For 2-3 weeks now I have had this persistent, itchy, red blotchy rash all over my entire body. I have seen my doctor and have had blood tests ( came back fine) was prescribed flucoxacillin and a course of prednisolone (40mg x 7days). Didn't help at all, I was switched to clindamycin with another 7 days of prednisolone - still no relief. usually the day I get prescribed prednisolone it works wonders as I am a life long total allergy sufferer and asthmatic. Could it be a viral infection? What should I ask my doctor ? Thanks
I'm going through the same thing at the moment, do you suffer with excema? My eyes, lips & whole face swelled up every once in a blue moon but from Christmas it has been crazy! This morning my face was swollen so bad i had to go to A&E, i was given prednisolone 40mg to have once a day for 3 days! I really hope it works as this is taken over my life now...
A dermatologist is a good idea but finding one who will actually help you the right way is another story - i've booked with a place i found online and im going to see the on the 21st of this month.
I think go back to your Doctors & basically stalk them until they help you or until you find a dermatologist.
