Allergies board


I have had pretty severe allergies since I was little to many things like dust, milk products, pollen, and shellfish. Well, the older I got the better it got I stay away from all of these except for the occassional dairy product. Well, last spring I started getting these little, tiny rash like bumps on my chest, back and legs... I always had them on my arms but they popped up in other places too. I have used hydrocortisone cream which helps only slightly. I am wondering if it is an allergic reaction to something but I am not sure what. I went to an allergist but he said he wasn't sure either and wanted to give me a bunch of shots of different stuff that I might be allergic to which kind of scared me. I am not sure exactly what to do. Anyone with a similiar experience or know what's going on? Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated!
