Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
There can be hundred (no, thousands) of things that can cause a rash, so in many cases, it is impossible to find specific cause. If the Benadryl works, great. Not being able to see this rash first-hand, I really can't help you very much, but I can tell you that it has nothing to do with his tubes.
