For last one month am suffering from severe itching with red bumps in most of my body parts specially neck, scalp area, hands and thighs. Initially it occurred with mild itching and later it became severe. We went to the emergency hospital and visited the doctor. They prescribed some anti allergy tablets for three days. My itching problem went off till I took the pills but re appeared soon after that. So last I visited dermatologist and he prescribed me Fexofenadin Winthrop 180 mg tablets for 20 days. Soon after starting the pills I got relief form my itching problem but now after completing my dose for 20 days it again re appeared after a week. My symptoms get worse in night and I am not able to sleep whole night. The dermatologist advised me that it is due to stress and if after taking pills it wont stop if should visit your physician. The problem is that I don't know even the cause of this problem and I didn't eat anything different nor I took any medicines except my migrane pills which I normally use in a month when I have severe headache.

Hello, sorry to hear you are suffering so. I looked up what the dermatologist gave you & it was prescription strength Allegra. Have you tried anything OTC for this? A lady I worked with use to break out in red bumps on her neck, our jobs were very stressful and stress was her trigger.

Perhaps go back to your regular dr & let him know the medication worked. If you are under some stress talk to the dr about it. Take care.

First the obvious ~ Have you changed anything at all? Shampoo? Hand Soap? Clothing detergent? If the itching keeps coming back diagnosing the issue as "stress" is probably too broad.

Keep a notebook of absolutely every single bite of food you take, what time of day, etc. You may think you are not eating something different, but think very carefully about where you buy produce, etc. if you have changed brands of something basic like a chicken broth. There can be one single ingredient that causes allergic reactions and you are simply not aware of what it is yet.

Also have you vacuumed thoroughly, washed sheets, etc.

Allergies are such a drag and often very mysterious.

Good luck. I hope you can figure this out and get some relief.
