Can atarax cause skin rash on lower left abdomen, above waist line and about 3/4 of the way from belly button to left side? Should I be concerned?

Can atarax cause skin rash on lower left abdomen, above waist line and about 3/4 of the way from belly button to left side? Should I be concerned?

Try topical hydrocortisone x a few days If problem persists, see dermatologist ...Read more
