21 yo male. Have taken benedryl for the itching but no regular meds.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No other areas at the moment just the hand.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The picture looks like an allergy.
Response to allergen varies from person to person.
The cause may not be apparent always.
You can try Claritin or zyrtec.

Sometimes one antihistamine works better than the other.
Hydrocortisone cream can be applied.
Those are available over the counter.
Other probable is an infection, bite.
If the symptoms do not improve, I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination.
Steroid or prescription grade antihistamines can be needed.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

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.
