I have an intermittent rash to my hands, feet, arms and legs. It sometimes spreads to my face. I wake up with the rash and it usually disappears as the day goes by. It is red, itchy and antihistamines worsen the rash. If I take any drug that has an antihistamine in it, the rash will be raised, itchy, and hot. I am also senstive to the sun on my legs and arms causing hives. If I wear tennis shoes, the rash appears and causes swollen feet. To my knowledge, food is not a contributor and I can find no link to soaps or detergent. Anyone out there with the same symptoms, since doctors seem to think antihistamines could not possibly cause this rash to worsen?
