Welcome to icliniq.com.

With the details you have provided I understand that you are suffering from rashes over the body and hands. Also that you are taking the following medicines:

1. Ozith = Azithromycin (antibacterial).

2. Montex = Montelukast (anti-leukotriene).

3. Axytop soap = Ketoconazole (anti-fungal).

4. Nocalamine lotion.

It seems that you are using multiple drugs without a clear basis unless some doctor has examined you and prescribed the same. Please follow these suggestions (advice).

1. If you have taken Ozith for three days, it is enough. Unless the doctor who prescribed it had asked you to take for longer.

2. Stop using Axytop soap unless you have some fungal infection over the body.

With regards to the above two points, I wish to know whether the soap and tablet were prescribed by some doctor and if so for what complaints? This will help me assess your condition and arrive at a more decisive diagnosis regarding what has caused the rashes.

3. Continue Montex tablet. It should be Montelukast 10 mg. If it is 5 mg, take a 10 mg tablet. Take Montex once daily preferably in the morning.

4. Continue to apply Calamine lotion. It is soothing and reduces itching also.

5. Take Levocetirizine 5 mg once in the morning and once in evening for two days and thereafter once a day for next two days. This is an anti-histaminic which reduces histamine release and function and help reduce allergy.

Alarming signs: Please rush to the doctor or a hospital if you find any of the following problems.

1. Difficulty in breathing or swallowing: it can be because of angioedema, one of the manifestations of allergy.

2. Worsening of rashes and intense itching and redness.

3. Giddiness or weakness to the point that you are not able to do routine activities.

In the above cases, it signifies that the condition cannot be treated at home, you may require some steroid injections to help reduce the inflammation that is threatening your life.

Kindly provide me with the details I have asked for a more decisive diagnosis and specific advice. Till then I have suggested certain points to you. Hope you get relieved soon.
