how long have you had this rash?
About a week
do the lesions come and go?
yes, bad when I get up in the morning and around this time
also thy are only on the inside of my arms
are they pinkish in color and itchy?
Yes, I know they're not bug bites because as hard as I itch them they do not bleed
and they fade away...only to return the next day, correct?
that sounds like urticaria (hives) and it can be precipitated or worsened by stress
it is an allergic reaction so often there is something else in the environment that triggers it, like a food (seafood is common cause) or a new medication, sometimes a new soap or laundry detergent...but stress makes the situation worse usually
it usually responds well to, and can often be prevented by, antihistamines like claritin or ceterizine (Zyrtec) or even Benedryl. Do you have any of these meds to try?
no, but I will get some tomorrow
Thank you for all your help
