Customer Question
I woke up yesterday...

I woke up yesterday with an itchy rash all over my body. its still here over 24 hours later. I'm perplexed?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

First time ever. its just constantly itchy starting yesterday morning. could it be a side effect of oxy? I took a couple 20's Sat night.

Well it could be. Should improve with benadryl if its allergic, you can try that. A photo of the rash might help us more

Does it look like hives or bed bug bites??

In any case you will need to take benadryl or cetirizine, it shoukd improve. If it doesnt then you will need to visit ER for steroid shot like hydrocortisone.

You need to spot the allergen which could be the drug you took or anything else that you consumed in food or were exposed to.

Hope it helped.

Let me know if you have any further queries

I just took some benadryl. I didnt eat hardly anything yesterday. I dont know what beg bug bites look like but im sure thats not it.
My whole body except for my head. weird!
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Yes it seems to be a generalized allergic reaction to something you took. Wait for benadryl to work ,if it doesnt then i recommend a visit to ER for getting it examined and a possible steroid shot.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
