Clindamycin Pruritus Causes and Reviews


What is
itching ?

Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.

What causes itching ?

Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are

  • Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin
  • Irritating chemicals, cosmetics, and other substances
  • Parasites such as pinworms, scabies, head and body lice
  • Pregnancy
  • Liver, kidney, or thyroid diseases
  • Certain cancers or cancer treatments
  • Diseases that can affect the nervous system, such as diabetes and shingles
What are the treatments for itching ?

Most itching is not serious. To feel better, you could try

  • Applying cold compresses
  • Using moisturizing lotions
  • Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
  • Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
  • Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity

Contact your health care provider if your itching is severe, does not go away after a few weeks, or does not have an apparent cause. You may need other treatments, such as medicines or light therapy. If you have an underlying disease that is causing the itching, treating that disease may help.


Clindamycin Pruritus Reviews

Wed, 21 Mar 2012

I started taking it (150 mg - 2 tablets every six hours) a week ago for a root canal infection. It wasn't long before I felt tremendous Verdigo/dizzyness and fatigue, especially in the morning and, after walking up a moderately elevated ramp from the beach, had quite severe angina pressure and pain. I took my last two pills this morning before because I was told to finish it and I realized the exhaustion I've been feeling could be related and looked it up.

I quit clinamycin300 after six days because of diarrhea and uncontrollable bowel moments. my doctor now tells me to take Imodium which it says not to on info. sheet. Not sure what to do.

Mon, 30 Nov 2009

This is day 9 of a 10-day regimen of Clindamycin 300 mg. I woke up this morning with a rash all over my body that is probably linked to the medication. It was prescribed for a bacterial infection that developed in my right hand (from either a sticker from yard work or an insect bite). The redness and swelling went down completely two days after I was given an initial injection of the drug and took the pill three times per day.
Can I treat this rash with benedryl? The blisters are also in my mouth and my throat is mildly sore.

Wed, 22 Sep 2010

I have MRSA again and have been on Clyndamycin 2 150 mg tablets 4 times/day for a week. I am having very severe chest pain and everytime I eat anything it burns so bad that I can't keep eating. Also having bad abdominal pain. I have Behcet's syndrome and a fairly raw G.I tract is normal, this is beyond that though. Any ideas?
