Older skin reacting with cancer pain meds

Postby Hoddy0206 on Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:06 pm

I am finding that one of my pain killing drugs gives me bright red, flushed skin. Do I need to modify my skin routine in order to protect my skin?

Thank you Hoddy,

it is possible that opiates (e.g. codein), aspirin and neurofen can make face redder ( it is called urticaria). Try to minimise exposure to triggers.
I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
