Red spots on cheeks

I am taking tegretol and I have many red bumpy spots (rash) on both sides of my cheeks. It seems to come and go but right now it is the worst it has been. Has anyone else experienced this?

Have yourself seen promptly by a doctor, Collette. You could be having an allergic reaction to Tegretol. Less likely but still possible would be a case of Shingles, particularly if your pain levels have been kicking up lately.
