| | VERY itchy, bumpy rash
Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone could help me with this.
Last Saturday, I noticed that the sides of my waist was itching and I looked and noticed a rash. Very very fine bumps that almost looked like chill bumps. The next morning, these bumps itched like the devil. I wanted to avoid going to the emergency since the doc would be open the next day but by Sunday evening, I had to go. The rash had spread around my whole waist and it itched so bad that it hurt for my shirt to just touch me.
I went to the ER, the doc gave me two shots, one of cortisone, one of benadryl and gave me a steroid prescription. My evening was miserable because my body still itched.
I went to the dermatologist the next day and he gives me the same old same old that I am allergic to something, we just don't know what. Mind you, this is the FOURTH time this year this has happened to me breaking out, once on my legs, twice on my chest, and now the waist. I haven't had any new soaps, perfumes, medicines, etc. etc. so I don't have a clue to what it is. I did however, wear a new leather skirt Friday but I thought that it seemed odd that just my waist would break out and not my legs.
Does anyone have a clue to what could be the problem?? Any input would be useful. The way that rash hurt, I thought for sure I had the shingles.
P.S. The rash does seem to fade and the itchiness wears off around hours 36 of noticing it. The worst is around the second day.
