My boyfriend has a spreading rash with open blisters that have not been responding to the antibiotics. They are covering most of his arms, chest, back and some of his legs. No fever, or aches but the areas itch and burns if he itches.
The first doctor prescribed Cleocin 300mg 4x daily for Folliculitis, but the rash spread and I took him in again when I noticed it spreading more and onto his face.
The next doctor prescribed him Keflex 500mg 4x daily + Bactrim DS 800-160mg 2x daily for Cellulitis.
Some of the spreading from the first antibiotics has receded but it is still spreading blisters and he now has them on his genital area.
We live in a remote area with not a lot of medical office's and the doctors he has seen seem to be in such a rush that they are barely in the room 2 minutes before leaving to write a prescription without any tests or any more examination than him lifting up his shirt to show how bad it is.
I have pictures but I'm not sure the best way to show them here.
If anyone could give us some advice it would greatly be appreciated! We live a couple of hours from any other doctors or specialist.
He has had the rash for about a month now and it started on his arms and legs.
Thank you in advance
