Question: I started getting rashes with blisters, some blood and some small clear, on my arms in March. I have been to a dermatologist, He told me he had no idea what this is. I have had blood test, biopsies. I was told to stay out of the sun. I still am getting blisters even in my house. The itch seems to be coming from inside my body. Skin medications, including lidocaine.do not help. Benadryl is the only thing that helps. Could this be caused by vitamins, minerals or merlow wine?

Brief Answer:
Try montelukast and fexofenadine combination.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should try combination of antihistamine (levocetrizine or fexofenadine) and anti allergic (montelukast) once a day at night before sleep.
No, I don't think it is caused by vitamin and minerals, Not sure about merlow wine.

I switch to a dark red wine because, it was suppose to have better health benefits. Before that I used lighter red, with no problems, other than me over doing it at times.

I had allergy tests. I am allergic to grass and pecan trees. Mold and dust mites. No others showed up. My problem is I live on a ranch in south central Oklahoma. I think I'm in a lot of trouble.

45 years. I trained horses for more than 25 years and ran cattle. These blisters just showed up this past March.

Brief Answer:
Possibility of allergic disease is less likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Possibility of allergic reaction is less likely because it must be seen at least once in 45 years.
You had also been to dermatologist and he was also answer less.
In my opinion, we can do one thing.
You should live to other place (other than ranch) for 1 month and see for improvement in your skin lesions.
If they are improving then allergy is the cause but if they are not improving then it is not allergy.
Hope my point is clear to you.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
