Hello,

My father suffering an inflammatory Bowel Disease and I think this is almost 3 yrs now and we just discover it last week after his colonoscopy. The doctor give him a medicine that is called "diflucan" and other related medicines. I just notice the my father having a hives on his feet and he has also had a high fiver and cough. I believe that this medicine has a lot of side-effects that might also cause fiver, cough and etc... And we notice that symptoms right now. Should we still use the medicine even if there's a side-effects to him? Please advise.

The best advice anyone here can give you is to contact your father's Dr. It could be side affects from the meds, but it could also be something else.

Please contact his doctor. This is very important. Keep us informed on how he is doing tho..we do care.

I hope you called your doctor or took your father to the emergency room. Any time hives are present and an allergy is suspected, you should not take that medication again and get seen by a doctor as soon as you can. Allergic reactions progress with each exposure to medication, so every time he takes it, he is likely to have a worse reaction. Hives are bad news, as are high fever and coughing.
