    For a month & half now I've been having red, itchy spots, they start off very small bright red spot then within hours they flare up & look like big bug bites, was on oral steroid, didnt help. They started on my hands, then my arms .Antihistamine didnt help, cortizone oinment doesnt help. Now they are on my neck and few on my back. went to allergist, found out im allergic to dust, dust mites, cats, dogs, feathers, grass, ragweed.This really driving me crazy. Allergist ordered blood work. waiting to see what happens.
