Have you taken any oral tablets for your condition? to alleviate the itching?

I've taken Benadryl and put hydrocortisone cream on it but it's getting worse than yesterday
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Are you getting these bumps only on the face&neck or other body parts as well?

Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

I would need to study your case a bit as it has not responded to basic benadryl and hydrocortisone and hence will reply to you soon

Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Did you get any facial done before this itching started?

Did you apply any cream on the area like an anti acne cream or anti ageing cream before the onset of the rash?

What face wash are you using?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't use anything on my face since I have sensitive skin. And I haven't changed any soaps or detergents.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was only on my neck and chin Tuesday, now it's spread to my whole face
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you very much for all the information provided.

This could be a possible acute allergic dermatitis.

Could there be anything that you recall that you may be allergic to?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm allergic to poison ivy and poison sumac but that's it
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Did you have any contact with any forest or trek area or excessive exposure to sun before this happened?

Did you play any sport like tennis , swimming before this happened?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I mowed my parents lawn like always
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

In the sun ? was there sun exposure?

Did you sweat a lot?

Plant allergy is probability as this looks like an acute allergic dermatitis that is causing the itching and not responding to the basic line of treatment with the history of sensitive skin type.

Oral over the counter Claritine is more effective and can be taken once daily at night for 10 days.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay I'll try it. Thanks dr
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

You can also try to use a stronger ointment like Mometasone and Fucidin on the area once at night for 5 days

You may however need a prescription for the above creams
