Yesterday gor a little spot on my wrist was very itchy. Then some more appeared on my elbow and they are slowly spreading round my neck,in myhair, on back and tummy. The itching is driving me insane.
There is not many but omg the itchy feeling.
I have taken an antihistime put cream on nothing is stopping it.
Please tell me a miracle cure to stop it

take antoher antihistime, sometimes when my excema is bad it takes two to stop it.

Have a cool shower to calm your body down and take the heat out of it. Then moisturise the affected areas - even better of you can get someone else to cream them, its really soothing.

You need to find out what they are.

is it hives??

Keep taking the ah's, and sometimes you need to try different ones. Loratidine worked best for me

Would agree, as others have said, try another anti-histamine, when I get itchy allergy rash, the only thing that works is piriton, the non-drowsy types seem particularly weak.
