For the past couple of weeks I ve noticed that I broke out in a skin rash that on my upper back that appears to be growing. It itches like eczema but it s spreading slowly. Starting from my upper left side of my back down to my left waste side. What could be the cause? Also i have kidney issues because my urine is not reacting properly.

Hi,

This may be due to various causes like fungal infection, new medicine or drug reaction or may also be related to your kidney issues.

Physical exam is needed to confirm things.

Hope it helps!
