Hi Misty,this is from the drugs.com mobic (meloxicam) website:

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction while taking meloxicam (the active ingredient contained in Mobic) hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using meloxicam and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:

coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;

Just from personal experience with plenty of drug allergies, that sure sounds like the beginning of an allergic rash, especially if it only started once you started taking the Mobic. Stop taking it immediately and see your doctor ASAP. It might also be useful to take a photo of the rash and take that to your appointment with you, just in case the rash totally goes away after you stop taking the medication before you get a chance to see your doctor. This will allow your doctor to see what the rash looked like.
