I started to feel itchy on Monday evening and I’d developed a rash on Tuesday morning. It’s just a red mottling, mainly on my neck, chest, stomach and back. I’ve taken some anti-histamines and pharmacist has given me some anti-hist. cream but had a v. bad night’s sleep, just too itchy!!!
So, I have some questions. The first is how do I work out what’s caused it? I’ve not started using any new shower gel, washing powder etc. but is it possible to suddenly become allergic to something you’ve used before? Or is it possibly a reaction to something I’ve eaten? How long does it normally take to react i.e. is it going to be something that happened on Monday that’s going to be the problem?
Last question, is there anything else I can try to stop the itchiness? It’s driving me mad and as I have to work this weekend I can’t even take the anti-histamines that send me to sleep.
Any advice/sympathy gratefully received!
