Brief Answer: Allopurinol can cause itch and rash Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query One of the side effect of allopurinol is rash, these rashes tend to be itchy. It is part of a hypersensitivity syndrome. I strongly recommend that you stop the drug, please continue antihistamine and lotions. A safer drug which provides the same effect of allopurinol is Febuxostat, please approach your physician with my recommendation I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health Regards
