    Hi Cherl. It may be a reaction to the venison sausages.

    I would see if your GP can fit you in today or if not ask can you have a telephone consultation.

    You may need an antihistamine drug, but GP is definitely the way to go especially with all your other problems.

    Take care. Gentle hugs

    Hi is the rash itchy or just a rash, have you had your Bllods checked recently do you have any auto immune problems or a family history of any. If not it's probably due to the hot weather

    Hi Cherl.  Could well be an allergic reaction, even if not the venison in the sausages could be one of the flavourings or additives.  It's been hot and humid recently (if you're in the  UK) so it might even be a heat rash of some kind.  Best thing is to take some like a piriton tablet and go see the doctor to get it checked out.

    Hi Cherl

    I had a similar rash. Ended up at the dermatology department of the local hospital. Is your rash photosensitive. Mine is - can't go out in sunlight or be under harsh strip lighting indoors (including dentist light when in the chair) without it burning and itching.   Been advised to wear factor 50+ and was told recently it was part of some of the strange weird and wonderful things fibro throws at us. Otherwise had it not been for the fingers and hands being affected would have got the rosecea diagnosis confirmed. Hope yours is just an allergic reaction - time will tell as always.  Take care.
