Response from Dr. Boyle

There are many skin conditions that can cause the symptoms you are describing including herpes simplex or zoster, a nonspecific dermatitis, pressure blisters from poorly fitting shoes, local allergic reactions, and others. Your doctor should evaluate this. I doubt that it is related to your medications. BB
