Forehead rash that looks like heat rash, took ibuprofen, rash became numb and tight, caused a horrible head ache where the rash is. Sun makes it worse?

Diagnosed w/ irritant contact dermatitis  5 days ago. Given Floucinonide. Rash still spreading and very painful. Why? Can I take advil (ibuprofen) for pain?

See dermatologist: Whenever a rash is spreading and becoming very painful (unless deeply scratched), it is an alarming sign and you need to see a dermatologist ASAP. If the rash is confined to only one vertical half of the body, then I would suspect shingles. If it is widespread, it needs be examined and treated ASAP. ...Read more

I have a flesh colored rash across my forehead, when I take ibuprofen it hurts, the skin feels tight and it tingles so much. No pus. What could it be?

Rash: The feeling of tightness and tingling sounds like a possible contact dermatitis, however usually redness would develop. Tingling sometimes can be caused by herpes virus (herpes simplex or herpes zoster). A good first treatment would be to avoid applying makeup or other chemicals, and apply hydrocortisone 1% over the counter cream. See your doctor soon. ...Read more

I  have numbness around lips and feet. Im unsure as to what it is. I broke out with a rash around my neck area earlier after taking levofloxcin and ibuprofen. I then took benedryl to help with rash and now im experiencein numbness.. What do i need to do?

See doctor: First we need to know why you are being treated with levofloxicin? Although the rash may be from the drug, the numbness is not. I recommend that you consult your doctor ASAP to be sure that you are not having a neurologic issue especially if the "infection" being treated is from a virus. Do stop both drugs until seen. ...Read more
