My son, all of a sudden started getting a red rash of varying sizes all over his body while sitting in the living room. He took a shower and it got worse. He has very good hygiene and showers every day. The rash itches very much and he has not contacted any plants, bushes, weeds or anything that we can determine. I have been researching various causes and solutions, but have not found the correct answer that sounds logical to his lifestyle. He has not eaten anything different than normal. The one thing that I wonder about is peanut butter, since he loves the stuff and it gives him the protein he likes for working out at the gym. He has been eating it for years and he is 17. Could he possibly be developing an allergic reaction to the creamy style stuff. Like I mentioned earlier, the rash just started to itch and it is over the back, legs, upper torso, lower torso, arms, practically the entire body. Dumbfounded. It just flared up!
