Can melanoma cause rash that looks like allergy? And can melanoma cause iron and vitamin d deficiency?

Not Likely: Melanoma would rarely ever cause an allergy type rash unless it was very severe and at a late stage. It is usually found as an abnormal pigmented lesion on the body, in the mouth, or on the retina of the eye. You should get a skin exam to have the rash looked at. There are many other less scary causes for an allergy rash. Melanoma would rarely cause vitamin deficiencies, unless late stage.
