Sorry if tmi but I have an itchy rash which looks like red spots. It started as a few spots on my leg and has spread to both legs, arms, and few spots on back and front torso.
This started on Saturday.
On Sunday I noticed dd getting some spots too but she said they are not itchy.
So we both went to the local gp.
He said he doesn't think it's chicken pox, measles or rubella and it's likely to be an allergic reaction to something in the environment plus the humid weather. He told us to take Claratyne and come back and come back if we notice changes in the rash. I also asked if it would be ok for me to go to work today and for dd to go to school.
Dr said yes should be fine bc doesn't look like anything infectious.
Also ds and dh don't haven't got any spots. Dd immunizations are up to date and i have had my mmr shots. Also had chicken pox as a child.
so now it's the third day and my spots are still super itchy. I dont have any other symptoms. The Claratyne doesn't seem to be doing anything.
So I am not sure if I should go to work tomorrow and give the rash time to resolve itself or stay home and see another dr for a second opinion tomorrow?
I have an important meeting and a training session that I prefer not to miss if I don't need to.
