It hurt to the touch. It has since gone away mostly (no redness) but now I am extremely itchy. I don't have a fever but I have a headache, some nausea, body aches and pains (especially in shoulders, jaw, and lower back) and fatigue. I just don't feel right and I am having a hard time concentrating or focusing on studying (I'm a full time student). The itchy is driving me insane! Please help.

It started when I was about 4 weeks into using the Duac Gel and appeared quite suddenly, within about 2 days.

The next morning, there was another spot on her other cheek. Basically, for 6 weeks her face keeps getting new spots. We have seen 2 peditricians and 2 dermatologists. They do not know what it is. She was on Keflex for 10 days, Duricef for 10 days and Cipro for 10 days. We have been using Bactroban ointment continuously until this week when we started using altabax ointment. Still, no improvement.
