The other thing about the nurse saying it is too early is that it does not matter. If you are having a problem with a rash, it needs to be treated. If the rash is a Riba rash oor an Incivek rash, it does not matter. It needs to be treated regardless of which one it is. It is just that the Incivek rash has the potential to cause a major systemic reaction that can be very, very serious.
To me the rashes look similar or the same except that with a severe Incivek rash you can get blistering, vesicles, and more. The Incivek rash can be a major game changer if you get a severe rash. In fact, there have been fatalities (not many, but a couple). People can get a systemic reaction with Incivek and develop DRESS Syndrome or SJS Syndrome. Any vesicles or ulcerations are a danger sign and need immediate treatment. Get your doctor to treat that rash ASAP. If your doc won't do it, then go to a dermatologist on an very urgent basis.
BTW, I had every type of red bump and red flat spots you can imagine. Hives, wheals, papules, macules, pinpoint bumps, small ones, large ones, red ones purple ones, you name it and I had it. The ones on my legs were splotchier looking too, flatter, some of them anyway, and dark red/purple.
