HELP! Rash

HELP! Rash

Me again

So I am on day 4 of Champix and it is helping me cut down hugely before the big quit on Monday. I am now smoking maybe 5 a day compared with 15-20 last week 😱

However, I have noticed a rash on my hand. Like heat blisters come up in the last hour or so and I am becoming irashtional (see what I did there)?! Anyway, has anyone else who has take Champix had this problem? How long will it last? Will I need an amputation?!

Thank you in advance

From the rashy one 😁

Looks like amputation at the elbow to me, only joking! I don't know and haven't taken champix so no use to you at all just thought I'd reply so u didn't feel alone.

Are you sure it's not just a heat rash? 😀

Fairly confident it's not the heat although it is super hot today! I will monitor it and read the side effects leaflet over and over until I come up with the worse case scenario, then I will get the chainsaw out! Haha! Thank you for your reply 😃 I always consult Dr Google before an actual Dr then I can present my case for major surgery on a bruised eyelash 😆

Lol there some people on here that use / d champix so they can advise u or as u said it would be on the side effects lists. U could try anti histamines? Might work if it an allergy you might have brushed ur hand against something.

I'll go now because I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about! 😂😂

Welcome to the group Lydia. I used champix on one of my many attempts in stopping. But never got a rash with taking them. Have you checked the side effects sheet you get with the tablets. Or you could ask your pharmacist or GP take care x

Thank you ☺️ I will monitor it and then ask if it gets worse and I have full on swelling lol! It's just so ugly looking but if it is a side effect it won't last forever and will be worth it to get me off the sticks 🚭🚭🚭

No I really don't remember him I was thinking of benny Hill :-S god he did give me the creaps :| :-)

No its not because I am too young. Briefly remember him when I was younger I have been smoking 31 years so unless I started when I was a toddler that makes me old :-) I just don't remember him.

you may wish to call your GP and see if this is a standard side effect of Champix, or maybe they need to reduce your dosage?  I have not been on any medications for quitting so I can't share any experience with you :/

Aup Rashy one :D :D Love it :D :D

Its great to hear the champix is stating to work and helping you to cut down on your ciggy intake :) :) just flippin looooving it :) :)

As for the becoming irrational :o thats just the norm Lydia :D :D but the rash and swelling of your hand is not, soooo, maybe you have been stung or bitten by an insect or something :o especially if its just one hand :o I would advise you to go see your local Chemist or GP :) just to be on the safe side eh :) :)

Take care now :)
