for 2 months now, i have been going thru breakouts on different parts of my body. it always appears in a different area. starting on my part of my chest, then back, then stomach, waist, then back again in a different spot, etc. the rash starts off like insect bites, red and raised, starts itching like mad, for about 4 to 5 days, then gets even with skin and almost fades away but not quite for about a week, then starts again. no new drugs, food, soap, clothes, etc. not bedbugs. no bumps below the elbow, or on the legs below thighs.
any ideas? i did go to the doctor and she said if she didnt know, but if it kept coming to go to a spec. but unfortunately, for a dr to see what i is i have to be seen on the first day it starts, which so far has not been possible with the drs i have tried.
when it first started, i rewashed every piece of clothing in my closet, and all my bed linens just in case, but no help.
anyone ever had anything like this??? or ideas
Hi yardsailer, I will tell you my recent experience! Two weeks ago I woke up itching on the inner thigh area, and right lower side. I felt bumps there, also, and real bad itchiness. I used some cortisone5, and after a day or so, it went away. Did what you did, washed everything, racked my brains wondering what product I used new? It came back a few days later, this time on the left side, under my arms, and right lower hip. I went to the doctor, and he said it was a yeast thing (candida), which scared me. I thought it was something I picked up in a public bathroom (I try to be careful, but you never know). The doc said this is something that just pops up, and is not catchy. Gave me Ketoconazole 2% cream and it went away in a few days. Hasn't come back, and I hope it doesn't.
Just a suggestion, and maybe you can talk to your doctor about the cream I used.
