Beth, yes it could be from HCTZ or labetalol but there was a two year span of time between between episodes? I got a really bad rash from Inderal. I could try stopping the HCTZ for one day & see what happens?
FG, my rash got so bad that I was bleeding in areas. My hands were so torn apart that it made it hard to do anything. The exzema on the hands I can do something about by avoiding contact with detergent & wearing gloves.
Alcohol applied as soon as a lesion appears on my tummy works somewhat. It helps with the itching too. Benedryl helps with the itching but again one isn't supposed to apply it on such a wide area.
I also apply vaseline to my hands right after washing them
so seal in the moisture. Then I wear those cotton gloves. Last week when I went for my pap smear I wore them so that I didn't have to keep washing my hands as I'm afraid of getting germs at the Dr's office. As you know my thyroid flares up when I get a virus.
Thanks. I think I've learned my lesson
