Doctor, i'm still waiting for an answer
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 21 days ago.

Thank you. How long have you had this rash please?

Is it itchy or painful?

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
I have it from 3-4 days, i used some kind of medicine anti-allegic but for the moment it is not helping
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 21 days ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** itchy or painful?

And what medication have you tried?

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
I have tried alergosan, which is an anti-allergic medicine, it is itchy but not that much
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 21 days ago.

Okay thanks, ***** ***** does appear as an allergy response. And given that it is itchy I would suggest this is the case.

So your options over the counter would be to try Cetirizine tablet which is a daily anti histamine, and also a topical steroid, Hydrocortisone. Both of these you can get from a pharmacy without a prescription.

Hopefully this will keep you going until you are able to have this reviewed by your doctor.

In the morning i vomited a little bit, but i can be from the worried, so you don't think it is something very serious? I was hesitating if it is a chickepox
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 20 days ago.

Sorry for the delay in my response. No I do not think this is something serious, it looks like a local reaction.

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Don't worry, thank you for your response. Do you think it seems like an eczema? And in your opinion what do you think it caused this eczema, what is the reason
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 20 days ago.

It could be, if so, it would be caused by some damage/dryness to the skin, and inflammation can appear from this.

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Hope it would get better with this cortocosteroide cream in a few daya
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 20 days ago.

I do hope so, best of luck.
