Hi, I woke up with an itchy red rash on back of knee. Looks inflamed w/ brown dots & little scabs on the follicles. Used cortisone 3 days, not better?

I am experiencing rash on back, under breast and under armpit along bra line, worst under the hook of my bra. They are like big VERY ITCHY red bumps?

Taking z-pac for cold/cough and w/in 3 hrs developed pink eye. Used ofloxicin from prev condition and 12 hrs later hives red rash on back gone in 2 hr?

Taking z-pac for cold/cough and w/in 3 hrs developed pink eye. Used ofloxicin from prev condition and 12 hrs later hives red rash on back gone in 2 hr?

Virus vs reaction?: Most colds and coughs don't need antibiotics. You may well have a virus, and the Zpak will not speed your recovery if so. Unless the prescriber told you bacteria are likely present due to high fever or white count, or exam. Eye drops do not remain sterile after opened, and should be discarded. This is why! Check back with your doctor if symptoms get worse or do not get better. ...Read more
