I have had a rash (or many rashes!) for about 2 weeks now and after visiting the doctor for the second time this morning it appears I have Urticaria; and it's driving me insane!
The rashes are very raised welt-like bumps/circles and most of them itch like crazy. He has booked me in for a blood test on Monday and I have to also provide a urine sample.
For those who have experienced this, will a blood test tell me what is causing them? I have never suffered with allergies before and have no idea where to start to try and figure out what has caused it. I haven't changed my washing powder, eaten anything new, etc. etc. so am stumped as to why this is happening.
He's told me to take Cetirizine for this which will hopefully help, and I have been putting on Calamine lotion to the worst affected itchy bits to try and calm it down. So far, they have been on my inner arm underneath my armpit, on my hips, wrists and sides of my stomach plus a bit on my legs.
Does steroid cream work at all? Any help at all would be so much appreciated, or any tried and tested methods please let me know.
Happy to provide photos if needed!
Thanks in advance.
