3 weeks ago i had volunteered to collect trash along the highway...although i wore gloves i must have been in contact with pollen from all the plants/bushes(i live in the southwest, new mexico). after a couple of days i started to get an itchiness on both my lower arms. i have taken anti-histamine along with caladryl/calamine lotion. i have also tried to eliminate all my herbs/vitamins i take to see if any of these are causing the problem. after itching so much i have broken skin and there are a few areas where i have broken the skin. i can not deal with the itching and taking of anti-hisatmines any longer...any ideas...i have decided it has gone on far too long, so i will go see a dermatologist.
