    The last sentence you had a problem. Remember that the tenses in a sentence should always agree.
    She had gone to the doctor-past perfect
    to have the rash on her neck checked out.-past simple

    Both actions happen in the past but we use past perfect to indicate which action happened first. Here is a video to check out: http://www.skypeenglishclasses.com/skype-english-blog/videos/past-perfect-woman-who-lived-in-the-wall/
