I am suffering from bacterial pneumonia and I have been prescribed ibuprofen for fever and to decrease the pain. However, I have developed some sort of rash, and I stopped taking it. IS there anything else I can use for fever and this pain? Will other anti-fever meds also cause such reactions?

You did a smart thing by quitting ibuprofen. Rash is a common side effect of this drug. Patients may even develop difficulty breathing, or puffiness or swelling in your face or around your eyes. You can try with acetaminophen. Brand name is Tylenol. It is used for the same purpose to reveal pain and high temperature. It doesn’t necessarily mean that if one drug caused side effects that another will too. However, I believe you should report this rash to your doctor. Take care!
