I developed rash on wrists and inside legs while taking an antibiotic a couple yrs ago. I called the Dr and they said don't worry continue taking. So I went to the pharmacist and she said it was an allergic reaction and stop the med and be sure to inform future drs of this allergy. One of the first serious allergic reactions of metho is a rash. Warnings say to contact Dr immediately for treatment and stop taking. Good luck.


Hi Ian, I think it's a good idea to get it might be the drugs or it may be something much more simple. I would however take photos as Sod's law when you tell the docs about the rash it will be nowhere to be seen! I hope you get to the bottom of it soon xxxx
