Dr, I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?
Probably not: But you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more
I have small, painful rashes on my back and legs. My eyes are red and I have swelling everywhere. What is happening?
painful rash on back and legs can be due to many causes. One patient developed such a rash after staying in a hotel; my diagnosis was bed-bug-allergy, as the rash was limited to the back of trunk, and back of legs, and the protected areas such as those covered by intimate clothing was not affected. Since your eyes are red and swelling everywhere other causes of need consideration. ...Read more

You: You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit. ...Read more

Been on clonazepam 1mg for 18 months. 5 months ago developed rash in arms and legs, redness, eruption, dryness in legs. Should I quit the drug?
See your doctor: If you have already continued it for 5 months after your rash developed, I would not think that it is likely related, since it would probably have gotten MUCH worse. A health professional needs to take a look at your rash, get a full medical history and determine the cause. Talk to whoever is prescribing the clonazepam. You may need to see a dermatologist for the right answer. ...Read more

Reasonable to. ..: To suspect skin reaction (allergy) after taking a drug like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is reasonable but not confirmative. Being not anaphylactic in nature, future repetitive experience may tell. At present, just leave it alone if bearable or just apply steroid-containing skin cream lightly 1-2 times daily and watch for 3-5 days; if not resolving as wished or worsening, seek evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more
What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more
