i started 3 weeks ago with a rash on my neck and within 2 hours it was on my upper back and within 2 days it was over most of my bosy, last week it has spread to the tops of my feet and hands and is extremely itchy.. benadryl pills or shots haven't helped and neither has calamine lotion. doctors at the hospital can't seem to figure it out. they did a skin biopsy last week and am still waiting for results. does anyone have any ideas??

  • I have the same thing!! Did you ever figure out what it was cause I'm tired of my doctors making me pay for expensive creams that don't work because they don't know what it is..

Did you ever figure out what it was cause I'm tired of my doctors making me pay for expensive creams that don't work because they don't know what it is..my 12 year old has the same thing at the moment, im wondering if its because of her allergy to cats, do you have any animas at all, when my daughter picks up her kitty, she starts itching, so im thinking its allergies to cats :( hope you fuge it all out!!

  • You have to wait for the test results...its better to seek MD opinions first...Maybe its from dust, animals or even from food that you eat...check out everything that you did before you got the rash then start tracing it all out from there... HTH:D
