Raised itchy rashes on the lower legs and arms. Not responding to benadryl.

I have a rash that started on my lower legs, and now is also on my upper legs and arms. It isn t on the rest of my body. It is not welts or obvious spots, but I can feel the bumps when I run my fingers over it. It is extremely itchy and keeps me awake at night. Benadryl doesn t works that well. I am at my wits end.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. From your description it appears that it is not an allergy but is an infection, of either bacterial or fugal. So you need to use antibiotics or anti fungals for cure.

I advise you to consult a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. If your skin is dry skin you may need some moisturisers to make it smooth ant resistant to infections.

Take balanced diet and nourishing food to make the skin healthy, and sea that the haemoglobin is upto the mark.

Wishing for a quick and complete recovery . I thank you for calling.
