What is the treatment for a skin rash?

I was diagnosed with Dengue 10 days back and now my platelet count is back to normal and i do not have fever as well. Current count is 293. i have started getting bright red rashes on my arms, legs, neck and they itch very badly. Can I take some anti-alergic tablet like Avil or Allegra?

Hello,

Yes, you may take an antihistamine e.g. cetirizine or loratadine or Allegra tablet. In addition, I suggest you use a soothing lotion e.g. calamine lotion to calm down the rashes.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Kakkar S., Dermatologist
