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.

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      I wish you luck my friend! It’d be nice to find something! The only two things I’ve ever tested positive for during this whole mess was a fungal infection in the groin creases, found by biopsy, and the nerve biopsy found nerve damage. I just hate thinking I’m unluncky enough to have HSV1 which is suppose to be the most tame where supposedly people have few if any problems with it, and mine have been endless! Do you have extremely sweaty scrotum and inner thighs when you wake up and periodically throughout the day? That’s been driving me nuts!

      Sorry to bombard your post hun but I’ve got a cut too on my vagina (labia) I shaved the night previous and the next day I had an itch so I itched with but I didn’t put my hand down their I used my knickers and all of a sudden I felt an irratation so I went to go have a look and I found this, it doesn’t hurt when touched and doesn’t hurt when I pee I can sit around and stuff, is this the same thing as yours? I’m going insane right now I’ve got health anxiety I want to cry thinking I have herpes 1st pic is what it was like when I looked first  2nd pic is when I got out the shower  3rd pic is now  and 4th pic is when I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it ( it never hurt either)  After shower pic

      That is exactly what mine look like (on one side of labia anyway) and the rest are kind of dark red flat pimple bumps
