Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I've had a rash on my face for about 2 months now that is concentrated mostly from the left side of my mouth almost down to the chin. I've used tea tree oil with some benefit, but it still only will dry up a little and never completely goes away. It is fairly red most of the time and sometimes will have bumps that look like pimples. It doesn't hurt or itch, but being 52 years old, it's pretty embarrassing. I've made a dermatologist appt., but have had to wait 6 weeks to get in. My new primary care doctor didn't have a clue. Could the dextroamphetamine be causing this rash?
From this study (5 months ago):
This is one month postpartum. I have a list of symptoms that make it hard to deal with regular life. I had sore fingers and wrists and a rash on the palms of my hands and inside of forearms. Then the rash spread to the soles of my feet. Joint stiffness and pain in my knees, elbows, wrists and ankles. I took a topical cream for the rash on my arms and then it spread to legs, thighs, torso, neck . . . Now I have a sore throat, swollen glands. I tried ibuprofen and tylenol. to control pain, not bad, but stopped taking them because of the rashes.
From this study (12 months ago):
rash on ear, now spreading to neck
