Please help! three days ago I woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible rash, had itching and bumps on face and neck as well as redness. The next morning I woke up bright red (almost pink like a boiled lobster) itchy burning rash on my face and neck along with swelling. Went to doctor and he couldn't even think of the name of what i had, he prescribed me a treatment of pills and a steroid based cream, I'm still itching and it's really bad redness is gone but now I have a terrible itch all over my body from scalp to feet and I had pain in my neck glands from swelling (but that's gone now). Looked up my symptoms on online resources and found similar rashes but not equivalents from everything to scarlet fever, rubella, rosecea, blood poisoning, food allergies, etc. Has anyone any info or idea on what this could possibly trully be. I have no insurance so I can't really afford a visit to a specialist at the moment. Please help! Thanx for your time and interest.
