Question: I recently developed a rash after quiting drinking and eating sugar . It's all over my arms , legs ,chest and back . It's little red spots that become itchy and then the skin peels a bit and then they're just red . I don't have any other problems . I've been talking blood pressure medication for over a year ,so I don't think it's that . I weigh 300 pounds and work outside . I shower everyday and don't smoke cigarettes. Thanks .
