Hi Tony

Atorvastatin is a cholesterol lowering medication used very frequently these days.

Lipitor is the brand name for the atorvastatin so it is exactly the atorvastatin just the name is different.

I do not think so brand change can lead to rash, please consult your doctor to see if some thing else is doing this.

Hope it helps.
