And have you had any tests or studies to evaluate it?

No rashes. No studies undergone

Please respond through chat

Well there are several possibilities with this--

Diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, anemia, low thyroid, liver and kidney problems, low magnesium levels, and possibly an allergic situation without any rash

For now you can try oral benadryl or Claritin and a B complex vitamin supplement to help but you should see your doctor for an exam and blood work to check it out

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
