I have had the rash for about a week and taken antihistamines. I saw a pharmacist today who said she had never seen something like this before so I was sent to a minor injuries unit who told me to come back in two days if it had not gone. It leaks straw colored liquid and is very itchy and swollen with raised bumps almost like blisters. I do not really have fever symptoms. I am just very tired.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have noted your concern and I have viewed the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is infected eczematous dermatitis (IED). I suggest you take an oral antibiotic like either Amoxycillin 500 mg or Cephalexin 500 mg, thrice daily for a week. In addition, I suggest you take an oral antihistamine like tablet Cetirizine 10 mg once a day for a few days. I also suggest you apply a potent topical steroid like either Mometasone furoate 0.1 % cream or Clobetasol propionate 0.05 % cream, twice daily for a few days.
