After constantly coughing for almost one year with bronchitis, I was given factive after taking numerous antibiotics.<br>On the 8th day I broke out with a hideous rash, first torso, face, neck, back, legs, and feet. The itching on my feet drove me crazy. The itching would not stop.<br>I did not know that this particular drug would cause these horrible hives.<br>My face is also splotchy with the hives.<br>I saw the nurse practitioner this past Friday. She gave me a shot, but the hives have worsened. I've been taking benedryl and will take a cool Aveeno bath to lessen the itching.<br>I sure hope this goes away soon.<br>I did not read about the side effects prior to taking the meds because I was desperate(sp) to relieve my coughing.<br>
