Question: rash with small black itchy spots


 tjomara73 - Sun Jan 01, 2006 8:59 pm

About 4 days ago I noticed a rash with little black spots on my right side, under my breast (on my rib cage area). It's very itchy and tender to the touch, feels like a bruise. 2 days ago I noticed another one on in the middle of my back with no black spots. Just yesterday I noticed that that one now has black spots also. My doctor didn't pay much attention to the spots and just perscribed a cream. He said it was either Contact Dermatitus or Shingles. It doesn't look like either one to me, from the pictures I saw on the internet anyway. I would like a second opinion. Please let me know if you have any idea. I'm really worried. I'm also nursing so I'm afraid of passing it to my baby. I'm a 25 yr old female. Otherwise I have been in good overall health. I had a cough about a week ago and was light headed about a week ago but they probably don't have anything to do with it. Thank you in advance. Tanya
