J. C. Fore (2 years ago):
I've been on Lantus approximately 8 years and last summer developed a rash of unknown origin. I was told it was Hives but because I'm on several different medications, had no idea what the rash was coming from. The rash got better over the winter but came back this spring. I accidentally went without Lantus for 2 days and the rash on my stomach began to clear up suddenly. I have been on prescription ointment and antihistimine since last summer but nothing seemed to be working. Only when I accidentally went without Lantus for 2 days did it begin to clear up. I went right back on the Lantus and now there is a rash on my butt. Could this be causing the allergic reaction? What do I do now for controlling my sugar?

From this study (6 days ago):
I have been taking ibuprofen 800 mg every 4-6 hours for pain as prescribed by my dentist after extensive dental work for almost a week. I now have a painless rash on my face and getting petechiae on my arms and hands. Could this be from the ibuprofen and should i stop taking it and find another pain reliever. I am type 2 diabetic and have non aloholic fatty liver disease.
From this study (7 days ago):
Itching burning on mainly my feet and lower legs raised boil looking hives and extream sensitivity in my feet
