I have been on sulfamerh/trimethoprim for 17 days. Have been off for 3 days now I have a wierd rash on my arms and legs can this be a penn. Reaction?

Maybe Med Reaction: Trimethorprim/ sulfamethoxazole is a sulfa based antiobiitic. Not a penicillin derivative. That said it is still a common source of allergy. Talk to your doc. It may very well be the drug. If your having any breathing difficulty go directly to your nearest er. Read more

I have viral fever- last 3 days. Now fever etc is less but I have red rash on my arms & legs. Skin very dry with intense itching. Taking 4-5 ltrs fluids?

4-5 LITERS???: You do not need to drown yourself. "Viral fever" is so vague as to be a nearly useless diagnosis. Rash on arms and legs may---- or may not---- be viral. How do you know your fever is viral? You should at least apply a lubricating cream, and probably a cortisone cream. There is no point to excessive water consumption. Read more

Viral? Allergic?: Blotchy appearing reddish rashes can occur when the blood flow in the tiny vessels at the skin's surface change, such as in an allergic rash, a viral rash, or in reaction to changes in skin temperature. Viral infections that cause cold symptoms and other symptoms can sometimes cause such skin patterns (fifth disease, caused by a virus, can cause reddish patterns). A doctor can evaluate if needed.

"i have a purplish reddish rash on my arms and legs and a bump filled with pus on my knee. What could this be? " "i have a purplish reddish rash on my arms and legs and a bump filled with pus on my knee. What could this be? "

This: This is quite challenging without a clinical examination. I would recommend you see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options. Could be many conditions, including folliculitis, eczema (with secondary infection), psoriasis, lichen planus, a drug rash, or other possibilities. Read more about rashes and other possibilities at the link below. I hope that helps a little. Read more

Urgent visit to MD: 32 year old woman with a complaint of sore throat, fatigue, and a generalized rash on the extremities. You need to visit a physician immediately for a physical exam. If you had a fever and sore throat that has been persistent, your rash could be sequelae from untreated strep infection. There are several other differential diagnoses. If you have fever and severe fatigue I would suggest an ER visit Read more

Dry skin?: Try applying a moderately thick moisturizer within 3 mins after bathing and see it this helps. It may take a few days however before you can see the effect. If this failed, then consider checking with your doctor. Since dry skin tends to be a familial trait, I think that's the best guess but a direct observation will give a more definite answer.
