Abdominal Rash
Sep 6, 2003

I developed a rash on my abdomen. Rash began apx 5 months ago. Some itching, not that bad. Rash looks like small round scales. My phyisian prescribed allegra to lessen the itching which really is not that bad. I currently take a lot of herbal and vitamin supplements along with combivir viracept and 40mg of pravachol. Could the rash be drug induced?

Response from Dr. Henry

It could be be it would be somewhat unusual to be localized to just that region if due to one of the drugs you are taking. KH

Neuropathy in my feet
medicines good or bad
