Default Rash from Factive

I was prescribed Factive for ten days for a lung and throat infection. The medicine worked great and knocked out the infection. However, on day 12 I broke out in an itchy rash from head to toe and today was even worse. The rash started as small dots and lines and has progresed to itchy, patchy areas. I have been taking Benadryl and trying to stay cool, as heat and sunlight irritate it. The antihistamines don't do a whole lot for the rash. I hope it is better tomorrow. I won't be taking it again.
