Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.

The condition you are describing can be scabies ,urticaria ,dermatitis herpetiformis papular urticaria etc.


Also I would like to know-
Since when you have this?

Do you have fungal infection anywhere else on the body?

Is itching more in night time or day time?
Do you have lesions on finger webs/wrist/abdomen/genital area?
Any family member affected with similar condition?
Do the lesions stay like that or go away after some time?


Can you upload photos of the affected area?
Photos can help a lot to predict the condition.

Wherever you have a visible lesion on the skin you can take a close up photograph of it and UPLOAD it in UPLOAD YOUR reports section.

Answer the questions and we can continue the discussion here.

Hi my name is Brandie I am a 30 year old female. I have been suffering with auto immune urticaria and angioedema for 6 months now. I have seen a lot of doctors and have had a lot of blood work done. They have tested me for lupus and hepatitis which all came back negative. However, my liver enzymes are elevated along with my neutrophils. I have tried every antihistamine and none have worked for me yet. My next med change will consist of dapsone. My question is I had an IUD inserted 4 years ago is there any chance this may be the cause of my issues?

I have had a severe bout of itching, hives, bruising that started about three days after my last dose of Nitrofurantoin on a ten day regimen, taking it every 12 hours during those ten days. I saw my doctor a couple of days after the reaction started and received a cortisone injection as well as a prescription for prednisone. I am now on my second round of 3-day prednisone medicine, and still having some intense itching, but it is better overall. My question is how long does this type of reaction typically last? I have a lot of bruising where I have scratched repeatedly, but I also have smoldering multiple myeloma, and the bruising could be due to that. Thank you.

Hi. Yesterday, I was mowing the lawn when I got two hives. I thought nothing of it because they went away within an hour. Today around noon the hives came back andaround 11:30 at night I noticed there is a crescent moon shaped rash around the one hive. The location of them makes it difficult to see if there are any puncture marks. I live in Pennsylvania if that helps narrow down a possible bite. Im not sure if it s related but this morning I felt a little nauseous around around 8:00 at night I got a really bad headache. What could it possibly be and is it something I need to see my doctor about? Thank you.
