It seems you are have a reaction after consuming cocaine. Most such reactions subside soon but since it is an illicit substance I recommend for an analysis by a doctor soon.

Thanks. Please close the discussion if you do not have further queries.

How long should it take for the rash to subside? days weeks what?
Answered by Dr. Chakravarthy Mazumdar 8 hours later

Simple rash subsides within 48 t0 72 hours if you do not coke again.

If prolonged I stick to my earlier advice of seeing a GP in the area.
