No itching, no rashes yet

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Your girlfriend may have allergy from Ibuprofen. This allergy from ibuprofen is fairly common.

Following is recommended for her now:

-Take tablet benadryl once a day. It is anti allergic medication.

-If any rashes appear- then apply cream containing 1 % hydrocortisone.

This will treat her allergy symptoms. It is available at pharmacy as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help her greatly.

Thank you

Please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today ,we only get after positive feedback.

Bonus is highly appreciated.

We are here to help you until you satisfy.

Kind Regards

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
