If it is bad enough, death will soon follow. I'd call your doc and let him/her know. You may have allergy to sulfa drugs. ...Read more

Contact your doctor and follow her or his advice. ...Read more

Something else: Acne is not common on the neck and generally does not come on suddenly.

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. Ask your pharmacy if generic maker was changed recently. Rarely, u could be allergic to levothyroxine ...Read more

I have an itchy welt like rash on neck, eyes, elbows, pelvis and legs. Now developing bruise like soreness at the base of both palms.?

This is unusual: Leah, you really need to see a clinician both to get relief from the symptoms and find the cause.

Good luck! ...Read more
