Have you ever heard of allergic or other skin reactions from Metformin?

I am researching a possible cause for a rash. The two times the rash was the worst was when the patient first started Metformin about 10 years ago and then again recently when switching to a different type of Metformin (ER).

There could be other causes, but am wondering if there are any experts on Metformin and skin reactions.

Thanks.
