1 Bump

SO ITCHY!!!!!!!!!!!!

For almost 2 weeks now I have been extremely itchy, mostly on my arms, chest, back and stomach. After a couple days of itchiness I got these red bumps all over. It's driving me crazy! I have never had this before and will be going to the doc asap but need some relief NOW. Any suggestions?

  • Well the weather is getting colder. Do you use a moisturizer after you bathe? You should try that. Also, have you changed soaps, laundry detergent, body products? Could be contact dermatitis. If it doesn't clear up you should see your dermatologist. Good luck.

  • I will be trying the oatmeal bath tomorrow, thanks! At first I thought it was hives and something Im allergic to, but honestly cant think of anything I have changed, not new products or foods lately.

  • Also keep in mind food allergies, meds or new supplements. New clothing, sheets, etc.

  • Have you changed your detergent or body soap lately or even fabric softener? It could be eczema. I don't think that it's dry skin considering the fact that you are broke out. Take some benadryl.
