For this past week my skin has been getting really itchy and it's driving me crazy. I was taking Allegra daily for allergic rhinitis when it started. Then I was prescribed loratadine/betamethasone and I really don't see much improvement. I don't see any rash at first, but when i start scratching my skin gets really red and swollen. It happens maybe 3 times a day for about an hour, but it gets really intense and it's mostly on my neck, arms, chest, lower scalp, and back. The weird thing is that after a while the itch and redness will disappear completely and usually reappear somewhere else later on. Has anyone had a similar experience?
I am a 21 year old female, by the way.
