See dermatologist: If this happens when you are in the countryside , you are likely allergic to something outdoors or even to the sun. I would suggest that you consult a dermatologist to find out the cause. Certainly poison oak/poison ivy is a factor to be considered especially since its resin on contaminated articles may remain potent for months. ...Read more

Virus: The rash could be due to the reason you took the antibiotic. If you had a virus the rash cold be due to the infection itself and not the medicine you took for the underlying disease. A drug induced rash should begin to clear after 4 days but if it were severe to begin with then 4 days may not be enough. It also depends on if you were taking the med in question while the rash was ongoing. ...Read more

Miconazole cream though is the antifungal, it's OTC, needs at least 2 weeks of application, but you ultimately want to see your doctor, it might not be ring worm to start with, also if you have a pet at home, it needs to be taken care of, wish you all wellness. ...Read more
