Hello,

I want to get some more detail information about the problem-

How long the problem is there? Is the rash continuous with margin?

Does she have any other disease?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you.

About 24 hours. It goes from her legs to her butt and her back...It is not on her face, vaginal area. I believe this is what you meant as continous margin.

We know that she is allergic to almonds and pecans but she did not eat any of these.

My wife says she did not change the detergent so we are kind of lost as to the cause.

She was prescribed Zyrtec and Hydrocortisone cream but it does not appear to have helped. I just got back from Walgreens where I bought Gold Bond Itch Cream that says it has praxomine and camphor in it.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
