I Live in Africa, Tanzania, I am European 47yo.
10 days ago i had itching on my legs, not all lover just in a few areas.
like a rash / itchy bites, i ended up getting most of my body itchy,no rash no spots, i took zynet 1 tab it went away.
I have had a root canal infection which has been bothering me for 3 months, dentist was away so could not complete job it was getting bad, was taking cipro for that, but it didnt want to take the pain away.
LAST SATURDAY i Developed a temperature 38c.
fever chills, heat racing,, tuesday i went to the dentist he recleaned out the root canal. i started on amoxil with something else 375ml
this fever feels like glandular fever, the amoxil has now fixed the tooth and pain subsuded thursday.
fever lifted today during day but in the morning when i wake up i sweat like a tap until say 10am then it stops no temp al lday then tonight i get 37.8temp again. this has been the case since saturday.
I have had maliria test twice bith negative.
I asked if the white blood cells were raised and they siad they were normal.

Please suggest what next, still taking the amoxil 375 tabs,, they continue tomorrow only.
i dont think typhoid as no stomach pain,,,

here you tend to test and treat yourself it is safer at times,,
i can buy any drug here and do any test..
Thanks in advance

  • get your blood sugar level checked dear. The rash and itching is not from bites - though it may seem to be so. If your blood sugar is very high the itching is caused by damage to teh nerves from the high blood glucose levels.I Live in Africa, Tanzania, I am European 47yo.10 days ago i had itching on my legs, not all lover just in a few areas.like a rash / itchy bites, i ended up getting most of my body itchy,no rash no spots, i took zynet 1 tab it went away.I have had a root canal infection which has been bothering me for 3 months, dentist was away so could not complete job it was getting bad, was taking cipro for that, but it didnt want to take the pain away.LAST SATURDAY i Developed a temperature 38c.fever chills, heat racing,, tuesday i went to the dentist he recleaned out the root canal. i started on amoxil with something else 375mlthis fever feels like glandular fever, the amoxil has now fixed the tooth and pain subsuded thursday.fever lifted today during day but in the morning when i wake up i sweat like a tap until say 10am then it stops no temp al lday then tonight i get 37.8temp again. this has been the case since saturday.I have had maliria test twice bith negative.I asked if the white blood cells were raised and they siad they were normal.Please suggest what next, still taking the amoxil 375 tabs,, they continue tomorrow only.i dont think typhoid as no stomach pain,,, here you tend to test and treat yourself it is safer at times,,i can buy any drug here and do any test..Thanks in advance
