    Default Unusual skin rash.

    Hi
    Yesterday and today I've had strange skin rashes. Yesterday it happened at work where I couldn't stop scratching and it got incredibly hot. So I took an antihistamine and it relieved the itchiness and redness. About eight hours later the rash returned but it different places so I took another antihistamine.
    Woke up this morning and no sign. I've gone to a baby shower this afternoon and I've come home, had dinner and sat down to relax. Started to feel sore on my body and the rash has returned.
    Has anyone had a similar rash? Picture attached. ImageUploadedByBub Hub1340542114.629902.jpg

    My first thought is hives. Are you allergic to anything?

    Only latex. And I get hay fever. I read a colonoscopy a week a go to check for inflammation of the bowels. So I may have intolerances to some foods. I haven't had a rash like this before. At work it circulated around the upper torso now it's all over the torso and starting to begin on my legs.

    Looks like urticaria which makes sense that anti histamine helped.
    Sometimes it can be a reaction to a food but in a spot like that I would think washing powder or new clothes.
    Sometimes you can get idiopathic urticaria - basically who knows why you get it but you do and it can last up to a week. It is quite common to get about a week post a viral illness.
    Regular antihistamines for a couple of days won't do any harm

    I'm allergic to latex as well just a thought does your bra have those plastic bits on it they actually contain latex so could be from that...

    I had a look at the bra and it doesn't look like there's any rubber bits. The material is polyester/ elastene. I think.
