my daughter is home from college for a visit and showed me a rash on her chest-it itches sometimes and becomes red and other times the bumps are just there-no redness,
there is also a different looking rash on her mid thigh, larger and irregular shaped bumps with no itching- she has had both for about a month otherwise all is stable-easy for me to say
she refuses to see the dr before her next check-up fearing she may change a medicine that is holding her colitis in check-if this was an alergic reaction to colozol or 6mp would it have gotten much worse
by now?

It may not be her medications. It can be anything really. Allergic reactions can occur at anytime and to just about anything. It's best she sees an allergist to find out what she is allergic to or do the process of elimination such as changing laundry soaps, body lotions and washes, etc.

She should at least call her doctor if she doesn't want to go in for an office visit. The rash should be checked out.

She has a dermatologist, right? (I think you mentioned that in an earlier post.) Why not consult there about the rash. If it's something gastro-related, the dermatologist will refer her, but otherwise can probably diagnose/treat the skin problem. That might help her to get by without moving up her gastro visit, if she prefers to stay on regular schedule. I can understand her point. Best wishes to you both! / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 (generic) Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)
