Something else: Acne is not common on the neck and generally does not come on suddenly. If it itches, it may be a contact dermatitis, such as poison ivy, but if it is painful, then consider an infectious cause like folliculitis. I recommend an evaluation by your primary care doctor or dermatologist. ...Read more

I've had sore in both nostrils off and on for the last month and a half, rash on neck, face and chest and fluid in the ears. Any idea what this is?

Allergy: The variety of symptoms that you are describing sounds like a viral infection. The middle ear fluid should cause a hearing loss. Sores in the nose for a month and a half have no relation to middle ear fluid. A rash on the neck, face, and chest along with the middle ear fluid sounds like a viral infection or most likely an allergic problem. See you primary care doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Drug allergy: Levothyroxine is the generic name of a type of thyroid hormone, which several different companies make. It is possible that you are allergic to one of the nonactive ingredients (filler/coloring) in one maker's pill, but not another, especially if you took this medicine in past without difficulty.
