Red,itchy and scaly lower eyelid, blisters and rash on the underarms and chest

My husband if 39 yrs old. He has been on lysinopril and metro propl(intermittent for yrs. he was told to take if bp was over 150) Then his lower eyelid had become very red and ithchy then scaley. The dermo gave him prednisone . He has since developed very dry ITCHY skin. He also has a blistery rash on his underarms, chest, arms legs and groin . There is also a raised red rash on his face and neck and also in the groin area. He is going nuts with the pain and the itchy dryness. Any help would be appreciated.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear Friend,

It seems that you have developed severe idiosyncratic reaction to one of the medicines leading to generalized rash involving your whole body. This requires urgent attention from a medical specialist. treatment might require use of intravenous medication with strong anti-allergic medicines. Hope you get well soon. consult an ophthalmologist in case you develop dry and red eyes during the course of treatment. Take Care
