Yes! I made a thread about this in the Break Outs section. I get a flare up every summer. Sometimes it's on my face, other times it's on my fingers. This spring it decides to come early and on my face Thumbs%20Down
 
I think it's eczema, but it could be a rash. What do you do to treat yours?

I've been using the same thing, minus the Benadryl. (I was actually using the Benadryl cream). I usually have to wait it out as well, but I don't want to suffer with it all summer.

I wish there was something that could clear it up faster.

I haven't had clear skin is such a while, but I'm constantly reminiscing about it (when I actually had flawless skin). Cry
 
How has your rash/breakout been coming along? Is it responding to products you're using?

Mine too.. How long have you had yours and how long does it usually last? Mine looks like it's trying to clear up; it doesn't look as bad as it did mid-April...but it's also almost a month later.. Hopefully it's gone soon - as well as these dark spots the rash left.

I use the children's Benadryl because it's chewable and works faster. They used to make the Benadryl called fast melt for adults but I haven't been able to find it, don't know if they decided to not carry it anymore.

That sucks, doesn't it? I've accepted this a well. It sucks seeing flawless skin when people are showing it off and feeling like you have to cover up or hide yours. I feel your pain, OP.

And this cleared up your rash/stopped your break outs?

I have them on my cheeks and chin and even some on the sides of my face Confused Which is unusual because I've never experienced break outs in that area of my face. I'm hoping, since these bumps aren't blackheads or whiteheads, and some of them don't contain gunk, that they go away . . . immediately. It seems like it flares up, then dies down. And when I think: "Yes, it's finally cleared up," it flares up again.
 
I can already tell this won't be my summer Ouch
