Just when I thought I was over my HA fears, my beloved 63 year old mother is currently not feeling well.
It started this Wednesday when was having a sore throat. She was slightly feverish during that day. She went to her doctor's office and was given antibiotics as the doctor diagnosed it as bacterial infection.
She was also coughing with some phlegm.
Fast forward this Sunday, she claims to be feeling better but she told me that last night, a strange rash appeared in some parts of her body.
It was itchy, she said. She went to bed and when she woke up, the itchiness and rashes disappeared.
But tonight, it seems that the itching has returned. I don't see any visible rash which makes me even more scared. I tried to give her anti itch lotion and it doesn't seem to work. This makes me more scared that this isn't just a skin allergy.
When she took her meds for the sore throat and cough, there was no allergic reaction immediately. I don't think it's the meds causing the itching because it should've happened the first time she took the first tablet.
I am scared that it is the big C as itching is a symptom! She has no other symptoms aside from the itching, coughing, and sore throat. She has, however, told me that she has been feeling better since Wednesday.
I can't think straight!
