  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • The only new medication I started using was the Cyclobenzaprine prescribed by my doctor after I told her about my back pain on June 29 I noticed one red patch on my stomach area that looked like ringworm or something then a few days later I got more of them on my stomach, side and chest area it started to itch I called my doctors office and my regular doc was out of town I saw another doc in July who diagnosed the patches as eczema and prescribed some steroid cream,It puzzled me because I have never in my life deal with skin problems like eczema..The cream prescribes it seems to heal the sores n relieve some itching but now I am getting hives or some really itchy red bumps on the back of my legs and thighs I thought it was coming from a chair I always sit in so I check the chair I saw no bugs, fleas, mosquitos or anything but I have this intense itching at night and wake up with the rash spreading from one leg to the other I am starting to think its a side effect of the Cyclobenzaprine that was prescribed to me for my back pain?
