I have a rash on forearms & thighs. Skin colored, slightly pink. Not itchy. Small bumps all over, not patchy. Possibly allergic reaction to z-pack?

Many possibilities: This could be a reaction to a z-pac, a new food, or some other exposure. I would hold stop the med for now and contact your pcp in the am. S/he may want to change the med or have you evaluated. This med is going to be in your system for a while. So more rash may continue to come up for some time. ...Read more

My 2 year old and I have mystery rash (me hands, her arm/leg) now trying prescribed zovirax (acyclovir) to see if helps. Will this help on non coldsore rashes?

My 2 year old and I have mystery rash (me hands, her arm/leg) now trying prescribed zovirax (acyclovir) to see if helps. Will this help on non coldsore rashes?

To confirm the cause, a rash needs to be examined, but based on location and occurring at the same time, it is more likely to be a contact allergic dermatitis. This responds better to oral or topical steroids, such as hydrocortisone cream. ...Read more
