I previously was on coversyl +. Caused a cough. Dr prescribed olmetec+. I have recently had itchy skin irritation. Could olmetec cause this?

Yes

Skin_irritation
Without details there's no way to be sure what caused your rash but we can develop allergic reactions to any drug, food, or other substances. Olmetec distributes throughout your body so the reaction would likewise usually be all over, not confined to one area. Also it usually would not go away until you stopped the drug and could develop into something more serious. Still itch? stop & see the doc.
