Azithromycin Erythema Causes and Reviews


Fifth disease is a viral infection caused by parvovirus B19. The virus only infects humans; it's not the same parvovirus that dogs and cats can get. Fifth disease mostly affects children. Symptoms can include a low fever, cold symptoms, and a headache. Then you get a red rash on your face. It looks like a "slapped cheek." The rash can spread to the arms, legs, and trunk. Adults who get it might also have joint pain and swelling.

Fifth disease spreads easily, through saliva and mucus. You can get it when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Frequently washing your hands might help prevent getting the virus. Most people become immune to the virus after having it once.

Fifth disease is usually mild and goes away on its own. However, it can be serious if you

  • Are pregnant
  • Are anemic
  • Have cancer or a weak immune system

Azithromycin Erythema Reviews

Jewel.... I too have loss taste and smell. Have u regained yours?

Thu, 08 Mar 2012

I am female, 59, and have not been sick in 6 years.  I got bronchitis for which the doctor prescribed Azithromycin.  Within a day, I had severe panic attacks.  I was very sick and wanted so much to rest but found I had to keep moving to keep the panic attacks at bay. I walked outdoors and my husband drove me around so I could have things to look at.  TV frightened me, books frightened me, the internet frightened me.  I have NEVER had a panic attack before.  I was beyond amazed.  This stuff is poison. I refused to take the 6th dose.  Panic attacks lessened and stopped altogether on 7th day after I first took it.

Wed, 18 Jan 2012

After first dosage 3 days ago, I have not been able to sleep at night.  That on top of the bad cold and upper respiratory infection I am so tired and cannot get well with this going on. I have 2 tabs left and will not take anymore.  I have to get some rest as I work full time and have to be able to do my job.

Fri, 12 Oct 2012

This morning I woke up to rashes on both upper arms and across my back. Won't be taking anymore of this stuff. Will stick with homeopathic remedies and see if it works.
