Odd rash/bites? on arms, neck, back
sabbymama posted:
Last week I developed a couple small bumps on my forearm, near my elbow. A day later a large scratch-like line of bumps formed on my upper arm. Since then, I have developed multiple blistery, red bumps on my upper arm, elbow area, and patches of them on my neck/upper chest area. There are also two small sections on the small of my back. They are somewhat itchy, more of a stinging feeling, and very red and irritated looking. All are on the right side of my body. I have been taking Benadryl orally and applying triple antibiotic cream to the affected areas for over a week with no improvement and increased appearance of the bumps. My child sleeps in my bed and has shown no sign of developing anything. I have always had sensitive skin and get hives frequently, but never anything like this! I have an appointment with a derm next week, but was hoping someone might be able to provide some insight here.
