Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. Dr. Yogindra

Expert:  Dr. Y. Vasavada replied 4 months ago.

Hi, allergy is two types, immediate (anaphylaxis shock) and late. First one is more risky and late one occuring over next day or two can easily be managed, having skin rash, abdominal symptoms etc.

So you may only get late one, so relax and complete the course without any worry.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
It's been 12 hours and I feel fine so I will be fine to take the next lot without any problems my doctor sed it's highly unlucky that I will have a reaction to it is that correct
Expert:  Dr. Y. Vasavada replied 4 months ago.

Yes one is not likely to be allergic to drug taken first time ever, one needs previous exposure to get sensitized.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I don't understand what you mean do you mean that beacuse I had it yesterday and today and haven't had any type of signs of a reaction does that mean that I won't become allergic now
Expert:  Dr. Y. Vasavada replied 4 months ago.

Yes mostly but still late reaction can occur after drug is metabolized and circulates in blood, reaction can occur to by-product of drug too. Please just keep close watch for any rash, itching, hives etc.

Hi I have been fine with daktarin I have been using it since Friday and my symptoms went on sat and I took it yesterday and took it today do you think that will be fine to stop taking it after today beacuse some places say take to days after symptoms have gone and others say take up to a week after what would u recommend
Expert:  Dr. Y. Vasavada replied 4 months ago.

A week more after cure is fine. Oral thrush in adults indicates low immunity so early stoppage may bring back infection.

Good luck. Please click on positive rating.
