The Robo itch is intense and painful itching/rash caused by taking recreational doses of Robitussin
Cold and Cough medicine. Does not happen to everyone, but if it happens to you, you can sometimes avoid it by taking an antihistamine
, such as benadryl
. Watch out for syrups containing antihistamines though!
