Good afternoon, u003cbru003eu003cbru003eI would like to ask, that at first I had a fever accompanied by chills, headache, and sore throat. Then I was given a prescription by the doctor as follows:
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever, headache, and sore throat can be caused by many factors, but the most common are viral or bacterial infections. This infection can affect the respiratory tract, digestive tract, or other organ systems. If judging from the treatment that the doctor gave, he probably suspected that your complaint was caused by a bacterial infection.
The appearance of itching after taking the drug you are taking could be a sign of an allergic reaction to the drug. This allergy arises due to the body experiencing excessive sensitivity in responding to the entry of substances in the body that are considered dangerous, when in fact they are not. In addition to itching, allergic manifestations can also appear in the form of bumpy skin, reddish rashes, to more severe symptoms, such as vomiting, shortness of breath, palpitations, shock, and so on.
However, you should also know that the itching and white bumps that you are currently experiencing may also arise due to factors other than drug allergies, for example:
Allergies to other substances, such as food, cold, dust mites
Skin infections, eg miliaria (prickly heat), scabies (scabies), tinea pedis and manum (fungus), folliculitis (hair root infection)
Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with an allergen or irritant)
Insect bites, and so on
It's hard to tell the exact origin of your complaint without doing an in-person examination. Therefore, in order to get the best treatment, we recommend that you check with your doctor directly. If it is true that a drug allergy is suspected, the doctor can prescribe some anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as replace the previous treatment with other alternative drugs. However, if the cause is different, then the treatment will be adjusted according to the diagnosis that the doctor has made.
In the meantime, you should not scratch excessively, especially forcibly squeezing or picking at the itchy, bumpy skin. Sprinkle salicylic powder first or apply calamine lotion to temporarily relieve itching. Keep yourself and your environment clean, shower regularly, and then wear clean, soft clothes. Avoid contact with substances that have the potential to cause you allergies or irritation.
Hope it helps ya..
