    I think you need to talk to your GP Steve.  What is the rash?  Have you seen a Dermatologist, is it a fungal condition at all?

      Yes it was a nail infection, didn't get a rash or itching until 4 weeks into the course, it's nothing like it was when I was on the tablets but still annoying and its dried my skin out terribly 😟

      Some years ago, I had a rash and a GP thought it was ringworm, so prescribed Terbinafine, which triggered something completely different.  [And I didn't have ringworm anyway]

      Perhaps the problem is the Terbinafine and not the nail infection, in which case, you would need to go back to the doctor

      Have you tried something like Nivea for your dry skin?
