Antihistamines: Good morning, viral rashes could vary in nature from macules and papules due to chicken pox and mononucleosis to hives, which can last for a long time. Red itchy bumps suggest hives. Viruses come to our body, enter the cells of different types and take over the management of the affected cells just like a new manager. Our immune system reacts by antibodies to reject them, and will eliminate them. ...Read more

Insatiable itchy bumps that turn to lumps, itch creams don't help keep me up some nights, goin on for cpl wks, go away n new ones come up?

Look for answers: If this only occurs at night, it could represent allergy to the soap with which you wash your sheets or insect bites. If you don't live alone, insect bites would affect other members of the household. Try changing the soap that you use to wash your linens and night clothes. If the problem still persistd, ask your physician for a referral to a dermatologist. ...Read more

Hand eczema: The most common causes are irritant (too much hand washing) or contact allergy. Pay attention to the type of soap and hand preparation to see it changing the brand would help (no scented, anti-bacterial soap) or gel). If you wash you hands too often, consider wearing a non-latex glove on some of the chores and apply a lotion after washing whenever possible as well as reducing hand washing ...Read more
