    Afternoon All,

    I have had this rash for nearly one and a half months now the characteristics are:

    Not itchy,
    Small red clusters which do feel slightly raised (only slightly),
    Started on my back, it was a whitish oval shape and red around the outside, looked like a towel burn from after the shower, the rash then appeared underneath in a diagonal line.

    Then I noticed in on my legs, these look as if they are imbedded into my skin, not raised or itchy.

    My arms have only a small amount currently and they are small clusters here and there.

    I did have 2 x injections about 2 months ago for MMR and Dip Tet, but I was told rashes if I were to get one appear normally around 2 weeks after then dissappear.

    Recently I also had a mole removed from my back through local anesthetic, but nothing was mentioned by the doctor who removed my mole.

    I have tried AntiSan on the rash, it dissappeared on my right leg, but I have applied the same cream on my left leg 2-3 times but with no success?

    I will try and post some pics up soon, I hope someone can help, it's not painful or anything, just a bloody nuisance as the rash clusters seem to appear on my fingers sometimes also.

    Thanks all

    Sounds to me like it could be shingles. I would go to your doctor for more medical advice. They will be able to tell you straight off what it is and give you a treatment plan to help. It could be something serious to something as simple as changing your washing powder.

    Thanks for both replies.

    In replies to both, the picture, mine is nothing like that. Its no way as severe.

    In regards to shingles, I looked up signs and symptoms, shingles mentions pain and burning sensations, as said in my first post, there is no pain, itchyness or anything.

    I will phone my local surgery tonight, and see if they can book me in for monday, a simple cream will do, or even another injection to get rid of the bugger!!

    Bit of urticaria? You allergic to anything? The chap who recommended some antihistamines like piriton was a good suggestion.
