Itchy splotches after being touched
An_247883 posted:
This has been happening for sometime now, if someone touches my arm or hand or wherever they've touched bare skin I get these itchy red splotches where they touch. Also I noticed the other day after flossing my teeth I had red marks on my face where my hands touched or the floss touched and those didn't itch. It seems to be an upper body thing and last week I had a bad episode where my neck and back were itchy terribly and were bright red. Sometimes there are bumps other times it's just red skin. I took Bendaryl that time and it did seem to help. I am overweight and currently doing weight watchers and walking daily. This is very frustrating to me and would like to know what it is!
