For about a week I have had little, red, extremly itchy bumbs on my elbows and fore arms. I first thought they were bug bites, but they didnt go away and there are so many of them. I think I've narrowed it down to being hives, but I havnt eaten anything different or been around anything differnet that I could be allergice to. so I'm thinking maybe stress. But how long would that last? I've had these bumps for a week, at first they were on my legs too, so they are getting a little better. I've been taking benadryl and using hydrocortisone and its not really helping. I'm starting to get worried, and if this is caused by stress, then my worrying probably isnt helping any.
Don't pay any attention to the spammers that claim to be a doctor and suggest drugs.
It does not sound like hives at all. Google hives and see what it looks like, they are red blotchy spots, not individual bumps. Sounds like you have a rash, not hives.
