I've had this for going on a week now. It's typically worse on my pals, which itch like crazy and it's also a little painful on my palm area, a bit like pushing on a bruise. I had a terrible set of hive-like rashes on my head, which also resulted in a pretty large bulge at the back right hand side of my head (elephant man lite!). That cleared up from terrible to virtually all gone in one night and I thought it was over. But then it came back on my palms and has now appeared on my fingers, wrist, thigh and neck. Those on my fingers have this weird white ring around an inflamed reddish itchy area, in a circle. On my neck and face they present as acne-like hives. It started with a single, coin sized itchy red circke right in the middle of my left palm. Thisd went away after about 2 days but came up on my right palm the same night, again disappearing after 30 hours or so. Then it appeared on the back of my head and behind my ears. I saw the doctor 3 days ago and she couldn't diagnose it as I simply can't think of what the cause could be. I'm not allergic to anything that I know of and do not take any medications. Also, the fact it is appearing all over my body makes me think it's not contact dermatitis, so I'm at a loss. Originally thought it might have been caused by some old clippers I used to shave my hair which may have had old hair in it, but I'm really not sure.
I was prescribed Eumovate cream, and perhaps it's too early to say if it's working or not but I haven't noticed a difference thus far. Also been taking Ranitidine 75g tablets. The itching always seems to be worse at nights.
