I stopped taking Xyzal on Wed for allergy testing next week. I have to stop it for 7 days. The next day I started itching like crazy...my head, face, neck, arms, stomach, back, chest and shoulders. Most of the itchy areas also have red bumps. At first they were small, but now they are bigger and some have them have broken open and have bled. It looks really gross. I also have an eczema rash under my arms, but it's not itching so much.
I have no idea why this is happening and I'm extremely tempted to start taking the Xyzal again because I'm so uncomfortable. Has anyone experienced this? Does anyone know why this is happening? Does anyone know how to stop the itching without affecting the allergy testing?
