Bad rash on chest that won’t go

I suffer alkergic asthma in the spring, so told to continuously take anti GO

told me to stop taking them now for a break. I came out in a very ugly red blistered rash across my chest and up my neck. My GP said it was probably just coincidence, but after 3 weeks it is still driving me nuts. Does anyone take anti histamine continuously or must I always have this ugly itchy rash. Many thanks.

Are you sure it’s not shingles?

I too wondered if it was shingles. It may be wise to get it checked out again.

In theory shingles should not last as long as 3 weeks but you must get it checked out asap.

Get it checked out. It's easy to assume it's allergies since you are used to that but it could be something else.
