Why do I get rashes that swell into pus filled boils?
Q: I am 24 years old; last year I had some rashes on my chest, back, shoulders, thighs and lower legs with serious itching in the night. I also had some rashes on my inner palms but no itching. Doctors prescribed anti-histamines for a few weeks and the symptoms subsided. This year, I developed rashes only on my inner palms and on my sole. Within a week the rashes swell to big boils that had some watery content inside. While treatment was going at the other end (avil and other allergy tablets were given in small doses), the boils used to disappear and reappear, but they swell very fast. Within a few days these boils also got infected with streptococcus (some yellowish pus came out of it making things painful). I met a good doctor and he treated me well. Now its under control. But a few rashes appear now and then. My question is what exactly is this and how did I get it?
A:This condition may be Pompholoyx (allergy to dietary / inhalant factors) or an ID eruption (allergy to fungal infection - commonly in groins/ feet). Stay under the treatment of your doctor.
