I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Drug rashes due to allergy can occur due to any drug as they are foreign proteins.
Is the rash itchy? Raised weals?
Have you previously taken any metronidazole or that category of medicines?
Which parasitic infestation do you have?
Be watchful for breathlessness, itchiness, giddiness…. Signs of an allergy.
If there is rapid worsening, stop the drug and seek medical attention.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
