About a week ago I developed a few itchy spots and thought it might be chiggars (although it is not the right time of year for them). However, it very quickly turned into a rash that spread all around my waist and other unmentionable places. Within a couple of days it has spread down my legs to my knees & up my torso and is now climbing up my back and neck. So far it is not on my hands, face or feet. It's unbearably itchy even with round the clock benadryl. Unbearable! I can't even sleep at night it's SO bad. I went to the dermatologist on Monday and he seemed to think it was just a contact reaction to detergent or soap but I already use All Free & Clear and nothing with perfume in it just because I have dry skin. He only gave me some elecon cream to use. It's not really helping much and the rash just keeps spreading. I've never had hives before so don't really know if that's it or what to do. I have another appt. in the morning. Anybody had this before?
