I have a rash or something on my body and

Patient : I have a rash or something on my body and I do not know what its from. I'm very scared and what should I do.
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. A rash usually occurs when there is an allergen that causes release of the cytokines tha t cause inflammation of the cells. This is what causes the rash or redness and the itching. You can try taking tablet Levocet once a day to help you recover from the rash. If the rash does not go away in 3 days, then see a Doctor. Hope this helps you.
