Hi good morning

I am sorry to see you have this, when did this start? Is the flucloxacillin for this rash? If so, when was it started?

start 3 weeks ago

Try adding in Loratidine or Cetirizine, both you can buy from the pharmacy without a prescription. I would then use it regularly for a week.

How many per day?

This depends on the strength, Cetirizine is typically once daily therefore that would be my preference.

Thank you

That is my pleasure, I hope that this helps speed up the recovery of this.

If within a few days of taking it, if no benefit, please do ensure you arrange a review with your GP.
