I'm around insulation in attics all the time, I hav a pretty bad rash that itches constantly on my arms. Is there any over-the-counter remedies?

Hydrocortisone, but: Otc anti-itch creams such as cortizone-10 and calamide lotion etc. Can help relief your symptoms, but without know what is causing it, I can't say that this will do the trick for you. Try them for a few days, if not better then you should consult doc for an evaluation to find out what it is that is causing your trouble. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. A cut which has remained open and is oozing with an itchy rash around it might be infected. When did you have your last tenatus shot? I am answering this five days after you wrote in. If it is still problematic, recommend that you get it assessed. Heat, redness, swelling, red streaks, pus, fever can all be signs of an infection. Check to see if you need to get you tenatus updated. Take care. ...Read more

Bites: The distribution of the lesions and the fact that both children sleeping in the same bed developed the lesions at the same time makes it likely they are bites. Try to discover the source. Keep the lesions clean and use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for any itching. All the best. ...Read more
