So on Tuesday I got a rash on my wrist and legs (not itchy) I took an allergy tablet and hoped the rash would go away. The next morning (Wednesday) I woke up and the rash has spread down my arms and the rash on my legs got worse, became bigger and more appeared. I saw the doctor Wednesday and he said it was Folliculitis, by mid day the rash had spread onto my palm so I was 100% sure the doctor had incorrectly diagnosed it.
Thursday morning I woke up and the rash had gotten worst. I went to the doctors again and the other doctor said he thinks it’s a viral infection, by this point I began getting cold symptoms. He told me to just leave it and it should go down in a few days.
Today I have worken up and the rash has completely spread all up my stomach and chest and is now itchy. My legs are pretty much all covered now and the cold symptoms are bad, I have a tingly feeling all over my body, constantly cold, loss of appetite, sinus congestion, stuffy headache and generally feel run down.
I phoned the doctors again today as advised by mums friend who is a nurse (as the rash has spread and is now itchy with new symptoms) I was told I would get a phone call from my doctor (this was at 1.30 today) still no call yet and I’m feeling awful. I’m really worried that this rash is going to spread further onto my face.
Being 4 days into this already it’s showing no signs of slowing down and I don’t feel doctors have investigated it properly. (Doctors only took a 5 second look and didn’t want to view my legs; which is where it’s worst) So does anyone have any idea what it is?
Rash is slightly raised and red, some are like pin pricks and others have now grown to a size of a marker pen (some even bigger than that due to joining with others)
