Ok, so here's the sitch. My girlfriend has acquired an affliction that started about a week and a half ago. She is developing itchy, red, mosquito bite sized bumps on her skin. The sores last for about half a week then disappear only to re-appear near the same area or somewhere else entirely but in greater numbers. It started as only 2 bumps on her lower back but has grew into 8 now.
We have already done our research into bed bugs, fleas, mites, chiggers, etc....no results. Plus its only effecting her. (We live together and sleep together. We also have a mother and her two children as roommates, yet no outbreak with them either.) Checked with dermatologist and there stumped.

This is making her miserable, please help!!! :'(

  • It could be an allergy, get her to try eliminating different foods and see if that makes a difference. I had something similar for most of my life and after a sever reaction a few years ago I realized it was an allergy to vinegar, which is in a lot of foods.

  • One of the most common irritants is sodium Laural sulfate, as synthetic detergent in everything from shampoo to bath soap and toothpaste. Many people develop a sensitivity to this substance. I know because I am one of those unlucky people. The symptoms you described are a lot like the ones I would get. Fortunately, products are available without the chemical.

  • Probably an allergy. What foods that trigger her allergy if she has? If she is allergic to seafoods like crabs and shrimp, thus, she should avoid that. anti aging treatment in houston tx
