Itchy Red Rash :(
August 27, 2008 6:39pm CST
So yeah, i got this rash, and at the moment it spans lightly over my arms, but when it hits my collar bone it goes wild- front of my shoulders basically. I havent been scratching it because at the end of the day, ive taken allergy tablets to calm the itch. Im now out of them and am very tempted. It has been three days and it does not look any better... I was wondering if anyone thinks it may be stress related because i have been under alot of pressure lately... etc. No- I havent changed washing liquids or powders etc... so it is not to do with my clothes... any suggestion? It looks rather red and blotchy, a little like dry skin... but i have moisturised it too.. Help?

it could be an allergy not really of your detergent but maybe something you ate, you may have been gradually developing a food or drink allergy you are not yet aware of. then again it may be the shower water you use is too hard. what lotion are you using? i recommend eucerin calming cream. it seems to work whenever i get a rash.
