    reoccurring rash
    Lguarini posted:
    I am writing for my mother. She has this reoccurring rash coming up all over her body in random spots. They look kind of like a bug bite/ blister. She can pop them and water comes out and then it turns to a scab. They itch her like crazy and have been keeping her up at night. A dermatologist told her it was just from stress but I don't think it can be and it is causing her so much discomfort. Also, no one else in our house has gotten this so I am not sure if it can be anything contagious. Any ideas of what this could be? She has tried benedryl and benedryl cream and nothing seems to be helping.
    I have a picture.. but am not sure how to upload it on here?

    wow, I have the same thing off and on for the past 2 years. They could never test it because by the time the first blister starts and the doctor gets an appointment for me - then the blisters aren't active. But this time the blisters are coming with a vegenance all over my body - starts on my hands, elbows, top of my toes, now my waist line. I try to stay clean but it doesnt matter. I finally have a doctor appointment today. I hoe they can finally get a good active one that they can pull the fluid out of to test. I will let you know what I find out. I know mine first starts to itch and hurt at the same time. Then when the blisters are full of liquid (like water) busts it really hurts. Right now they are all over the back of my hands and now they are even creating blood blisters under my hands as well and on my elbows. I can hardly bend my hands for the pain. This is the worse its ever been. Its almost like a rash with blisters and nothing I do (even alcohol) stops it.
