I have had a blister type rash that is very itchy all over my body for over 3 weeks. Both my Rheumotologist and a dermatologist cannot identify it. Has anyone had a similar issue. Could this be related to RA?
It’s odd. Sounds like a classic systemic allergy since it’s everywhere on ur body .
I have heard of cases where someone, even much later in their life, do become allergic like this to something they’re eating...even though they ate it their whole life without one previously problem ....very hard to figure out what food it is in those cases..sometimes keeping s strict diet diary can bring some correlation to light...🤷♂️
I too have episode where I itch and cannot stand it. I didn’t know what caused it but I do know. I was born with a primary auto immune disease called cvid and was diagnosed 4 years ago. I too had quit itching for a long time but it came back. I started treatment for years ago and still itch some sometimes but not as bad.
I dont get a rash, usually, but I do get a lot of very itchy "spots". They itch sometime so badly that it drives me nuts!
I've had RA for over 20 years, the only time I ever had a rash was when I had shingles.
