Taking Yaz to regulate periods, red rash on sternum, had flu

My 17 year old daughter is on Yaz to regulate periods and has developed a flesh colored rash on her sternum during the last two months. The rash in a place that she had a bumpy red rash when she had the flu a few years ago. The red rash would come and go and was not a problem when she would go for her physicals in Sept. Any ideas what these new patches might be? I have an appointment with the doctor next Tues.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum.
With the available details, there appears to be least possibility of use of yaz and sternal rash.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist / dermatologist and should go for thorough check up.
Treatment depends on exact diagnosis.
Meanwhile in my personal opinion, you can apply betamethasone ointment for relief of your symptoms .
