A month or so, I developed a body itch. Usually one or two mosquito bite-like bumps appear, I scratch them, and it develops into a rash. These patches of red bumps have been appearing all over my body and I can't seem to get rid of them! I have been through several anti-itch creams, and none seem to work! I have been to the doctor twice - the first time, he prescribed me some pills that help with itching, but the only thing they helped me do is sleep. The second time, he prescribed me some sort of "urea" (ureacortesoneoid or something), which provided temporary releif of areas that had broken out, but after I stopped using the cream, the rash came back! He also took a blood sample, and tested me for things such as calcium deficiency, but the results showed no irregularities.
These red bumps are not painful, or filled with puss. They look like bumps from any regular rash. However, i do occasionally get white bumps as well that are also not painful or filled with puss. I have spent countless hours trying to figure out what this skin condition could be, but I just cannot figure it out!

  • You can try any of these simple remedies...I hope one will really work for you:* Take an oatmeal bath by grinding oatmeal in a food processor and adding to your bath. You can add cornstarch and baking soda which also can help sooth the itching. * Aloe vera gel is soothing and cooling to itchy skin, and contains many ingredients which help the skin to heal. * Grapefruit seed extract mixed with water can be sprayed on the hives to help them go away faster. * Pineapple is a natural anti-inflammatory which you can apply directly to skin. * Green tea contains natural antihistamines, supports your immune system, is high in antioxidants to prevent skin damage, and contains Quercertin, a natural antihistamine bioflavonoid. It can be brewed and splashed on your hives, and also taken internally in the morning if you can handle the caffeine. HTH:)
