Allergies board


As the other poster said, you need to look at allergy issues. I didn't have anything as severe as what you are describing, but I was having some serious skin issues just about daily on my upper body. I tried everything. Somedays it would be much worse. I then realized that after taking certain medications, it got worse. I wasn't allergic to the medicine but to a filler that was common in all of these pills: povidone. I stopped taking all of them but was still not COMPLETELY better. I then realized that the Synthroid pill I took everyday had povidone in it so I had to change brands. Now, my skin is much better but I'm still having a little bit of trouble. So, I'm trying to figure out where it is coming from.

An allergist might be your best bet if you can't get it under control. My derm was of no help to me.
