Diagonised with CLL. Have rashes. On topical ointment. Treat acne?

I m 53, male, have CLL (diagnosed in 2008) and have been doing pretty well without treatment. I feel good in general. For the past year I ve had a rash (could be acne? or follicles?) on my abdomen. Doesn t itch . My dermatologist has me using antibiotic topical ointment. I have an appointment with my hematologist in October. Do I need to be any more concerned about this rash? Or just keep treating it as acne?

As you have CLL so it is better that you should not be prescribed any medications to eat. AS the problem is non itchy so you can continue to apply the ointment. Meanwhile you can meet a dermatologist to take best guidance.
