Ramipril 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.


Ramipril Pruritus Reviews

Sat, 05 Jan 2013

Have been taken off Ramipril... I was on 7.5mg. First I had the cough and servere tingling in the face and legs. Then came the puffiness that was gradual. Feeling generally unwell. I have been off Ramipril for the past 3 weeks. Just on felodpine 2.5mg at the moment my bp is around 125/80 in the past went up to 180/111. I have lost 2.1/2 stone in weight I am 66years of age. The only problem now is I still fill edgy, still some tingling in my face puffiness has gone.  I do feel that Ramipril needs to be looked at more carefully. As do other bp tablets... Seems to me they can do more harm than good in some people.
