Rash on the inside of bicep where implanon was implanted, previous rashes during pregnancy. Related symptoms?

i have a rash on the inside of my bicep and it just so happens it is over the area where i had my implanon implanted. i had it implanted 8 months ago and am just now getting the rash and it looks a lot like the pupps rash i had on my stomach when i was pregnant. i don t know if it is related but i figured i would add that in.

hello..thanks for sharing your query

Since it is already 8 months since the insertion was done, I wont think that the Implanon should be a cause of the rashes you have.
You may apply a mild topical steroid for 3-4 days to see if it improves.If you have itching, oral anti histaminics may be taken.However, if your lesions persist , you must visit a dermatologist.
PUPPP rash is a pregnancy related condition and resolves mostly within a week of delivery. A few women continue to experience symptoms into the postpartum period, but i think this not be related to the present symptoms.
Hope this is helpful.Take care.
