pantoprazole rash
Make it go away. The rash on my hands is beyond belief since I was prescribed Pantoprazole. I am using fresh aloe and it only provides temporary relief. I just want the rash to go away. I have a weak auto-immune system and it looks like I cannot fight this one off. ## Hello, Marsha! How are you? It isn't normal for a rash from a systemic medication to be isolated to just a certain area of the body, such as your hands. Have you been exposed to anything else new? IS the rash itchy or just a red noticeable rash? Have you consulted your doctor? Are you on any other medications?

Please provide information about Pantoprazole
I have not been able to find a medicine that helps with what my doctor thinks is Gerd. The last medicine was protonix and within 21/2 weeks I am having side effects. Ankles are spasming as well as hands however I have spondilosis. I have never had spasms in these areas until protonix and I still have food that gets stuck and continuous hiccups. My doctor put me on 400 mgs of magnesium. Any answers or opinions? ## Hello, JLM! How are you doing? It isn't actually that food gets stuck, though it does feel like it. It's esophageal erosion and irritation there. Sometimes you swallow something that irritates it and gets it acting up, so it feels like there is a lump there, but there actually isn't. And yes, that is a sign of GERD. What other medications have you tried? I had many ...
