IItchy, red rash on legs caused by spandex/polyester leggings. Treating w/ Benadryl (diphenhydramine) & hydrocortisone cream, but rash is spreading to arms and ears..

Take oral benadryl (diphenhydramine): don't use the topical benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream. Take oral benadryl (diphenhydramine). 50mg is usually ok but it will make you sleepy. See your doctor tomorrow if you can if rash is still bothering you. Cool shower should help with the itch. It is obvious you have a bad allergic reaction. Go to ER if you develop throat tightening, short of breath, wheezing, or other concerning symptoms other than rash ...Read more

Bumps on bottom of arms. Not itchy, pink, all on hands. Went to dermatologist & tried coconut oil, oatmeal lotion, fluocinonide, and aloe vera.

What did the dermato: What did the dermatologist say? None of the treatments you mention are likely to be of benefit for this. Your description is not enough for diagnosis. If your dermatologist is stumped he may ask another dermatologist for a consult. How much does it bother you? If not much distress you may wish to give it some timer. I can't believe any dr would charge you $230 ! insurance would pay 1/2 this!. ...Read more
