Hi I am a 23 year old woman, and for the past three weeks or so I have had itching red marks all over my body from the neck down. The red marks are fairly large in some places, about the size of my thumbnail, and are terribly itchy. They are also all dry to the touch. I've been stressed a lot lately and I was thinking they were hives, but now I'm not so sure since they just won't seem to go away. I've been using Benadryl and Lanacane and they don't seem to be working. Does anyone have any suggestions? As in non doctor-related suggestions? I am a poor college student at the moment and the doctor's office is not really an option for me
. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
