANA (antinuclear antibody) levels, liver function test and renal function tests to rule out infection as steroids may be detrimental. Until then you can have tablet Montair LC (Levocetirizine plus Montelukast combination) one at bedtime, which is a higher antiallergic medicine, and Lactocalamine lotion for topical application. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent. Hope this helps you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
