I recently had a bad drug allergy reaction to aciclovir I was given the medication to treat a mouth ulcer that the doctor thought could be impetigo and I had a high dose of Aciclovir in tablet form. However I am violently allergic to Aciclovir (now I know!) but my question is if you do have a drug allergy what is the best method immediate self care?
Hi. Usually if you have a bad allergic reaction, your doctor will prescribe Prednisone to suppress the immune response and calm the reaction. You should take Benadryl and drink lots of water to flush the substance out of your system. If you have a rash, try some topical cortisone also. Hope you feel better.
Thanks @A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member I actually never thought of the steroids Prednisone. In my head that’s just for the asthma I never considered this for suppressing the immune system in anyway.
Great advice thanks
