I HAVE A ITCHY RASH ON MY UPPER BODY, BACK AND SIDES. THE ONLY THING THAT SEEMS TO GIVE ME RELIEF IS CLADRYL LOTION. THE RASH STARTED ABOUT 6 WEEKS AGO WITH THE ONSET OF COLD WEATHER. MY SKIN IS VERY SENSITIVE; SO HYDRACORTIZONE CREAM SEEMS TO MAKE THE RASH AND ITCHY BUMPS WORSE. I USE SKIN MOISTURIZING
LOTION WHICH DOESN'T SEEM TO HELP. WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSES AND WHAT MIGHT
GIVE ME SOME RELIEF.

THANKS
