After having Pseudomonas in April, ciprofloxacin not working for it, I was cleared of it in hospital. I suffered chest infections continually until October when I started taking Azithromycin three times per week. Great it works but... I am going crackers with eczema on my neck and face. Everywhere the light gets to so it might cause photosensitivity. Does anyone else get this and what might be the answer?

Hydro-cortisone 1 % m/m cream of your doctor should stop the itching and give the skin time to heal


Sorry I know how to deal with eczema and have 1% and diprobase and every other piece of information to deal with it, I was just wondering if anyone else had a similar problem with this type of antibiotic and maybe had a similar one with less of a side effect. Other than 1% hydrocortisone or prednisone daily, neither of which I wish to do, I am out of ideas.


sorry for leading you of the beaten path I just run this by my IV community nurse and he said it can be a problem of the antibiotic I am on the same one at the moment
