Hello There. i can understand your concern. its better to stop the medicine since you have found out that you are allergic to it. you can apply a benzyl peroxide cream for acne and wash your face with perobar 2.5% soap thrice a day. for itching, you can take a tablet fexofenadine once or twice a day after food for 2 days. drink lots of water. best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
