I have rash on temple area of face from Allopurinol.. Stopped taking the drug for 2 days now. The rash seems to have gotten a little better, but there is some swelling on that area and near eye. I was told by my doctor, who is a specialist to stop the medication if rash occurred. Is the swelling a normal side effect?
HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern the given history suggested the hypersensitivity reaction due to the drug called "Allopurinol" in very rare case this drug induces the reaction but the eruption of rash goes away as soon as you stop taking the drug and nothing to worry...

Is there a treatment for the rash associated with low potassium? It looks like she has been scalded with hot water.

My daughter is 7. She developed a rash on her arms, face and chest. Two doctors appoitments later they gave her prednisone. Today was her last dose. I checked on her while sleeping and notcied the rash is back. It comes and goes. What do I do. What could it be.
Hi,

Diagnoisis of rash involves thorough clinical examination, would sugest you to send us clinical photograph for further assesment.
If the rash is not associated with other symptoms then there should be no cause for concern.

Take care

I have a rash to the left of my left breast , on the right side of my stomach and lower back area and in head. It is very itchy. it started with the head, then beside left breast and now right and lower back area. What could this be? I am takeing kolopin and I am weening myself off of this medication , Could this cause this type of rash? also, i usually use ivory soap, we were out for a couple of days and I used safegaurd. Could this be it? Although the head I spoke to my dr and he gave me medicine a while back. said it was psoriosis.

The distribution of your rash does not suggest a definite diagnosis
Psoriasis is diagnosed by seeing and/or at times scraping and blood tests. Your doctor is the best person to...

My 5 yr old son has a rash/hive on his inner thigh that I believe to be ringworm. We went to the doctor today, before I knew about the rash, and the PA (there is no MD) said his wbc's were elevated and his ear canals were agitated and red. We were scripted a braod specrum antibiotic and sent on out way. I know that this won't help a fungal infection and I am hesitant to give it to my child and wrecking his flora and ph..Any advice will help. i have covered the rash with tea tree oil, neat.
rashes over inner thigh could be fungal or due to friction on inner thighs.can use moisturizers,anti histamines and and can give anti fungals after seeing the rashes.
