    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    my husband has suffered thrugh the same delimma for almost 3 months. We thought it was dairy, then gluten, now soda...he uses calamine lotion to curb the rash and itching -this seems to help. The symptoms start out of no where and we don't know what is really causing the suffering - one thing we do know is that when he eats gluten/dairy products, the symptoms become worse.
    We are going to try bath salt and he is going to seek medical help. Sometimes he will have the chest caughs that seem to block his airway - this happened a couple of times.
    Nothing unusual occurs in our household that I suspect will trigger such skin irritation.

    This is to reply to the mystery skin rash discussion.
