Are you postive that the medication is what is causing the rash? Could it have happened anyway? You might have rosacea and not realize it. I haven't heard of zoloft causing skin rashes, but it could very well be a side effect. And I just looked in my book and rash is a side effect. I would talk to the doctor and see if there is anything that you can take that is similar that doesn't cause rash. I hope that you get this resolved. Sometimes the side effects are worse than what you are trying to take. I tried zoloft many years ago and could not tolorate it.

Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen
