Patient

Q: 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

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

A rash usually occurs when there is an allergen that causes release of the cytokines that 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.
