I started taking Terbinafine 3+ weeks ago for a toe nail fungus. I woke up one day to a bizarre rash over my torso. Went to the doctor and no one could figure out what it was. Over a couple days it got extremely bad, spread over my body. I've stopped taking the drug, am on a z pack of Prednisone and covered in Sarna lotion. Went to the dermatologist today who confirmed it's a reaction to Terbinafine. The symptoms are like measles, with no fever, but it's a burning tingling itch. Doctor says it will take several weeks to subside. I now have learned this is not uncommon, but not considered a serious reaction. I'm surprised - it's worse than any severe poison ivy I've ever had (and I'm allergic to poison Ivy). Anyone had this?
