have had symptoms for approx 1 mo, and getting worse. Been having dogs dipped for demodectic mange for almost a year. One product used is gentamicin sulfate, and I am periodically allergic to sulfa drugs. Taking lots of meds for anxiety, MDD, hypertension, hypothyroidism.

Hey sorry to hear about your probs! I am allergic to sulpha meds and only found out when I was given drops in my eyes and still have the scratches on my corneas to prove it!!! BE CAREFUL!!! This sounds to me like classic sulpha allergy but bear in mind I am no doctor ( but these days that ai8n't saying much!!! ) GOOD LUCK!

Sorry to hear you are suffering like this. But ROBERT is correct you need to head to Dr's now and discontinue this medication. Dont let your self suffer like this, theres really no need to. You could be seriously allergic to the meds you are taking OR have a severe allergic reaction to the dips your dog is having done. Who knows . But I do know this.. you need medical treatment now before this becomes worse! Take care and good luck.. Snakey

terriott-this is where you want to play it safe--i suggest you stop everything take 1 medication the one neccessary then wait if no reaction then add another, i had reaction to oxycodone, then lisinopril, now a new blood pressure med metoprolol welps, streaks in my arm bumps all over, so i now know that they are hives--- that means dont add s___ else, until i get complete allergy testing, i am diabetic, hypertension, so pills for those 2 illness and a benedryll is all the hell i am taking-this just occurred saturday, i want my life you know, and the only persons face i want to see right now is the allergy testing guy-no other drugs of any sort will i take, and my foods will be simple so that nothing will be triggered at this time; begin to take control over your life--- see who will make the neccessary changes--i am looking for the results of my testing to know exactly whats going to endanger my life-thats my position...
good luck, be safe, we cannot afford to be ginnypigs!!! and if you are allergic in any form to sulfur--then who would take a risk to prescribe gentimicin sufur--- thats not a good choice antibiotic why wasnt straight pennicillin given this is why i say --- you must take control these people will kill us--with that precaution mess--quite frankly doctors today look at situations(as if they were still in the textbooks) they seem not to observe the severity of people lives--until your at deaths door then they want to pay attention, yet we need them to give expert advice on such matters--- but its just so risky--please be careful, i am vtech10
