re: post 497

Hi. Thanks for the advice. Over the weekend my daughter developed another rash. Apart from the usual kp pimples on her arms she now has bigger pimples on her arms. There are plus minus 5 pimples on each arm &  they have a black dot in the centre upon close examination. What could this be? Thanks.

It is always difficult to be able to diagnose a skin rash without being able to see your daughter.It is possible that your daughter has rash called erythema multiforme.This is an allergic reaction often to an antibiotic or other kind of medicine.it would be best to ask your doctor to see your daughter or even be better would be a visit to a dermatologist.
