    It's possible that you're having an allergic reaction to the drug (possibly the acetaminophen in it). I don't know why it would take so long to kick in but while most people associate an allergic reaction with difficulty breathing rash and itching also commonly occur. Since they can be precursors to a more serious situation (such as difficulty breathing) you should contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately and see what they have to say. Good luck!

    This is an allergic reaction.  They can develope over time.  Try taking it with an anti-histamine or get a new rx.
