I have never had any allergy before that I know of and there is nothing new in my diet.
However I have had allot of fermented food latly.
I have no other signs of fever or pain. The itch is very intense and if I scratch at all there become a lot more bumps.
I have been considering many possibilities. Like parasites, bacterial infection, etc. I hope it is something less serious like allergy.
They only appear on my arms. Last year was the first time it happened and I was unaware so I scratched them and they appeared alll over both of my arms on the inside and out.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
I just realized that this break out happened last year at the same time id did this year and I did have one thing new in my diet which was seaweed. I have been eating a lot of sushi with seaweed and I do not normally eat sushi. At the time of the last break out I was having a good amount of sushi as well. The only thing that is different in the sushi that is not normally in my diet is the seaweed wraps, maybe this could be the allergy. If so, how could I tell if it is or is not, thank youu again for your help!
I have reviewed these images!
I have reviewed these images and this is suggestive of an allergy. At this time, stop consuming more sushi and we would see how this play out. If this doesn't happen again, then that is the most likely cause.
Take Benadryl, 3-4times a day to relief yourself of the itches. There is no need for any further aggressive medical intervention unless something else comes up.
I wish you well.
