Hi all. Without going into any detail (not ready), it's been a tough 5-6 days for me. On Sunday night I had a few "spots" on my arms, thought I irritated my skin from cleaning product or something. By Monday morning I had a stress/nerve rash all over my arms, chest and back. It is driving me insane. The itch is enough to drive me over the edge. I have been taking Benadryl for the itch, but since this isn't a allergic reaction, the Benadryl won't stop the actual rash. I have had this happen only once before (from stress then also) and that was so many years ago. It went away with one night. This morning it is still kicking around. I have tried to relax, to rest, sleep, not scratch, etc. Still it is not going away, I think it might be worse but then I can't see my own back either, makes it hard to tell. The crazy thing is that although I was over the edge stressed (to breaking point) back on Friday, I thought I was coping relatively well emotionally. I wasn't breaking down, I wasn't freaking out or anything. :frown: This sucks. I did make an appointment with my doctor this morning, will see him at 11:30. I am just wondering if anyone has any experience ?? How do I make the itch stop?? The Benadryl I am taking because it's what I know my doctor would tell me to try first. It isn't helping. I've tried calomine lotion, no help. Bath with baking soda. No help.
