The rashes are characterized by itching of an intensity that can interfere with sleep or normal activities. The rash results from the entire body reacting to the drug itself and usually develops early in treatment rather than after the drug has been taken for a period of time.

Rash is a change in the skin which affects its appearance and or texture. Most often a rash is localised to one part of the body, but other times it can have an affect on the entire body.

Rashes can cause the skin to change color, become bumpy, dry, itchy, swell among other things that can result in a lot of pain. Because of the wide array of rash symptoms treatments also vary widely.
