Rash that resembles chicken pox. Fractured leg. Treat both?

For approximately 2 weeks I ve been breaking out in a rash that resembles chicken pox . It appears on different parts of the body and will disappear as quickly as it appeared. I did fracture my leg in 2 places back in mid June & developed severe fracture blisters which were lanced & am still under doctor s care. I guess I m wondering not only what it could be but also how to treat it. I am a 72 yr. female Thank you, Kathryn

Thanks for writing to us.
The rash that is appearing at different places can be due to a viral infection or an iune related disorder. This is not related to any infection or the fracture that you had. Oral steroids can help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
