    Advil Cold and Sinus

    HI everyone - it's been a while since I've been on here - I have my sinuses pretty much under control.

    I have a question - my roommate took 4 Advil Cold and Sinus Caplets a few weeks ago - he noticed a rash on his neck within 24 hours - he's never had anything like this happen to him - he quit taking the medicine right away (it's the first time he's ever taken anything like this).

    Anyway, it's been about 3 weeks now, and he still has the red rash on his neck.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Does this sound like an allergic reaction to the medicine?

    Does he have to give the medicine time to get "out of his system"? If so, how long does this take?

    Any imput would be appreciated - thanks!

    Hi Pizzzzza,
    Your roommate should go to the doctor. And at the very least, call and speak to the nurse. Also, it's not good to take more than the recommended dose of any medication unless directed by a doctor to do so. I hope your roommate feels well soon.
    Embrace the beauty of silent moments and simple things.
