Brief Answer:
Is this itchy?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed the information and attached image. This seems suggestive of urticaria or an allergy. Before I settle on this, I will like to know if this itches or not. Also, what is the working condition like? Are they very hot?

For now, drinking much water and staying cool is very much advised. Excessive sweating might cause irritation and provoke a reaction that presents as blotches/redness. Dressing light and hairy should also be considered.

I hope to hear from you...Waiting...

Brief Answer:
Take Benadryl 25mg thrice daily!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This fits an allergy. Beside avoiding high temperatures, drink much water, dress airy and take Benadryl, 25mg thrice daily for relief.

I wish you well and do well to keep me updated.

Brief Answer:
Yes!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You can actually use that to apply topically. Put the benadryl on hold as they can both do the same job.

I wish you well.
