i have bumps that have showed up on my body OUT OF NO WHERE. the itch is UNBEARABLE. it is on my calves, thighs, butt, back, chest arms, and i think it's traveling!!! i looked up pictures of hives and my bumps look like that. its 4am and i've just woken up because it has now gotten A LOT WORSE. *my upper lips has swollen* it looks like there is a big bump on top of my upper lip. it's not itchy though
i put 2.5%hydrocortisone on the spots. nothing is helping. i've had these bumps on my skin for about 8 hours now. it is definitely not getting better and spreading..
i haven't ate anything unusual so i don't think it's food allergy. i haven't taken any medications so i don't think it's drug allergy.
PLEASE HELP. list what it can possible be? what do i do to treat this? should i go see a doctor? dermatologist?
Take 4 tablets of dexamethasone immediately with one tablet of zyrtec.
Take 3, 2, then 1 tab of dexa…on day 2, 3, 4.
Repeat Zyrtec 8 hourly.
Cetirizine,(ZYRTEC–OTC medicine) a second-generation antihistamine, used in the treatment of allergies, hay fever, angioedema, and urticaria.
In India, Zyrtec and Cetzine are popular antihistamines and are available without prescription.
In case it's something you came into contact with take a good long shower. And take some histamine meds like Benedryl. see a Dr. if you have trouble breathing or you airway starts to swell. definitely sounds like an allergic reaction.
Forget asking strangers on here for answers GO TO THE ER RIGHT AWAY!!
Sounds like Urticaria (which is treatable with anti-histamines). however need to see some pictures to be sure.
