Look what stress can do

I’ve had to deal with this for the last 2 weeks, plus. I’m using an anti-itch cream (2 kinds, one with hydrocortisone and Gold Bond, which does not have that, but I can’t remember what it does have. I’m also using Miracell to help moisturize the skin. I’m keeping it dry. I do not really “do” dairy. Maybe once a week. Suggestions, anyone? I want this to go away. I feel like a leper everytime someone sees it. And it’s not something I can really hide, as it’s on my right wrist and it’s 90 degrees outside. Not really wanting to wear the long shirts and sweat makes it worse.

    Maybe an allergy medicine will help too? I know my son used Zyrtec when his eczema was flaring up and it seemed to help a bit.

    The only other thing I can think of is get allergy testing done to make sure it’s not something else causing it, maybe soap, or lotion or a different food makes it flare?

    Gosh sweetie, if you think it is an allergic reaction then try a Claritin Redi tab. See if it doesn’t kill those hives. It’s only a 24 hour commitment. Then if it doesn’t work, I’d get my butt to a doctor. Nasty and boy do I ever feel for you!

    Yes, I have a suggestion. Try Claritin and cortisone ointment, and if it doesn’t go away, go see a doctor. The last time I had a “funny mosquito bite that just won’t go away and has this red circle around it”, it turned out to be Lyme disease.
