Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Symptoms of a red rash in various parts of the body and itching are most likely a form of allergy. Allergy is a condition when the body responds excessively to a substance called an allergen. Allergens can vary and can vary from person to person. There are allergens, animal hair, dust, crab, nuts, various drugs, and actually anything can be allergens. So far no research has been able to reveal why someone is allergic to certain ingredients.
Regarding your case, it is true that cefadroxil is an antibiotic, and if you have had a history of drug allergy, it could be due to cefadroxil. However, you should know that even if it causes allergies, you should not just stop using the drug. At a minimum if it will be replaced, there is continuity and will not be interrupted. This is due to the potential for bacteria that infect the body to become resistant to antibiotics and later on to be more difficult to cure.
So our advice is that you should visit the doctor who gave you the medicine, and tell him that you are allergic which is possibly caused by cefadroxil. Your doctor will later replace it with other drugs to prevent postoperative infections, as well as give drugs to relieve the reaction. Naturally, the allergic response does not go away immediately after you stop the drug because the components of the drug may still be circulating in your body. If the condition does not improve, then consult a dermatologist to find out the cause.
Meanwhile, apply a cold compress to the itchy area, do not scratch, and sprinkle with salicylic powder that you can get at the nearest pharmacy. There is no taboo for green coconut water, but its effect as an allergy neutralizer has not been clinically proven. So, hopefully it answers your question.
