I first noticed this probelem on November 30th, 2017. It just looked like a bit of dry skin. But now the rash is getting bigger, but I'm not even scratching at it.
I have no other blisters,or bumps. No other health problems.

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details and sharing clear picture.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

Well, such symptoms can occur with a condition- Urticaria.

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

This is not a serious issue and usually can be managed at home.

Exposure to environmental irritants can worsen symptoms, as can dryness of the skin, exposure to water, temperature changes, and stress.

The following tips will help you -

1. When washing or bathing, keep water contact as brief as possible.

2. Use less soap than usual.

3. After bathing, it is important to trap the moisture in the skin by applying lubricating cream on the skin while it is damp.

4.Temperature changes and stress may cause sweating and aggravate the condition.

5.Take tablet Zyrtec once a day. .

7. You should mix 1% Cortisone cream with 1% Clotrimazole cream and apply over the affected area twice a day, for 5-7 days.

These symptoms would get resolve with above measures. In 1 week, you would become free from symptoms.

Hope this helped

Urticaria/Hives look more like bumps. This rash is like scaly skin. It is not eczema because I used to have it as a child. The rash is also getting bigger, although I am not irritating it. I haven't used any new soaps or lotions either.
