This morning i have developed a raised red bumpy rash

This answer was rated:

This morning i have developed a raised red bumpy rash (spotty) on the side of my neck and shoulder. It was itchy but I but some Savlon on it and now it doesn't itch. Is this an allergic reaction of some kind? I sat in a field on Sunday having a picnic. I have no other symptoms.
JA: The Dermatologist can help. To begin, when did the rash first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: In the middle of last night. Just Savlon antiseptic cream
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a dermatologist about the rash?
Customer: No.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: I take Losarton for high blood pressure.

Got it.

Please wait.

I am writing the answer.

Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for waiting.

I am very sorry for your symptoms.

I understand your concern.

The symptoms sound like an allergy.

Response to allergen varies from person to person.

The cause may not be apparent always.

It is usually from food.

Environmental factors can be there too.

Other probable can be dermatitis, bite.

You can take benadryl now.

Hydrocortisone cream can be applied.

If the symptoms do not improve, I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Your satisfaction is my goal.
