Overcoming Itching And Bleeding After Taking Antiplatelet Drugs?
What additional drugs to treat itching and bleeding due to antiplatelet drugs?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are complaints of itching and bleeding after taking antiplatelet drugs, this is likely related to the side effects of platelet drugs and the possibility of an allergy to the antiplatelet drug you are taking. If side effects and possible allergies to this drug occur, then you should be able to stop this treatment and consult your doctor immediately.
Antiplatelet drugs are drugs to prevent blood clots or for blood thinners. This drug is indicated for patients with blockage strokes or in patients with coronary heart disease, where both conditions occur due to blockage of blood vessels in the brain or in the heart. With this drug, blood flow is expected to return smoothly and prevent damage to the nervous system in the brain and heart in each medical condition. Side effects that you can encounter after taking this medicine, are:
1. stomach upset
4. skin rashes
6. bleeding, such as nosebleeds, bleeding gums, gastrointestinal bleeding
Therefore, if the side effects of these drugs arise and bother you, for the initial steps of handling at home, some efforts you can do, such as:
1. Stop the antiplatelet drug
2. Press bleeding with sterile gauze
3. give a compress with ice or cold water
4. keep calm
5. At the same time, if the small bleeding in 10 minutes has not stopped or if the bleeding is large or large, then immediately visit the nearest ER.
You are advised not to take any medicine until you see a doctor or arrive at the nearest emergency room, this is to prevent unexpected side effects of the drug.
Therefore, at this time I cannot give you drug recommendations for handling side effects and complaints of itching and bleeding. Treatment is only given in the ER or given by a doctor who has already done an examination for you. This is to prevent drug side effects and drug complications given without direct examination. Visit the nearest emergency room for the best treatment for bleeding and complaints that you feel.
