Could I be Allergic to Triflexis???
lzwhizard posted:
Started my dogs on Triflexis approx 1 month ago. We're very close -- they sleep with me and the little male rides on my shoulders in the car. Have been experiencing a sliglthly raised rash, angry red in color in areas where I've had contact with dogs. Have washed everything -- several times -- bleach and very hot water. Unrelieved by Benadryl. This is the only new exposure I can come up with. Anybody out there know the potential for human exposure to this drug??? I need help! Thanks!
Bernadine Cruz, DVM responded:
I have been prescribing Trifexis since it was released on the market and have not any of my clients report such a reaction. I would recommend that you make an appointment to see your own doctor and call the Elanco customer support line at 1-888-545-5973. Please do not ignore this issue.
