random rash

So….last night I felt itchy, but didn't think too much of it because I'm prone to eczema this time of year.  That said, it wasn't all my usual eczema flare spot – my upper back.  It was that and….my armpits, abdomen, chest, arms and legs.  So, this morning, I noticed that I had a splotchy rash with slightly raised bumps in 2 spots on my abdomen.  It didn't seem to have spread, so I just put some hydrocortisone ointment on the flared and itchy spots.  I will keep an eye on things and go to urgent care if it spreads/doesn't improve.

Has anyone ever had a rash like that?

    Jen, how's that rash now? The only time I've wound up with a weird itchy rash, it was actually hives from eating celery or following a surgery I had and they thought it was a reaction to the betadine solution they used.

    Jen, hoping you're feeling better and the rash has cleared up.

    Any new detergent or bath / body products?

    It cleared up after a day or so.  No new products or foods as far as I know.  Since my skin has been itchy and it's "eczema season" for me, I wonder if it was just that my skin was already sensitive, so the slightest bit of irritation made me break out.
