I went to the hospital last night because I suspected I was having a reaction to an antibiotic prescribed to me two days prior, called Azithromycin. I began itching all over my body, and sooner or later, small blisters appeared on the itchy areas. These blisters are yellow, and surrounded by a red area. As of right now they are spotting my face, under my chin, my shoulders, back, on the back of my right knee, on my arms, on my pantline, and most noticeably a large patch on the left side of my left breast. The hospital staff told me to just simply take Benadryl, switched my antibiotics, and sent me on my way. But it seems the rash keeps spreading and Benadryl just doesn't help the intense itching whatsoever, so please. If anyone has some advice to treat these blisters, or at least help reduce the discomfort and itching, I'd extremely appreciate it. Until then, I'll be pushing liquids and trying to expel these antibiotics out of my system as quickly as possible.

  • Try an oatmeal bath - take a cup of oats and put in a cheesecloth bag and run a warm bath...this is very soothing to the skin. A good aloe product like Herbal Aloe Force skin gel with colloidal silver would help. Also try green tea to help dry up the blisters. Green tea and colloidal silver have excellent antimicrobial properties. Get yourself a good quality probiotic and start taking this daily. This will help counteract the bad effects of the antibiotic. What antibiotic did they switch you on? Many antibiotics cause rashes and this one may as well.Best wishesDOM

  • It sounds exactly like something I had a few years ago. I cannot remember what it is called.It is a virus. It starts with a larger one on your abdomen/torso area, and slowly spreads. There really isn't anything that can be done. They gave me some cream to keep the spots from itching. The not so great thing about it, is that it has to cover your entire body to reach it's "life cycle" and then it goes away. It took about 3 months. It covered every inch of my body, face, neck, everywhere. Then it slowly went away. I just looked at it as doing a polka dot impression for a few months. I will try to find out what it was called, and get back to you with it.
