Hello, I am new to this website and could really use some help. No I do not suffer from hives or that other symptom, I was simply trying to figure out the controls on my profile. Alright, so this all started a little over a month ago after a camping trip. Two days after, I noticed a red and welted rash under my arm and along my elbow. I found it strange since lately I'd been getting a lot of mosquito bites but these were just too close together to be mosquito bites. So I was taken to a docter and he diagnosed me with having poison ivy. He gave me a topical called Triamcinalon I think it is called and a oral pill called Hydroxine to help the itching. After about 4 to 5 days, they went away but came back 3 days later. We were confused. We waited for about 3 weeks to see if it would go away, but it didn't. So I was taken back to the doctor and said now that it definitely wasn't poison ivy, but he didn't know what it was. So he sent me to get a blood test for Lyme Disease, Hives, Allergies, and other stuff that may have caused the skin to welt up like it has, but all the tests came back negative! My mom thought it was from my bed fabric, but how can that be if I get them in school too? Then we thought it was bed bugs, negative, we checked the bed and washed the bedding for a few nights but they were still popping up even after changing the bedding. They pop up in strange places like my fingers, toes knuckles on my hands and toes, hips, under arms, back, and face. Though I've only had about seven in total on my face but that was over the past month. Nothing has helped me so far and I have a dermatologist appointment for next Friday so all I can do is wait and do a whole lot of itching
Description:They appear at first as large welts but after about a day or two they shrink to about the size of one of those beads that you get inthef fake jewelry sets. They turn white when they are itched and the area around it looks like a huge rash. They don't leak no matter how hard they're itched and they appear randomly weather it be in the morning or at school. They are hot to the touch
I would really like some help with this I've been dealing with this for a little over a month and it's gotten really unbearable.
