Patient

Q: I started with a small rash like itch on my arm around the elbow area, two days later it worsened and was on my other arm but not as bad. I went to the e.r and dr. told me he felt it was a photo allergic reaction caused by the sun since it was worse on my right arm that was exposed to sunlight being a passenger in a car, but now after a week later the rash is all over my neck, back, stomach, legs and even bumps on the palm of my hands. I have seen a couple dots on my face but not bad. The itch is intence and not just at night when I'm sleeping but all day. Benadryl and hydrocortisone cream doesn't seem to be helping. I'm ready to scratch my skin off.
