I developed an insane itch thought it was maybe a yeast thing, nope not yeast but itchiness continued went to trunk and legs, started swelling, turned deep red and then swelled up. I used benzocaine to get through my work day My trunk swelled up and then my hands went nuts too. Itching swelling redness. Went to doc and went on a booster dose of prednisone and an antihistamine of hydroxzine. It took a few days to kick in but the swelling started to go down but in the mean time I started getting numbness/tingling in my fingertips. The skin under my fingernails separated from the nail and now my fingers are drying, cracking, and bleeding. I still have numbness/tingling in my fingertips. Very little itching now but my fingers are killing me, any body ever had the same?
