Brief Answer: Allergic reaction Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Revlimid is Lenalidomide and it is known to cause allergic reaction in the form of rashes. If I were to be your treating doctor I would have asked you to stop the drug as taking more pills might worsen the situation. For now you could take Tab Levocetrizine at night to help you with the rash and also apply calamine lotion for the itch. I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health Regards
