Yes, perfect. Have you stopped the Sporonox?
Benadryl is an antihistamine and is often used to relieve itching associated with an allergic reaction.
The usual adult dose for this purpose is 25 to 50 mg orally every 4 to 6 hours as needed, not to exceed 300 mg/24 hours.

Yes! My son was prescribed Sporanox due to what the dr. said was ringworm on his forearms. He's 22. Yesterday was day 7 on 200mg once daily to be taken for 14 days. He began a bit of itching yesterday, but wasn't a big deal. Today, he came home from work and everywhere he would scratch or rub turned red. He doesn't really have welts or hives, but tiny "dots" and is really itchy. He has them on his face also, but no swelling or shortness of breath. We called the dr. and she left a voicemail instructing to discontinue, but didn't suggest anything to relieve the itching. Thank you for your reply!
