Well the allergic rash is still covering me and is very itchy today. I have taken the anti-histamine, they daily dose, but that hasn’t done anything. The dexamethazone has reduced the swelling to almost nothing, but the rash if anything is worse.
I called the hospital again today and spoke to Dee again. They have stopped the Septrin that I am currently taking to see if that stops the rash. I took a tablet today as I was taking them on Monday, Wednesday and Friday on my Schedule. I’m not sure when I will see the affect of not taking them i.e the rash start to go. Soon I hope as i’m very itchy. I stop taking the Dexamethazone tomorrow again which is slightly worrying as I may start to get the swelling again.
I am back at the hospital on the 23 Dec where they are going to start me on a different method which I will have to have once a month probably using a nebulizer to breath in the alternative Septrin.
So i’m hoping stopping the current Septrin will have immediate effects and doesn’t last too many days prior to returning to the hospital as I can’t stand it at the moment – its becoming more and more annoying.
