Rash Red Dots on Chest-Is this reaction to Famvir or Trazadone or something else?

Recommended Posts


I am taking a number of different meds but most have been started recently. I have been getting a rash (NOT HIVES) on my chest on and off for the past several months. They are red dots. Some come to a white head and you can pop them like zits..others just remain as red welts and then disappear after a few days. Some are 1mm others are 2mm. They are in the middle of my upper chest, undernath my right peck, undernath my lower peck and closer to my neck.

I have noticed they get worse when I am in the sun. I think it could be bodys reaction to Herpes (meaning these are not actual Herpes sores) or potentially I am allergic to Famvir or Trazadone. I squeezed one and swabbed it and sent it for PCR culture so that could be useful but I doubt there was enough to get any readings.

Any thoughts? I don't seem to be getting anywhere with this..zit cream doesn't do much and they seem to come and go as they please. However, they seem to have started around the same time i started Trazadone and could have occured shortly after Famvir but I don't know. They are definately itchy and make me feel uncomfortable.

I am also taking Ketoconazole for yeast and recently read this :

Ketoconazole inhibits the breakdown of trazodone leading to increased blood levels of trazodone and potential side effects.

      What was the comment? I don't see it on their official Facebook Given the recent news that Crispr can result in all sorts of erroneous cuts when double strand breaks are involved, I'm surprised to hear they still believe they will run trials in a few months. The FDA recently blocked ex vivo crispr trials, I can't imagine them letting in vivo trials move forward given the recent reports

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.
