I have swollen lips, red blistery rash and itch all over. I called my doctor and all he did was switch me to allopurinol. I've been off of it for four days and it seems to be getting worse. No breathing problems. Suggestions? When can I expect it to subside?
I had the same thing happen to me. Almost started like a hive rash. Itchy head then body. Face swelling. Tounge swelling. Had to go to the ER. Benadryl helps it pretty quick. Took two of them and symptoms went away within an hour. Very scary thou.
