I need some help. Four months ago I gave birth to my second child. A few weeks after this I got red, itchy welps on my body. It started in my hair and got worse on my arms and legs. I went to the local er they said it was an allergic reaction, gave me steriods, and sent me home. Said use benydral if needed. It passed and so I went about my day. Then a few weeks later the were back this time I went to the er with a fever and shortness of breath. When I got there they put me on ivs and as they did I got sick as well. Again I got sent home with severe allergic reaction to something. Then I went to my doctor they put me on zyrtec and sent me to an allergist to be tested. Before that appointment I went to the er a third time. This time I was also given a breathing treatment. I should also mention that I do have asthma but use my inhaler less that three times a month if that. Up to the third er visit I had used it at least once a week. So I see the allergist but before the appointment I have another outbreak but took some benydral and was okay it seemed. So I eventually had allergy testing done( the pricks on the back) and i broke out on all of them. I got put on a few things- Xzyal, Singular, and Pepcid. At first it seemed okay then three weeks ago I flared up again and they have yet to go away. In fact they get worse each day. I have been back to the allergist and I got another inhaler and another pill, claritain. I don't know what it is but noone else in my family is getting this. I really want the iching to stop. And I want to be able to breath normal again. I have to use my inhaler every day if not twice and that's not normal for me. If anyone has any ideas either what it may be or what to do please help. The allergist said I have a skin condition that I can pronounce but I don't know. Please help.
