I am looking for answers to my problem. About 2 years ago in June I woke up because it felt like something bit me on the back of my neck (hairline). the next morning it was a bit swollen and a few days latter it became very itchy and began to spread. the patches stayed on the back of my head right above my hairline, but moved from one side to the other. It finally went away but returns in the fall and lasts all winter.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I try not to scratch but I guess I do without thinking. It breaks open and oozes like poison ivey but does not look like it at all. I thought about a spider bite, but why would it act like that?

I have had a rash for around a year and a half that has, in the last month, spread to different parts of my body. When the rash started it was a circular shape that was empty in the middle Recently I have developed more of the flat, red spots on my hips; the circular rash on my arm has spread; I have the raised itchy spots on my elbows, knees, and hands.
I also have these empty circular rashes but they seem to be permanent. It started with one but now i have about 6 large empty circles all over my body they look like scar tissue with a few lumps inside of them. I have had eczema since i was born so my dermatologist dismisses it as that but even oral steriods, steroid creams and fungal creams do not help. I do not wear certain clothes without feeling conscious of the rashes.

In the last 3 wks I have had the most strangest things happening to me. First I started getting severely itchy palms and soles of my feet, then I started getting these unusual red flat rash lesions appearing suddenly, first I noticed them on the tops of my hands and fingers, then they would suddenly dissapear and appear on the insides on my arms. They never last long, they come and go very quickly. Ive been taking antihistamines for 3wks now, hands and feet still get very itchy but they help with that. But the rashes still come and go every day. Now I also get red flat groups of spots on my legs, my stomach, neck, inner thights. My doctor has done blood tests and has me on a restrained diet to eliminate allergens. But cant work out what it is. At first he thought it was hives, but after seeing some of my unusaual red lesions he said its not typical of hives. Im taking photos every day as they appear and email them to him, so he can look at them closely on the computer. I might have to see a dermatologist and get more tests done.

My doctor aggrees that I have 'Hives.' Hives is an allergic reaction caused by the body to an allergen of some kind. It could be from some kind of food, or from other things. Its been 4wks now. My hands and feet arent as itchy anymore. But like you I had severely itching palms and soles of feet and inbetween the sides of my fingers. I still get rashes coming and going, but not as much. Perhaps its slowly going away. Anti-histamines took the itching away completely, I took non drowsy 'Telfast 180' it worked a treat. Try it. and go see a dermatologist or your doctor. take photos of your rashes like I did. The dr found them so useful.

I have had this same problem for 1 year and a half. Tried every over the counter medicine imaginable. Cortesteriod cream from DR did not work. I believe it to be Norwegian scabies and ordered Lyclear from Canada for around 30 bucks. Also shaved a lot of my hair off. Before that vaseline seemed to provide some relief, except the bumps would move. Also, recently treated my hair with CVS lice shampoo and combed out with special comb. Feel 90 percent better and pray that they are gone for good. Good Luck to all who have suffered with this.

Hi Mary i have the same thing, went to a dermatolog he said it was an allergic reaction but not from the skin it is somthing inside the body. I took a medicine called ATARAX it really helped you stop itching then the red bumps go away however the problem is after few days or weeks they come back it s not a permanant solution. I wanted to ask you something: when i shave my legs with Silk epile or Brown i mean with a machine all my leg will star itching,the red bumps and the rach start where the hair has been removed, does this happen with you too?

Also my scalp has been really itchy and ive been checked for lice and i dont have it. No one else who im living with get these rashes. Ive also thought maybe scabies but i believe its contagious, and like i said before no one else gets these rashes. I get them on my arms, neck, back, and legs. does anyone have any idea what it could be?

Hi wusta i have the same thing and in the winter it rarely appear but in the summer it is the peak. ATARAX really helped you stop itching and the rach disappear after 10 min however it come back the 2nd day or week. just wanted to ask u what is poison ivy/oak? thx

I've never really had a skin rash or any allergic reaction on my skin until about 2 years ago. I started getting these itchy red dots. The symptoms are basically like fungus, poison ivy/oak. Starts out as a red dot, can get bumpy. And if you scratch it, it gets worse or spreads and it seems contagious(only on my body). When its severe, it scales and lumps up and if you scratch it, it oozes...jus like poison ivy but i'm not in contact with any. If i start gettin these rashes, it'll usually appear in other areas of the body. Its the worse around the arms, hands, legs,feet area. Will appear on other areas of the body but will go away in a couple days. But in the feet and hands area, will usually be more severe and stay for a few weeks and soemtimes a month+. The weird thing is, I've been getting this in the beginning of summer, around spring and at times during summer. it usually begins right before and will go away completely by winter and will not occur until the following spring. Remember, this problem has never happened until 2 years ago and now, its kinda consistant. Is it allergies, heat rash? the over the counter stuff dont' really help and it itches like crazy, but i don't scratch it. I've tried benydryl, hydrocortizone, calamine lotion...doesn't really help. But it does take away the itch at times. thanx in advance
