Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
After taking these meds, most for ten years, I began to have a rash. Started around my ankle and has spread all over my body, except my face and neck...three biopsies have noted that I do have an allergy but no other information. Started after I had my knee replaced. Has anyone had rashes from any of these meds?
From this study (4 months ago):
Type of skin rash is unknown but it has continued for many months with occasional but mild itching. Rash is isolated to areas of upper and lower back and first appeared about ten months ago. Rash is extremely persistent but does not appear to "spread". This continuing, long-term, stable condition suggests a reaction to a prescription drug. But the large number of drugs I take make it difficult to sort this out.
