I am currently taking Cephlexin and a sulpha for Cellulitis. I've got a terrible blotchy rash just starting. It's all over my legs and arms. Should I be going back to my doctor tomorrow or do I do E.R. today?

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

The development of rash can be due to allergy.

Usually sulpha causes more allergic reaction.

But cephalexin can also cause it.

I would advise to go to ER for urgent evaluation.

You can take benadryl or zyrtec till you reach ER.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
