Customer Question
I have a red...

I have a red itchy rash over a few parts of my body. It went away then came back a few hours later

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

I just had a cool shower and I feel inflamed and itchy again

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I do have asthma and do get itchy skin sometimes but this time is different because I have a rash

Dear,

Thanks for staying Online.

I am posting my answer below-

Well, these symptoms are most likely suggestive of skin disease known as urticaria.

It is a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) occurs in the skin, causing inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become reddish & itchy.

Following is recommended for you now:

-Take tablet benadryl once a day for one week.

-You should mix 1% Cortisone cream with 1% Clotrimazole cream and apply over the affected area twice a day, for at least 7 days.

-If the area is large then apply Calamine lotion.

You should not use these medications, around eyes.

Take tab Motrin 400mg twice a day. This will reduce inflammation of skin.
These all are OTC drugs.

You can use above measures, for one week and would get good results.

Hope this helped

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
