Does taking Toprol for heart disease and high BP cause rash in my body

I am 53 years old and weigh 302 lbs. I have a small rash (welt-like) on my side. It s been there for approx 4 weeks now. It doesn t itch. I have put both hydrocortisone cream and an antifungal cream on it. The rash seems to deminish (but does not go away). Then it returns. I have heart disease and high blood pressure and am currently taking Toprol, Plavix, Norvasc and Hydrochlorothiazide. Can any of these medications trigger such a reaction?

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

If you have responded to the combination treatment ,then most probably its a fungal infection.I would suggest you to use a plain anti fungal cream with oral anti fungal tablet for initial 2 weeks .If you respond to it then continue it for another 2 weeks.If not then switch over to a plain steroid cream .
