rash and welts

Every evening my wife gets a rash with raised welts at different locations on her torso, including, but not limited to, pressure areas for her lingerie.  By morning they are gone, only to come back in other areas again the following evening.  She saw a MD, but she had no ideas.  It has gone on for over two months.  Can anyone help?

You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.

Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene .

Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin.

You could consult a skin specialist if your symptoms do not resolve with the above methods.

Post us if you need any further information.
