I just got a rash all over my body! pregnant. Go to ob or derm?

Rash in pregnancy: I would always suggest your OB know what is going on. However, a dermatologist will be more likely able to give you a clear diagnosis. There are many rashes one can get during pregnancy, some have really nothing to do with being pregnant. Some are brought on by pregnancy. I hope this helps you for a start. ...Read more

Blood test needed: The rash sounds like the secondary stage of syphilis. New HIV also might be possible. I suspect some information is missing. Are you sure your husband is giving you the full story? Syphilis or HIV can't be diagnosed by exam alone; a blood test is needed to diagnose and to know the best treatment. You will need to be tested and treated (assuming you and your husband are sexually active together). ...Read more

11m son took azithromycin went wqt side and now rash all over that disappear and reappears in random spots getting worse as far as pain? Doc app tues.

11m son took azithromycin went wqt side and now rash all over that disappear and reappears in random spots getting worse as far as pain? Doc app tues.

Hard to say: Why did your son take azithromycin? Was it unintentional? How much did your son take? What does "wqt side" mean? When did he take it? If it were 250 mg and more than 24 hrs ago then i would say that there is minimal risk at this point. Your son may have an allergy to this medicine and until further notice should not receive this medicine in the future. ...Read more

I have a rash all over my left arm and one part is pimply looking with white stuff. Had a cheap splint from an Asian doctor. Is hydrocortisone good4it?

I have a rash all over my left arm and one part is pimply looking with white stuff. Had a cheap splint from an Asian doctor. Is hydrocortisone good4it?

Maybe not: Sounds like you have contact dermatitis. That's an allergic reaction, perhaps to the material in the splint. Another possibility is impetigo. That's an infection. Since no one over here at healthtap can see your rash you would be wise to have a health care professional take a look at it before using Hydrocortisone or anything else on it. ...Read more
