Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This can be a side effect of prochlorperazine.
Hence, it is better to stop for now.
Tongue and cheek peeling occur due to the inflammation.
Nothing much you can do about it.
This will subside shortly.
You can try taking supplements like zinc 50 mg and riboflavin 200 mg daily.
Your nausea, abdominal pain are likely due to the viral infection.
This will also subside.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
