Strange rash, input appreciated.
I developed a rash on my my stomach, right side as well as my back, right side. They are about ping-pong paddle size. At first I was concerned it was shingles since it had the location and pattern that usually comes with it. My doctor prescribed antivirals just in case (I haven't taken them yet). After 2 days the rash on my stomach shrank slightly, while the one on my back got larger, spreading a bit towards my left side. The rash looks very much like contact dermatitis.
It itches alot. I have not been exposed to any chemicals, poison oak, ivy or anything of that nature. I have thought and thought and can come up with nothing that I have touched. No one in my family has this. Any thoughts/ideas?
PS. The day before the outbreak I drank a GI cocktail at the hospital, but the doctor thought if it was an allergic reaction to that, it would be broadcasted more widely and resemble hives.
