A few weeks ago I began taking Westhroid (T3 thyroid) med with 4 fish oil vitamins, 3 Vit. C, 2 B complex and 1 Vit. A pill per day (as per new doctor). At the exact same time, I tried Mary Kay cosmetics for the first time in 10 years because my sister in law sells it and convinced me it had changed even though I had an allergy to it years ago. Needless to say I broke out in a severe rash on my face and neck which sent me to the ER after my eye swole shut and my face was a mess. Doctors didn't seem to think any of the new vitamins I was taking could be the culprit since it was primarily on my face and I had a history of allergy to the make-up. I discountinued using the new meds anyway while I underwent Prednesone and Zantac regimen for about a week to deal with the face rash. I also started breaking out with a hive-type (very itchy) rash in hot spots around my body (bra line, panty line, crease of arms, in between fingers). The rash on my face cleared up, but the hot spots rash persisted. Granted I live in Texas and the heat aggravates this I'm sure, but since I've gone back to my vitamin/thyroid regimen 2 days ago, the rash on my arms has gotten a lot worse and is spreading to almost every part of my body. The doctor told me it wasn't the Westhroid but could possibly be one of the vitamins (a rare but possible explanation). So I'm to stop the vitamins and introduce one at a time to test for allergies. HERE'S MY QUESTION: If this rash never completely cleared up, what can I do to get it to go away before I can even start trying to find out what caused it? Cortizone creams and Benedryl just help with symptoms -- the rash is not getting better or going away. Help!! It's driving me crazy and it looks horrible.
