Folic acid: I have never truley seen a reaction to folic acid although a high dose for general nutritional purposes. Would suggest stopping for few days. To see if rash improves. If no improvement time to consult physician for other causes and examination of rash. If it does improve may want to consider a lower dosage or alternative formulation.
