Had gall bladder removal surgery. Red rashes over midriff, abdomen. Cause?

On March 11 I had surgery to remove my gall bladder . I was initially nausiated and dizzy but returned home the next day. On 3/13 I noticed this red rash all over my midriff and abdomen as well as on each of my sides. It looks like prickly heat but doesn t necessarily itch. I had hoped it would get better by now---one day past a week but don t think it looks any better. What could this be caused from: anesthetic , liver, bile , ? ? ?

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
well,this could be allergy reaction to skin cleaning substance or wounds infectionb if this is around the incision. I am sure it will subside soon,if not you may need some topical or systematic antibiotic treatment.
Wish you good health. Regards
