Okay, TQC. I know you are not suitable as doctors but since I have been to plenty and no one seems to know whats wrong with me I decided posting here was worth a shot and maybe someone has some idea what could possibly be causing this.
Okay so these two things might not even be related but starting about 3 months ago I came down with a strange rash. all small red bumps with scabs in the middle- kind of like mosquito bites except lasting for longer and very very itchy. started on my stomach- moved to upper chest, back, legs and now my arms. It takes forever for them to go away and they usually scar. I've been going crazy with this for months and doctors have suggested bed bugs and scabies- but had my room checked out for bed bugs and nothing. and they dont really look like scabies and no one else including my boyfriend has gotten them which makes me think its probs not contagious. Did blood work and nothing showed up.
Now about a week ago I came down with hives so bad that I freaked and went to the ER. all over my neck, face, body and my mouth started swelling up. ive gotten them daily since then. benadryl helps a little but its driving me crazy. Havent changed my diet, skin care, etc etc. I have no idea what it could be. Like I said don't know if it's related to the rash but it seems strange I'm having all these skin issues and they're not related. I'm itching and going crazy as we speak. All my doctor basically said was we pretty much have no idea what it is and they will probably go away within a few months to a year and never find out. and I am determined to not suffer for that long.
And I'm not on meds although I started BC about three months ago and quit about two weeks ago.
DKDC: I'm dieing. Obviously.
