I have been treated for P. aeruginosa for 5 days with proquin xr 500mg. I have a neurogenic bladder and cath. 3 days ago my boyfriend developed a rash resembling bug bites from his knees to his naval it itches severely. Is my condition contagious and could they be related. Thought it resembled poison ivy but was not exposed.

User avatar Hello,
No this would not be contagious. He must have a different condition.

Best wishes.
