Shingles or RSD related rash?

Has anyone else encountered this? I have had this for upwards of 6 - 8 weeks and just had it flare up again a few days ago. I have tried numerous creams and ointments, but none provide any real relief. Curious if others have encountered a rash with their RSD/Causalgia.

Re: Shingles or RSD related rash?

How are you? I have experienced a rash with RSD before.. I was perscribed Halobetasol cream. It helped alot.... What does your rash look like.? Mine look like round raised dry red patches. Almost like broken ulcers.. They did not itch either...

Mine have itched unbelieveably! It really does look like shingles and the added pain is quite the bonus! The rash follows the nerve down my leg from the point of my original injury to my toes. It's red with a fair amount of swelling. It does ulcerate.

Re: Shingles or RSD related rash?

I don't know if this is the same thing, but I break out in a read ulcer type bump when I stay in the sun too long. It's a reaction to my meds. They do ich alot too. I have them right now all over my chest. I spent too much time in the sun at Lake Tahoe last weekend.
