Hello and thanks for your query.

I shall make an effort to provide you with good professional recommendations specific to your questions.


It is not a gangrene.

I can speculate looking at the pictures, that it is some kind of generalized rash like lesions, related to your allergic history, or superficial skin infection. but certainly not gangrene.

As you have realized, I recommend you to visit the dermatologist for a review and appropriate treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available for follow up.
