Been taking apo-sulfatrim for four days, developed a rash on neck and weird red spots on roof of mouth, tingling all over body. What should I do?

Get second opinion: If the first dermatologist wasn't able to help you then get another opinion. When in doubt certain tests can be performed including a biopsy. Perhaps you are allergic to something like a fragrance or jewelry. Allergy testing can be done. Perhaps it is fungal considering it did not get better with a cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream. Second opinion is often helpful. Good luck. ...Read more

Rash on neck after starting azithromycin. I'm on day 3 of 5.

Contact your doctor and follow her or his advice. ...Read more

I recommend an evaluation by your primary care doctor or dermatologist. ...Read more
