Brief Answer:
Please kindly provide the needed information

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for using HCM to post your question.

I read carefully your question and I understand your concern.

What I understand from your description seems like a generalised rash. I will need some more information in order to give you a better opinion.

How is your general condition- fever, fatigue, other symptoms?
Can you see any relation to smething you have eaten or gotten in contact with?
Did benadryl help?
Anyone else in your family with the same symptoms?
Can you please upload a picture in our system so I can have a look at it?

Looking forward to your follow up. I will be happy to give a more accurate answer once provided that information.

Dr. Papaqako.
