Metronidazole 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.

Describe Your Metronidazole Experience Here: after taking a total of 4 pills, 1 first day 2 second day and 1 in third day. I had symptoms begin on that second day. There was tingling in my lips with burning in my lips and tongue. The next day they look swollen. My ear was all congested, around opening of nose it burns and I have nasal congestion and runny. My eye lid swelled up and I have a confirmed bacterial infection in eye.(may be related to meds) eye dr wouldn't say. Doctor who out me on meds told me not to take anymore, so I'm waiting for these symptoms to go away. How long after meds are stopped will symptoms go away? I've had alot of symptoms some common some not so.

Sun, 15 Feb 2009
I am deeply indebted to Danny Smith with his comments about Metronidazole. I was also prescribed Metronidazole for a tooth complaint and after experiencing dizziness and being very unwell with nausea, happened to find his remarks on the net. After taking each tablet my symptoms increased and finally searched the net for some information. I immediately stopped my medication and alerted my Dr who has prescribed anti nausea pills and amoxycillin which have settled my symptoms and the infection has reduced in anticipation of root canals to be performed in a couple of days.
