CBC normal. Im currently taking acyclovir. My allergologist prescribed me with antihistamines and multivitamin. It wont go away. what is this? what can i do with this?
Dear Patient: I would advice you to see your family physician regarding this rash since it is spreading. The cause of the rash can range from a drug/ food allergy to more serious systemic conditions. You may need a physical examination as well as more testing to determine the exact cause of the rash.
