A rash whch started under my arm

A rash whch started under my arm, went down my arm, then up to the back f my neck, now it has spread to under my breast. I have a few lumps elsewhere on my body, none on my legs as yet. It starts by feeling very prickly and itchy and keeps spreading downwards. At first i thought thy were bites but keeps going down and becomes larger and spred out like hives . am trying antihistamine and cortisone cream. doesn t seem to be helping.

I am guessing you have a rash which is centrifugal in origin and it is most likely of viral origin. You need urgent dermat opinion and might have to start on oral steroids if it is getting worse
