Auroflam mx side effect treatment

My wife was prescribed this medicine for use after seeing the dentist. She got a lot of stomach aches and now her lips have developed a rash that hurts. What can we do? She stopped using it for about seven days now. The stomach ache has stopped but the rash on the lips are still there and not going away. She went to the pharmacist and they said to drink lots of water. Any suggestions please? ## Hello, Micah! How are you and your wife? A rash on the lips like that is usually due to a herpes simplex virus, which is easy to catch and nothing to really worry about, it should clear up on its own after a couple weeks. However, there is no cure and it will likely recur a couple of times a year. While the rash is still active, she should see her doctor to have a culture done to confirm if that...

am not feeling any relief from the pain for shingles have taken 4 last day and a half as presribed

Have shingles,took 4 hydroco/acetaminop 5-325mg tab qua in last 2 days as prescribed have not had any relief from excruciating pain. When should I get some relief from pain? ## Hello, Rayna! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry that you're so miserable! The good news is that once is clears up, Shingles doesn't usually recur! Something topical might help a bit more, if used in conjunction with the pills. There are things available over the counter, such as Dermoplast and others that are sold for sunburn and such. If your doctor says it's okay for you to use one, then they can even prescribe something, or your pharmacist can help you find something to try. That problem with herpes viruses is that they are a skin condition, so they are topical and while you can take an oral ...

I used Zyclara as directed for 2 weeks, the last 4 or 5 days on my cheeks. It peeled as I expected but left some scaring on 1 cheek, and both cheeks turned bright red. The redness did not go away in the following 2 weeks so my Dr told me to stop the 2nd treatment that was to begin Nov 28, 2019. Now 2 months lated the cheeks are just as red after Oracea 40mg and 2 different Rx creams with zero results. What now? Am I stuck with red cheeks forever? ## I also used Zyclara on my face as directed for 2 weeks on, then 2 weeks off. Had a few scabby red marks, but those faded before I began the second round of cream on June 14. Overnight, my face was full of red spots, much more reaction than the first time, which is "unusual" according to my doctor. I stopped on the 19th as I developed...

How many hours apart is 5 times a day?

My mom was given Acyclovir 800 mg to take 5 times a day. What does that mean??? ## 24/5=4.8 hours or 288 minutes or 4 hours & 48 minutes ## Your math is right, but should we take the number of waking hours and divide by 5 rather than the entire 24 hour period? So accounting for sleep, 16 hours awake / 5 times = 3.2, so about every 3.5 hours? Update - I looked up the Acyclovir dosage guidelines on DailyMed, and it states "800 mg every 4 hours orally, 5 times daily for 7 to 10 days." ... So it seems like somewhere in the middle of both of our answers lol
