My MD has prescribed cream, didn't work. Went to urgent care on wacation that dr gave me a shot of steriods, and pills, plus cream. They went away after completing the 10 day couse then after 5 days, back and this time wose. Went to a dermatologist last Friday she said I need to take antihistamines, and doube up . Omg after the first day of treatments, during the night I woke up, and welts on chest, inside thighs, lower back around stomach area. Of course this development happes on the weekend. Today is sunday and I am tring to make it through this till tommorrow note this has been going on since june 7th when I was in NY. I was at the drug store in NY buying calamine lotion, a guy came up behind me and I asked him if he had a bite too? He showed me his arm looks exaxtly like mine. What is going on ? My dermatologist told me it was a chemical reaction due to my Fibromyalgia? What? I cant wait until tomorrow. If anyone knows howci can get some relief please write me, thanks.
