It's been about two weeks and it's such a bother, I really want to get rid of it. I've been getting small itchy bumps/lumps on my inner arms. During the first week, they were really red and had dots all over but no bumps. So I went to see the doctor and he gave me hydrocortisone ointment and told me I should check the clothes or blankets I use because of the material or the deterrgent.

So I use the stuff and it actually didn't stop the itch but made my red dots go away. Now for the 2nd week, I have small bumps and i'm itching just as crazy. I also itch sometimes in my inner thighs as well. My skin's getting red from all the scratching and my bumps are spreading.

I don't know what it is because nothing for my clothes (for material) changed and I didn't use any new soap or lotion, it just appeared out of nowhere. Please help me with this problem, I used to have clear baby soft skin and now it's getting lumpy, red, and disgusting :oops:
