I have been battekubg pelvic pain for many years. I am in pt for pelvic floor therapy. So far it has not helped. My question is....I have been taking vicodin for pain, I take three a day. I have a rash...round, red and lighter in the middle, palpable. My doctor thinks that it is from the vicodin. I have had the rash before in the past, when I have not been on vicodin. Does any one else ever have this kind of rash. They are about a quater in size and do not itch. It hink it mybe a symptom of Lupus, but am afraid to ask Doctor, I think they think I am nuts. My file is so thick from all the test. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

I get a rash under my arms and itching after taking Cabergoline, which is one of three meds that
helps with my pituatary gland as mine is enlarged, my allergy doctor gave me a steroid cream to use
on certain days to keep the rash under control.
So either you can get a steroid cream to help with the rash from the Vicodin or maybe
the doctor could try you on a different medication, this is something you should bring up
and talk with your doctor about.
Fot me the itching and rash start right away after taking Cabergoline. I tried the other
two meds for my problems and had worse side effects from them, so for me I'm stuck with
my situation...
Hope this info helps and definitely talk this over with your doctor cause it's either live with it
hopeing a bigger reaction doesn't happen or a medication change...
Good luck in what you choose to do!

Hi,
Rashes can be symptomatic of many things. Since it's not only associated with when you take vicoden, I think you need to talk to your doctor about it. It might be help if you could go in when you have the rash, or even take a photo so you can show it to your doctor, as there are so many types.

I had a rash like that, started as a large round raised spot with lighter skin in the middle. I went to the derma cause my PCP had no clue what it was. The derma declared it was pityriasis rosea (sp) and I ended up with a bunch of tiny little spots all over my truck. She told me to go tan and after I did that for about a month, it was gone!

Look into it, you may need a derma to diagnose!
