Have had problem with sudden an unexplained rashes/hives for over 2 yrs. Usually rash looks like bad bout with poison ivy on front of shins. Itches like crazy. Then something more like hives...red, sandpaper like skin on chest, armpit area, chin and face appear. Also itches like crazy. Allergist says not an allergy. Says is autoimmune problem. History: have type 1 diabetes and was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma 1 1/2 yrs. ago and treated with chemo. Are there any other diabetics, cancer survivors who have chronic, itchy rashes?
