Need to be seen: Nobody can diagnose a rash at a distance, but since you are taking medication, my first and foremost concern is that the new rash / itching are a drug reaction, since this is the most dangerous treatable illness. Your prescribing physician should be able to tell. Yes, a person can have herpes simples, a candida yeast infection, and pityrosporum folliculitis but not giving the same rash. Peace. ...Read more

I have bumps on my arms and back, they itch and swell. Is it an allergy or bug bite and how do I treat this?

Not all bumps equal: It depends on how they look are they raised, flat and red? Or are they like tiny blisters on a red base? The former suggest allergy, the latter bug bites, but the distinction is not absolute. You can try an anti-itch suspension such as sarna with pramoxime topically and take an otc anti-histamine such as Cetirizine 10mg or fexofenadine 180mg. If no better with a reasonable time, see a physician. ...Read more
