I am beginning to wonder if the growing rash on my lower leg is a Cellulitis or Oedema type Rash.
As I have posted on this on the Amlodine forum but thought I would trry on this one,
I was taking Amlodine 5mg (High blood pressure Medication ) and my ankles began to swell and a very itchy red rash began to appear.
I was put on different medication but the rash it never went away and is covering the area from my ankle to my knee, it's very red, sore and itchy and looks quiet angry, but have no pain in the lower leg, both lower legs were swollen, the right one is back to normal but the left leg is still swollen,
My GP prescribed antibiotics but they didn’t clear the rash, I have just been prescribed an ointment (Clobetasone Butyrate 0.5% ) to try and clear the rash up.
I am not sure my GP knows exactly what type of rash I have, but I have carried out a bit of research and it looks as though it may Cellulitis or some other skin condition to do with the side effects of this drug
I know that lots of posters have mentioned rashes I just wonder how the got rid of it or still dealing with it ,and what medication was prescribed for them
