Has anyone had this problem? If so, please let me know how it has turned out for you and maybe how you resolved it!
About a month ago, I took a motion sickness pill because I was feeling nauseous (for hormone-related reasons, I think). I had taken that same pill once before, even though it was expired by 5 years it worked well enough the first time. When I woke up I felt horribly weak, disoriented and had a metallic taste in my mouth... and then I got some pink bumps all over the back of my hands and wrist. They began mildly itching, and slowly but surely they disappeared. I figured that the motion sickness pill (or its other ingredients, e.g. Red 40) had caused the rash, since then I have strictly avoided eating anything containing those things.
A few days ago this rash came back in full force. My old scratch-marks appeared, as well as the same bumps, but they spread all the way up to my shoulders! It doesn't make any sense, and the itching is nonstop even though I've constantly been applying stuff like aloe, Gold Bond, and topical antihistamine. I don't have any known food allergies, I didn't touch any poisonous plants; I'm not pregnant. The only thing that's changed since the first rash is that I switched detergent. And the night before the rash broke out I ate a whole lot of bread (my stomach still hurts from that). Could it be the detergent? Or the bodily distress from my bread-binge? Those both seem quite unlikely, but I can't think of much else right now. The itching does subside whenever I'm working out (esp. swimming in a nice, cold pool...) but that's about the only time.
