Hi, I've got a rash on my face, its very textured and my skin feels very lumpy and itchy. My neck has also become very irritated as well. I am not sure what to do, as i am meant to be going to work today.
Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?
Customer: only the last 2 days, but in the last week I've lost my appetite for food, and my tummy has been really bloated with the occasional sharp pain
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, but i have been given medication for IBS

Please use adequate layer of sunscreen if you work outdoors, or else use calamine lotion liberally for irritation. If there are any yellow-tipped swellings, there may be boils so use oral antibiotic for same along with antibiotic ointment. Use a protective cap if outdoors. Ginger with honey/sugar may help with digestion and appetite.
