Skin Irritation that I am not sure where coming from

Brittsj5 posted:
A few days ago my feet at night were really itchy, in the morning I got up and did the dishes and all of a sudden I had a rash all over my arms and my feet. I thought I was having a allergic reaction to our dish soap but hadn't ever before. I had recently put on a new ring and when I took it off It stopped and went away not long after. Here is when I thought I figured out what it was. NOPE. It came back the next morning but not as bad. It will go away when I put some alveeno lotion on it. When I go out side it also gets worse. I am thinking it is just dry skin and from the weather change but its never been like this before. I am not sure what it is or what to do. If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

Dear Brittsj5,
I think that this is a case where you need to see a dermatologist. It's impossible to determine what could be causing the rash without seeing it. If it is an allergy, it would have to be something that got on the skin of your arms and your feet. So the dish soap and the ring could not be the culprits.
Good luck!
