Um...weird rash...WTF is this? Pics post #13.
On the last day of the cruise I went on I developed a rash on my thighs. I thought maybe it was due to the soap I used or something. It went away after a few days.
A couple days ago I noticed my ears were incredibly itchy inside and out. They also had a burning sensation and felt as if they were swelling up just inside. My eyes were also itchy/burning. Eventually my scalp started itching badly and I could feel raised welts around it. Itching subsided for a few hours yesterday but came back on and off. Last night I noticed raised welt like bumps all over my upper thigh and hip area. They itched badly. Also had them appear on my right arm.
This morning, I awoke to find that the welt like bumps were still there but not as red/raised. New ones appeared on my left arm near my elbow. Later this morning more appeared on my left wrist... then eventually my right wrist. Some were evident on the back of my neck. My chest area was itching and was starting welt in certain areas but it has died down and has not bothered me since. Now my ankle is itching quite a bit but I haven't yet noticed any welts. A little while ago, ears and eyes began itching again. Scalp again began to itch, with raised welts present.
"Welts" on my wrists, arms, and neck are all perfect circles. Welts on my hip/thigh area are more blended together.
I tried going to the doctor today but it was an urgent care type office (my Dr's office couldn't fit me in) and there was a 2 hr + wait. I'm going to go back again tomorrow earlier in the morning to hopefully figure out what the heck is going on... but I was just wondering if anyone has seen this before? Any ideas on what it is? Benedryl didn't help.
I haven't eaten anything different, gone anywhere different (aside from a cruise to the Bahamas a week ago), used any different soaps, lotions, laundry detergents, etc.
It's driving me absolutely insane.
