Drug Rashes - How To Manage Them?

Drug Rashes - How To Manage Them?

Drug rashes are generally defined as the reaction of the body to certain kinds of diseases. Different drugs result in different kinds of diseases which sometimes are as dangerous as being life-threatening. There are different types of drug rashes. They can manifest in different forms. Common ones are:

  1. Blisters and swelling: Many drugs result in acute blisters and swelling in different parts of the body. This condition, if unchecked, may aggravate, leading to dangerous consequences.
  2. Prolonged high fever: Continuous rise in fever is often diagnosed as a serious consequence of certain drugs.
  3. Abnormal redness of the skin: Few medicines often result in sudden reddening of the skin. This condition continues till the drug is discontinued.
  4. Rash and itching: This is considered as one of the most common side-effects of medicines. Often medicines result in continuous itching and rashes on the skin that also causes swelling, if unchecked.
  5. Swelling of tissues: Tissues often swell up as a result of consumption of certain medicines. Consequently, the concerned person experiences problems in breathing and often a drastic fall in blood pressure.

However, there are ways that one can adopt in order to combat drug rashes.

  1. Identify and discontinue the drug: One of the most essential ways of combating drug rashes is to identify the drug and immediately discontinue its consumption.
  2. Avoid using chemicals: One way of easy recuperation is to avoid using chemicals, soaps on the affected areas. If continued to use, they aggravate the already caused damage. On the other hand, Calamine can be used for treating drugs.
  3. Wear loose-fitting clothes: Wearing tight clothes that sticks to the body further damages the skin. Instead, one should try to wear loose-fitted clothes that allow the skin to heal.
  4. Apply cool compresses: Taking cool showers or applying cool compresses over the affected areas significantly help to recuperate fast.

My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true? Are there any vitamins.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Hello, it is very important issue while treating asthma in children. As you said your daughter is having asthma, she needs lifelong inhaler therapy. But at minimal maintenance dose that will keep her asthma under control. Though steroids have side effects, it is must to give as preventive therapy. Studies show it causes bones to become soft and brittle but only if taken in high doses. And if you do not take steroid inhaler uncontrolled asthma will cause more problems than steroids. So it is better to continue prevent medicine but at lowest possible maintenance dose.

Asthma is a complicated form of allergy only. It seems you had history of recurrent cold, cough, sneezing, dust allergy etc. Asthma does not directly damages the lungs, it is an issue with the airways. The disease generally starts as frequent infections of cold involving diseases like allergic rhinitis and sinusitis. Later it moves down involving throat also and further down to the respiratory tract. If you do not want to use inhalers then opt for homeopathy, it will take care of you and do the following: 1. Protect yourself from cold environment. 2. Avoid sour food stuffs. 3. Avoid cold drinks. 4. Do jogging and exercise daily, it helps a lot. 5. Be under medication be it any system of medicine to keep disease under check.

Bronchitis is inflammation of bronchus system. Majority of time problem is allergic in condition. Allergy are mainly due to dust pollution food fruits with pesticides etc. Mainly here we have to increase immunity so that no allergy can happen and well this done by homoeo medicines. Safe effective and cheap.

Hi. I can understand your concern. Any exertion can trigger asthma for which you can take your controller inhaler one puff just before exertion. Don't worry, you will be alright. Hope I have solved your query. Wish you good health. Thanks.

My grandma has an severe asthma she was very sick and also not recognizing us. How the asthma can be reduced.

Fellowship in Interventional Pulmonology, DNB (Respiratory Diseases)
Pulmonologist, Thane
Your grandma not recognising you all is not because of asthma. Considering the condition it seems it would be prudent to go for nebulisations at home instead of inhalers. Consult a chest physician so that he can adjust the dosage of nebulisations and the medicines. And she will also need a neurological assessment.

I am the patient with asthma and has taken homeopathic treatment and feeling better from the past two years, but I just would like to know, if there are any natural preparations of tulasi that can be made to treat any urgency and give me relief?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
U can try these remedies:: Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day

Problems---1. Ht block, 2. Dilated aorta, high blood sugar associated. These are dangerous combination. They have released block by putting stents, but dilated aorta will give you trouble if you work hard. Only sedentary work is permitted along with full change of life style including intake of food & liquids. Sugar must be controlled with proper medicine other wise that will lead to reat catastrophy.

I'm 23 years old male and I always start breathing heavily after using stairs or running for a short distance. I'm afraid that I'm having asthma because my mom is also having asthma. So I just wanted to know about some symptoms of asthma and some suggestions from your side will help me a lot. Thank you.

DAA, DNB

Hi. I understand your concerns. Asthma is chronic and a common problem causing symptoms. You will need to undergo a detailed examination and investigations like pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of asthma based on which treatment can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.
