My arm is all red and itchy it's driving me just. My husband thinks I came in contact with latex I'm not too sure I've been to the kids school, Starbucks and home there is nothing with latex in the house because it makes me rashy. What do you think?

Run cold water over it and stop scratching it. You'll be fine.

Looks like contact dermatitis. Take some Benadryl.

Have you been cleaning? Last winter I developed an allergy to Windex. Every time I touch it now, I get a bad rash.

It makes me so sleepy I think I might have some benedryl cream though. It doesn't look like the rash I normally get from latex so I have no clue. It's annoying as hell though.

Swab a dilluted bit of each one on the inside of your other arm and see if it causes a reaction.

You could try that. But as a nurse, I would say liquid. But its your choice.
