Keep your skin clean and dry and avoid any further injury. Use the medication your physician prescribes. If the rash becomes more extensive, becomes more painful, or worsens in any other way, contact your physician or get evaluated in the emergency department.
Additionally, blood in your urine, skin swelling, or a rise in blood pressure may be signs of kidney inflammation. You need to see a physician as soon as possible if any of these occur.
