Developed itchy rashes on both sides of torso and insulin dependent. What is the treatment?
User rating for this question
About two months ago I developed an itchy rash on both sides of torso which worsened over a week. At about the end of the week I became ill with nausea, vomiting, low grade fever and diarraehea. On the day I became sick the rash stopped itching and quickly disappeared. Now about 1.5 or 2 months later the rash has returned and is on both sides of torso, but mostly left side. I am wondering if I will become ill again within a week and what this rash followed by intense illness is diagnosed as and should I get some type of treatment. I do not currently have health insurance and I have 48 years of insulin dependent diabetes and recently recovered from chronic fatigue.
