Hey guys, medical question here.
Don't worry, nothing serious. Doctor's office isn't open yet so I'm trying to do my own research.
Last night when I went to bed I had two "bug bites" on my shoulder. They were small and itchy, one raised from the skin a little bit.
I've had a cold for a little while. I've taken a generic brand version of Nyquil before I went to bed (30ml, recommended dose) and during the day I'd been taking Buckley's cough medicine. The previous night I'd had a half dose of Nyquil.
Since these were the only unusual things I consumed, and since I never take either of these, I figure I'm having an allergic reaction to one or both of them.
The rash has spread. I'm now covered in these little "bites", especially on my torso, arms and hips. My back is the worst though, with several very large areas of redness that are slightly raised from the skin. It is quite itchy. My legs and head only have a couple.
Anyone have any experience with this? I suspect it was the Buckleys because it made part of my lip twitch (part of my lip which in the past has swollen due to an obscure allergy). Anyway, as I said I'll be seeing a doctor anyway, but I wouldn't mind knowing something in the couple hours I have to wait. Thanks.
