I attended a outdoor party two weeks ago at a friends garden. There was a fire going and I sampled fresh lettuce he was growing. The next day I noticed these bumps on my torso. They are close to my last rib on the left side of my body. At first I thought they were just bug bites and would go away. But they have not changed much in two weeks and I'm starting to wonder.
I take zyrtec almost everyday for allergies. I've taken benadryl on a few nights because of the itching. I've also used hydrocortisone cream on them most days although the bumps/marketings have not changed. When I itch them they get irritated with redness around them.
DID YOU ever find out what your issue was? I ended up having what I was told "hives" from a pharmacist b/c on 1side of my body, but my doc told me "bed bug bites!" He had a mutual patient of whom I knew and spent time at his house. He asked had I been at his house lately?tht was his way of telling me where i got them, I saw red i was so upset tht he KNEW he had them and invited me over anyway for dinner. I did not bring them home, but it is an epidemic and has nothing to do w/hygeine or how clean ur house is. I hope this helps and hope that wasn't ur issue. How are you?
