Polka dots... on me.

I woke up this morning with a red rash from head to toe. Is it ever going to end? I just want to get better and be able to get back to life. I went to the doctor (PC) and she started talking about sepsis. Um, I think I'd be in the hospital by now. I did some research and found out about serum sickness, which is when the body builds up antibodies again antibiotics. I think that's what I have. I will know more tomorrow. At least the red splotches look good with my red hair, lol.

Oh no I'm so sorry.  Have they found out what caused it?

Yes, I have taken three different antibiotics since the end of January. The last one I started exactly 2 weeks from the day I got the rash.

No, I went to the doctor again this morning, he was in surgery and after an hour he still hadn't gotten back to the office.

I am sure if it was major I would be much worse by now.

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope they figure out what's causing it.
