I used to get the same rash every year when ragweed bloomed. If I put cortisone cream on it to stop the itching, it got bigger! Then I started doing yoga. I teach and the rash was being caused not by the ragweed, but the worry/stress of the beginning of the school year. Once I learned to take a deep breath and relax, I don't get the rash in August any more. A very good doctor discovered last year that I am allergic to prednisone...so the cream to stop the itching was making the hives worse...
I recommend yoga to everyone...It has really helped me.

I am losing weight 10% at a time. I can do this!
Goal: 5 pounds a season.

I also use an herbal topical salve that has really helped me, it has been a life saver. If you like to go natural, look for some things that have comfrey.

My dermatitis gets like that sometimes, especially when my skin gets really dry. I stock up on vasaline and use that before the itching gets going. If it isn't just dry skin causing the itching, your doctor should give you something to keep it down.

I have had a rash for about two weeks, started gradually on my torso, then to my legs. The blotches blend together after there are enough spots and itch like crazy! I've been to my dermatologist, who took samples and sent them to a lab. Every day around 5 p.m. it really gets worse. Anyone have any suggestions?
