Large bumps on stomach, legs, oval shaped, brown centre, red ring surrounding it, small red bumps. Creams given for allergies. Causes for eruptions?

last week I noticed that I had this weird oval shaped thingy with a brown center and a red other ring. Now Ive notice more small red bumps popping up some are staring to look like the first bump. I cant get an appointment to see my dermatologist until last next month. I wen to patiets first the doctor said allergies and gave me a cream, which I thought was just crazy becuase most creams say not to put on large areas. But these bumps are starting to pop up not only on my stomach but my legs as well. Please help!!

Hello Mia,
You are right that it is difficult to put creans on large urticarial eruptions. If these lesions are red and itchy and resolve within hours but start again at different sites (part of body), it is most likely urticaria.
Triggers can be : physical (so do NOT scratch), cold/hot induced, stress (makes it worse), occasionally menstruation-related, but more commonly idiopathic.
You need long-acting antohistamines like fexofenadine 180mg AM 90mg PM plus/minus cetirizine 10mg lunch time plus/minus hydroxyzine 25/50mg at night (ONLY). You may need the treatment for 6 weeks to 3 montsh depending on speed of resolution.
