Since friday I have had a rash, that is itchy red, blotchy

Customer Question

Since friday I have had a rash, that is itchy red, blotchy and causes my hands and feet to swell.. Ive been trying to figure out the cause which at first I thought was latex gloves ive been using at work. Friday it was just my hands that suffered, I took allergy meds and seemed to take affect but then saturday morning it flaired up again. Now its appearing on parts of my body and my feet are swallon with it.. I get this pricking sensation before the itch and then they appear and the itch becomes a nightmare. Its not shingles or miesales as I dont have a cold. I just feel unwell and currently fighting a chest infection. I havent made any changes to the way I eat or anything else for it to be an allergy. Im not sure what to do.
