Rash on arm, doesn't fade under glass

    • Thread Starter

    The rash covers about a £2 coin size near the inside of my elbow, it has the direct appearance of septicaemia and doesnt fade under a glass.

    It's not spread in the 30 mins I've been looking at it. I was feeling nauseous earlier but seem ok now...

    I'm not really sure what to do. Can you get this kind of rash without there being a problem? I was treated for meningitis three or so weeks ago at hospital but it turned out to be a respiratory system infection which has gone now... I'm not sure if they'll think I'm a moron if I go there again... Should I just watch it or would I be fine just going to sleep do you think?

    Well I just want to see if anyone gets this without it being a problem :/ if it spreads or I see it anywhere else I'll call a doctor of course.

    Call NHS direct 08454647

    ^^^^ As above.

    Call the number, and don't play down the symtoms just because you feel silly. If there's a possibility that it's serious, treat it seriously. It's better to be safe than sorry.

    If you are worried enough to ask on here - talk to a real doctor

    What they said. Go to the doctor asap.
