Hi, 12 days ago, a rash appeared on my left hand, its itchy and what looks like small spots under the skin, gradually over the last few days, this rash has spread up my arms a little and has completely covered my face, ears, scalp and neck. Its very itchy, sore and not very nice to look at so i haven't been out of the house for a few days. I saw a doctor a few days ago who said it looked like a contact allergy of some sort and has given me soothing cream and antihistamine tablets. I'm to go back next week if I don't improve. I can't think of anything I have eaten or have been in contact with that may have caused this, I'm at a loss, has anyone suffered similar?
