What causes prickly heat boils on the face along with sore throat?

default
Posted on Tue, 8 Aug 2017
Question: I went to the doctor on July 6th because I thought I was having an allergic reaction to something- my symptoms were: a prickly-heat like texture to my face and I thought my throat was closing/sore.
My doctor prescribed my Mupirocin ointment2% and Loratadine 19MG tabs.
Friday, July 7th I developed a large red swelling beneath my left eye.
4 days later, 7/10 things are worse: I have begun developing large puss-filled whitehead bumps on my face and a few bumps on my neck & legs. I may have a slightly raised temperature.
I have no idea of what this is or if it will keep progressing.
I have Crohn's Diease & MS. No known allergies.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist).
I have gone through your query and I have viewed the Image.
This seems like a severe hypersensitivity reaction to an Insect bite i.e an Irritant Reaction. I can see blisters and dark necrotic skin in the center of the lesion on left side of temple and a few more scattered lesions on face.
Do you have any symptoms like burning or itching sensation?

Regards
