Still fighting red itchy bumps

and now I have one developing under my right eyebrow, almost on my lid. I went to an infectious disease specialist on Friday (sounds lovely, right?) and he had no idea what to make of it, either. I'm on week six of this, still have fever and respiratory irritation/coughing. He did do a full bloodwork panel on me, so I truly hope something, anything, turns up on it and we will know where to go from here for some relief. I swear, anything in the world is better than itching ALL. THE. TIME. Oh, and now I have that "other" problem we ladies get from too many antibiotics. At least I know how to take care of that one!

DS developed a rash last week. I feel your pain. He was diagnosed with pityriasis rosea. It is a mildly itchy rash that lasts approx 6 weeks. It is not contagious and is believed to be viral. No cure, except time. I have missed your previous posts, but could this be what you have?

No...I wish, at least then I'd know what it was and it would be almost over. This looks like chicken pox and must be something odd and strange, as six doctors have no idea what to make of it. Leave it to me.

I hope the bloodwork will determine what is wrong. It must be so frustrating for you, especially with all that itching, and now with the other problem (cranberry juice!!). (((((((hugs)))))))

Could it be a form of allergy?

HUGS!

I have psoriasis, and I go through period where I itch horribly all of the time. One thing that helps sometimes is to take a low dose of Benadryl. It doesn't completely make it stop, but it does make it more bearable. I use the children's chewable Benadryl and take 1 tablet instead of the adult dose. It helps with the itching but doesn't make me sleepy. Just something you might try. Oh, if this works for you, you can get the generic at Target for a pretty good price.

I keep thinking about your problem. Last night I read about celiac disease, which has dermatitis herpetiformis as one of the possible symptoms. People with celiac disease are allergic to gluten.

Have you ever had fifth's disease? I think it is pretty uncommon for adults, but it can happen. If you had it as a child though, you should be immune now. The symtoms are generally rash and severe cold symptoms. I would think the blood test would pick it up if it were this though.

Any way you could have been exposed to a tick?

Where are you from? If it's near Arizona, New Mexico, etc. look into Valley Fever.

Good luck! I can only imagine how horrible this is.

I can't believe you still don't have an answer about your skin problem. I am so sorry for you. Did the infectious disease dr. recommend that you go somewhere else or are you supposed to wait until your blood work comes back? I sure hope he figures it out.
