Cut out the caffeine and beer and use plain cornstarch powder liberally and frequently to your bottom. If itching is waking from sleep, caffeine is the most likely culprit. Also consider pin worms but rare in adult. ...Read more

This : This is a bit tricky to answer without a picture and more clinical information. I doubt it was from the blood draw. This time of year it could be many things including a medication reaction, eczema, a viral exanthem, psoriasis, dry skin from low humidity, and many others.

Go to ER if you develop throat tightening, short of breath, wheezing, or other concerning symptoms other than rash ...Read more
