Why are you taking the tetralysal?

And when did you start to get the hives?

I have been taking Tetralysal for 2weeks. I am 40years old and have had a break out of acne on my face. Last night I noticed it when my arms stung as a washed my face. It runs down both arms from where the little finger is and stops before the elbow. It looks like a burn from a hot pan.

Got it--thanks

Nothing too serious and for now you don't have to stop the medication

I suggest you take either benadryl or Claritin orally and use topical Caladryl lotion for that and it should clear in a couple of days

Please let me know if you need any more information

I take 25mg of phenergan each night to help me sleep given by my physiatrist
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He said it is an antihistamine
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

That's fine and you can just take a bit more of that during the day for a couple of days

Ok, do you think it is an allergic reaction to the Tetralysal.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Most likely yes but as I said nothing too serious

When I had difficulty replying via the site. I live in England and spoke with a gp, she said not to take any more of it and to see her within 24hrs. So a little confused.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Well I agree with her that the best thing to do is not to take any more for now but this isn't an urgent situation

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.
