I'm currently on the Accutane, and one day I woke up with rashes on my face and both arms. Did Accutane cause rashes? If yes, how do I get rid of it?

It is a side effect: Your rash can be caused by acutane. It is important that you avoid irritants such as sun during this time and stay moisturized. You should also show your rash to your current prescribing doctor.

I've had an allergic reaction (skin rash) to a dose increase of sertraline. The rash is on my face, neck, chest, back and arms. I took a full 25 mg dose 1x and woke up with a slight rash on my face. Took a 2nd 25 mg dose and the rash is now everywhere

See MD: Contact your prescribing doctor without delay for advice. Rash from sertraline has been reported, but is not common. Doctor needs to see your rash and advise. If you can't reach your doctor, go to urgent care or ED for proper diagnosis and guidance. Hope you feel better soon.

I had fell asleep for a couple of hours until I felt my face burning & itching I woke up to this red rash over my face and a pimple. What can it be?

Insect bite: The pustule may be the result of an insect bite or sting, with the burning and itching red rash being a local reaction. This type of rash may improve with Benedryl, but persistence or worsening could indicate a skin infection (would require prompt treatment by a physician).

Need to see: A healthcare provider to rule out airway obstruction (angioedema) and/or anaphylactic reaction. You may also have a severe bacterial sinus infection or conjunctivitis. These diagnoses all require antibiotic treatment and/or important medications that you will not find over the counter. Please do not wait to see a healthcare provider ASAP. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) HC: There are many causes of itching. In most cases, the cause is an allergy. If one experiences any difficulty breathing they must go to an emergency room or urgent care center immediately. The simplest treatment would be to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (25-50mg) and apply 1% Hydrocortisone ointment 4 times per day. Do not apply anything else to the face (make-up, wrinkle creams, etc) until the rash resolves.

Irritant/allergic?: If the rash did not itch, it is likely an irritant reactions. It it did itch, then an allergic contact allergy may be the cause.

Monitor for now: It's a bit early to worry about this type of rash. If something is coming on it will show up over the next day or so with more symptoms that either signal a problem or something minor. For now just monitor the situation.

I been taking Diflucan (fluconazole) this morning I woke up with redness on my face burning red rash on my neck and itches. Could it be allgeric reaction?

Yes: Nearly any drug can cause an allergic response and you need to avoid Diflucan (fluconazole) until proven otherwise. Notify your doctor to see if you need medical attention if the problem is bothersome or worsens. In the meanwhile try topical hydrocortisone cream.

Stop using diapers!: Diaper rash is not caused by urine or by stool, it is caused by diapers. Changing frequently and changing brands can help. In severe cases, put the baby on absorbent sheets and don't use a diaper at all until the rash is gone. It is messy, but it works. If the rash is already severe, you will need help from your babies doctor.

I woke up with an itchy rash all over my body except my face and genitals. It started as tiny red bumps, now some are a little bigger, still red.?

I woke up with an itchy rash all over my body except my face and genitals. It started as tiny red bumps, now some are a little bigger, still red.?

More details: This can be a drug reaction, a viral infection, or the onset of a new skin condition. Given the scanty history and description, I would suggest that you try taking antihistamine to see if it helps. If the itching is intolerable or the rash is getting worse, need to see your doctor.

Child woke up with very puffy/swollen eyes slight fever last night and cough, very light rash all over face and torso no other symptoms?

Watchful wait: Sometimes children will wake up in the morning with puffy eyes from a back up of fluid from their nose/sinus area. It sort of pools in that area (if you will). Important considerations would be 1. does it go away over the course of the day? 2. does it worsen over the course of the day? 3. is she she dehydrated? 4. is she urinating as much as she usually does? If not better in 2 days, go see doctor

Need to be seen: Your symptoms may be related to an infection or possibly an autoimmune process. There are several viral infections that can give you the symptoms you describe and lab work can confirm if this it the case. For the majority the only intervention is time and controlling symptoms such as fever and pain. You want to limit your exposure to others until you are seen by a medical provider.

Eyelid irritation: It sounds like you have some sort of eyelid inflammation that pre-existed the crying episode but was irritated by the salty tears. It may be blepharitis or eczema. See your local eye doctor if it persists.
