I have broken out in a red rash on my

I have broken out in a red rash on my face, forearms, and V-neck area on my high chest, plus my scalp is itching a lot too. This is now my 4th day having rash. I've tried to figure out cause. I only take Armour Thyroid and BP medication. I think it is probably from my BP medication, edarbi, that I have been taking for 5 yrs. I take 20 mg. @ night 1 hr. before going to bed. Last night I woke up 5 hrs., after taking BP pill, itching like crazy where rash already was, and it had moved up onto my upper arms toward shoulder joint. I am extremely sensitive to B.P. medications; have a 12 yr. history of allergic reactions, starting from being on a Beta Blocker for 15 yrs. prior to the first reaction. I have recently moved 120 miles from my Internist M.D. and don't have a Dr. in my new location. Should I go to Urgent Care, or call my Dr. 120 miles away who knows my history?

My 4 year old daughter has broken out in what appears to be red scabs or bumps on her face, on her fingers she has puffy blisters. She has an appointment with her doctor this afternoon, they asked me if I had any idea what it was and I said no. Do you have any ideas?

I have been getting these red patches on my arms that look like blood under the skin. I just scraped my arm and I have a line of blood but the skin is not broken. What can this be and what causes it? Sometimes, they just appear even when I don t bump or scrape anything.

Hi I have a teenager who just recently developed a skin outbreak. We initially thought that it was exposure to poison ivy/oak but the dr. and school nurse have ruled that out; the skin rash is red & raised and has broken out on both arms and hands as well as a little around the neck area and ankle areas. Dr. prescribed a skin cream and told us to continue with the cream and high doses of Benadryl every 6 hours. This outbreak started late this past Saturday & is not as visible today as it initially and the itching and irritation have also died down--but not gone. Any other recommendations?
