Hi,
I got stung by a stingy nettle last Saturday and I come out in a rash and it hasn’t disappeared?

Nothing

Normally when I’ve been stung it last a couple of hours then goes away

But this is different

The following would help you;

1) Benadryl/Claritin

2) Hydrocortisone 1% cream.

Both are available without a prescription.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
