Re: Has anyone on this board taken blood pressure med. and gotten itchy red rash from
About 2 months ago, I started to itch and I developed a rash on my feet, lower legs, shoulder and neck, forearm and buttocks. Primary care dr prescribed a cream and antihistimine pill, and things got better. When I stopped with the medication, the rash came back with a vengeance and after tolerating it for a few more weeks, I went to a dermatologist. When it was realized that I was taking lisinopril, the dr commented that it can cause the rash. Since I have been taking this for years without incident, I was not convinced, until I remembered that CVS sent a note with my refill back in Feb that they changed to a new supplier for this prescription and it would thus look different. Well different it is, as it now looks like that was around the time things started. The biopsy taken at the drs will tell the story, so I am just waiting to make it official.
