Tried that but it didn’t help. Maybe i should try again.
If you have had covid-19 that could possibly be the reason. Last time I heard there were over 50 reactions to covid. And that was about a month ago. So it is old info. Drs. don't know
Perhaps try a stronger steroid cream from your Dr ?
Yes. In month 8 and symptoms have changed over time. Recently I started getting sores on my collar bones where my shirts rest on my skin. Same shirts, same detergent. So, I assumed that if Long Covid is partly an auto-immune problem this could be part of it, since I cannot find any other cause. I used topical over the counter remedies that did not really help. Now they are gone though.
just yesterday – post getting my second covid booster – I developed a rash on my face – unexplained and not from any type of new detergent or and outside allergies / vines and / or plants …. now I need more steroid cream for my face … this long haul covid process is painful and so very confusing and no one seems to have any answers
I also got a rash from my vaccine. It was on the inside of my forearms and luckily didn't itch. I read that it can be a reaction to certain vaccines.
Did you get rashes from the first 2 shots and the boosters ?
I used a topical steroid and that did help my rashes… I got the rashes only after my first and second boosters. post the first booster – I got a red rash up and down my arms, Post the second booster I get a bundle like rash on my stomach and then a dry skin rash on my face. In all cases the short term use of a steroid cream worked
I had hives on my calves a few months after covid. Lasted for a few days and came back later. Antihistamine worked.
