Question: My son developed bumps all over his body followed by a a itchy rash last night around 9 pm. He is 30 years old. The rash has gotten better using chalamine lotion but now he says his fingers are swollen. He hasn't come in contact with anything. Didn't eat anything out of the normal. Doesn't want to go to hospital because of no insurance. It sounds like to me he was bitten maybe by a spider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Please upload a photo of his lesions.
Perhaps he has Urticaria or Hives. I suggest him to continue with calamine lotion. In addition I suggest him to take an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10mg tablet once a day for symptomatic relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
