HELP!! MY rash is WORSE!!
Do rashes often times get worse before they get better? Mine is from an allergic reaction to Bactrim. I am allergic to sulfa.

What can I do to help my rash go away?

Thanks.....

Hi,

This could be allergic reactions to unknown substances, skin hypersensitivity, eczema, dermatitis .

You should not scratch or pick at the lesions as this would cause secondary bacterial infection.

Do you notice the lesions trigerred in response to a specific stimulus? Try to avoid substances that you have have shown allergic reactions to.

Are you allergic to any other specific substances? Have you had allergic reactions in the past?

Apply calamine lotion at the site and take some oral antihistamine medications for your symptoms.  

If the symptoms are still persistent, consult a dermatologist and get a proper clinical evaluation done.  

Let us know if you have any doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing.

Good luck.
