First I am not allergic to laytex and second this rash was not where the bandaide was. two weeks ago I had a blood draw for test for upper right quadrant pain. The nurse that did it does not need to be allowed to stick needles in people. I have never had any problems before. I got the normal bruising only it was not on the puncture site or on the vein. I think she punctured the vein inside and it bled a little out. Two days ago the bruise went from red, black to white then it got a raised pink VERY itchy rash. I went back to the dr today and he does not have a clue what it is. About 2 months ago I developed this horrible rash on my stomach over my liver area and went to the ER in pain. The dr said it was shingles. In the next 2 months I got the same rash in the same place 4 times. When I told my dr about this he said it is not shingles and gave me a cream to put on it. It starts usually late at night feels like someone put an iron to me, I put ice on it and by the next morning it is already going away. There will be a few blisters, but they go away very quickly. I do not know if these 2 rashes have anything to do with one another. I hate going back to dr's that just want to give you a cream and pain meds just to have the symptoms to return again and again. This is so frustrating. Why does Austin, Texas seem not to have any good doctors. I have had a complete abdominal ultrasound and it looks good and my liver test came back normal. The only thing I have found on the next is some type of autoimmune disorder. Any insite, recommendations or anything would be so very grateful.
