Nausea and Rashes, but not pregnant? This all started a few weeks ago with an intense itching sensation behind my knees and a rash developed near coxcix. Doctor issued cream (Hc Powder Clotrimaderm cream). This was nearly a month ago - mostly cleared up but still somewhat visible.
Then a few days later I had a major rash breakout on my face only. That took approx 3 days to clear up - I used Benadryl.
Then about a week ago I started feeling nauseated. It seems to get better when I eat. But comes and goes. Also headaches come and go.
Definitely not pregnant - cycle finished just a week ago.
I am South African now surviving first Canadian Winter so at first I thought possible reaction to heating air etc in homes and cold air outdoors or potential carbon monoxide poisoning. Tested and detector declares area clear. Our apartment is over a hundred years old - could it be something in the air - an allergic reaction?

  • could be zoster/shingles/herpes, but it could be mold...especially in the old house. You can buy a mold detector kit online for $10 but it's $30 to analyze it..
