After 10 days on just 15 mg Lansoprazole, I had what we assume to be a skin reaction on one arm. I stopped the med immediately but 4 days on, it is just as bad. I discussed it with the GP and am trying antihistamines. The thing is, the skin looks completely normal and I don't think I got across how bad it is. No rash, no welts, no redness - maybe just some teeny swelling. But it is itchy and hypersensitive and if I inadvertently scratch or rub just one little bit, the pain and the burning all the way up the arm are intolerable - it has literally had me writhing on the floor screaming. It's as if I thrust my arm into a fire. At night I have to bandage it in case I inadvertently rub it. Has anyone had anything like this? What can be done? When is it likely to settle down? The thing is it looks normal so it makes me hesitant to go back to the GP
