I took 4 tablets of Secnidazole to treat amoebasis and got acute skin rashes. What does it indicate? What should i do? ## Hello, Irene! How are you?

Secnidazole 2 grams during pregnancy

I suffered from infection hence my doctor subscribed fladazole tabs 2grams to be taken once then after taking the medication i found out i was pregnant around 2 weeks i have read that secnidazole present in fladazole tabs causes fetus malformation.
