dermdoc19 :

Would you be able to describe the rash? Would it be possible to have someone take a photograph and upload it. You would click on the tree icon and then upload. Thank you.

Customer :

I don't think I can take a photo of it, but its like small raised bumps...No scabs and it is pretty much localized. I would guess it has something to do with

Customer :

opps....what happened? Lost the first part of my typeing. It might be a reaction to elastic which I can find NO creams for, etcTh

dermdoc19 :

They are not hives, but little itchy red bumps?

Customer :

Well hummmmm, I never thought of hives, but it is pretty constant and I think hives come and go....I have the rash on a daily basis, however if an alergy causes

Customer :

hives, then it could be hives.

Customer :

It does not happen any other place on my body except around my bra line and doen the center of my back

Customer :

Excuse spelling....Hope you can deciper it...

dermdoc19 :

If they are little red bumps, I would try Maximum Strength Cortaid Ointment twice a day. Also, I would purchase either Prax Lotion or Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion. If you feel they are hive like, I would add Benedryl 25 mg. an hour before bedtimes and Allegra 60 mg. twice during the day. If it is localized to the back like yours, it is more likely a contact dermatitis.

Customer :

Thanks you for you help. I will try the above.

dermdoc19 :

If this does not resolve the problem in three weeks, I would consult with a physician since you might need stronger medications. Do try to avoid elastic.

Customer :

Thank you. I can't believe this system really works. I will recommend it to others.
