    Rash On Back, Sides and Stomach.
    bpcookie posted:
    Hi all, *waving* I just developed this rash on my torso area, especially on my back. They dont itch and they just all of a sudden showed up. I looked up rash photo's and it looks like the measles or perhaps a 100 bug bites. I havent really been any where except the Gyno's office. I thought maybe the table that I had to lay on had some kind of chemical I was allergic to but they are very careful with what kind of chemicals that they use. Also I was just put on an antibiotic but I have taken it before with out any problems. All my soaps and detergents are dye and perfume free. My hubby doesnt have a rash.

    Anyone have this problem before? Im really freaked out because I have this thing about being grossed out by bugs. I would just die if it were bug bites.

    Anything look familiar on these for you guys?

    Cookie - Unfortunately, you can develop an allergy after taking something or using something for a time. The pic link within the link describes it as looking like measles.
