Hello, I am a 49 years old woman and three months ago I got some small red itchy bumps in all my body minus my neck & face and they haven't got away. At first, I thought it was an allergic reaction so, I took antihistaminic (Benadryl, Zyrtec) but they didn't work. Then, I went to a dermatologist and he gave me a cream that has cortisone that is called "Halobetasol Propionate Cream" and that didn't work either. I also went to a gynecologist, I made a
FSH blood test and the results were high. He said, I was in a pre-menopause and he gave me "Prempro" pills (estrogens, progesterone) to regulate the hormones. I've been taking them for 2 weeks and the rash hasn't stopped at all.

Please help me, advice me on what I should do next... which doctors should I visit and what medicaments should I take?

Thanks in Advance.

  • Well, one of them couldn't figure out what they were... basically he didn't say anything constructive. He gave me the medicaments according to how they looked. The other doctor said it was a dermatitis case. So, soon, I will be going to an allergist and doing some tests.
