Need more informatio: There are a few possibilities but I need more information to answer your question. Do you have any health probs provide a picture of the rash On any medications or health products Is there a family history of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, skin diseases or autoimmune diseases. The rash may be a vasculitis or erythema nodosum but without some more history, cannot diagnose.
