What is this itchy rash?

Three months ago I had intense itching on my inner thighs and lower abdomen. It then moved to under my breasts and aureolas. A few welts appeared on my inner thighs and have not gone away. I now itch all over my body. Nightime is the most intense. I often wake myself up scratching. I have random small bumps occurring all over my body. The bumps on my hands look like itty bitty blisters, not clustered. Those often pop up between my fingers. The bumps everywhere else pop up randomly and occasionally may be in a patch. I have no pain except I will randomly get a pinching sensation from a bump and it will prompt me to itch. I have used medicated powder, medicated lotion, hydrocortisone cream, oatmeal soap, antibacterial soap, lubriderm, calamine lotion and acne treatment with sacylic acid. I have taken benadryl and cooler showers. I can't avoid sweating beacuse of where I live. I need to sleep and stop itching!! Help- what can this be??

Polyester allergy!
Polyester is in all clothing threads. For strength.
And with allergy to polyester, it is bad and starts where ever it is tight against the body. That is where it is always worse.
You ever notice the doctors on here say when someone has a rash, to wear loose fitting all cotton clothing?
shhhhhh, it is a secret.
Everyone is allergic to polyester but no one knows this. Because most people can tolerate it well except when the immune is down from sickness.

So let me guess, you wear tight pants right?
Well the inner thigh is reacting from the threads going down your inner legt.
There is one on the inside and one on the outside of pant legs. And your inner thigh is more fragile and sensitive.

And on your lower abdomen it was first also huh?
Well the waistline is often the tightest to the skin. From a belt sometime. Or just so they fit good without one.

Night time is more intense because this is an immune disorder and your immune drops down at might along with your PH balance for this is what makes you slow down and then sleep. The bodies way of shutting down gradually for the night.

You wake up scratching for polyester in your mattress.

Your blisters are reaction to polyester.

And nothing has helped because you need to rid yourself of the culprit.

Let me guess, when this all started you just got over or still had a sickness that wore you down? Right?
That is why it started.
Because we are all allergic to it but tolerate it okay. But as soon as we can not, the body becomes allergic forever. Thinking it just can not fix it any more so it reacts to tell us it needs our help and something is wrong.
That is what the body does.
eat something bad and your body knows before you do and gives us nausea or a cramp. And sometimes makes us throw it up.

No doctors will admit this.

Listen to your body. And listen to me.
I am not wrong!

Look at this post, just another one of many suffering the same thing as you. In the same places.Except his back is rashed too and your isn't.  maybe you are curvy and your pants don't touch tight like the front.
And see how this doctor reacts! Scabies!!!! hahaha
What a joke!
You can listen to him or listen to me.
But I have suffered this all my life and I am living proof.
I know more about it cuz I have it.
And finally figured it all out.

If people are to be helped people need to join up with me, and try my advice. When it works for you others will see this as you post that and then they will do it too. And then this hiding allergies to polyester and that it is in the threads will beging to come out

The symptoms are suggestive of scabies. Rash in scabies is usually found in the folds of skin and they are red blister like rashes. Yet they are very itchy and can disrupt life. It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.
My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist as treatment for scabies is specific.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

Don't listen to this doctor he doesn't know enough to be a doctor. I read 50 of his help replies last nite and he was wrong on all of them. Like he doesn't want to help. He should leave here.  

I am going to help you more with this one link than you have ever got for this!
And you would think after all these years one of these know it alls in here would think of it. I been here 2 days and I did.
This link has 1000's of pictures of people with this allergy. And so go and find someone that it looks like yours there. Because it looks a bit different of many people, and different body parts. Find your body part here and one that reacts exactly like you. A picture is worth a 1000 words!

Put up a new post for people to see, this well kept secret on this site so these people can finally find help. People are here for their doctors don't know and they aren't getting better. And the one thing no doctors say is allergy to polyester. That is taboo!
They would loose too much business, if the world finds out how many people well, pretty much all of us but few react.

Ps. I read 50 of this doctors replies to 50 people last nite. And they were all wrong. He must be evil or just plain stupid.

Thank you for your opinion. I have a question about how I should treat my home and exactly how scabies is transmitted. I keep reading that it is skin on skin contact. Could it be as simple as a handshake? Also, if it's skin on skin, then how should I treat my home? Do I wipe evrything down, including floors, or just focus on clothing and bedding? Thank you again!

One time I had scabies. I got it from my girlfriend who's who's dog had it and gave it to her. They get into couches and clothes etc...
What a bad time that was! I went to a doctor which cost me $ and then he misdiagnosed me as it being a fungal infection. And prescribed a cream which cost over 60 bucks, and of course it didn't work. Then 2 weeks later while in the car with my brother in law, he took one quick look and said you have scabies! And need to get some quell lotion! Do you have any idea how many doctors say fungal infection for about any rash they see? And this place is no different.
