    Hi there,

    I normally have pretty normal skin but over the last week or
    so my whole body has been really itchy and I keep finding big red patches of angry
    dry skin (on my arms, stomach, legs and back). I’ve been moisturising all over
    with E45 and putting sudocrem on the red patches of skin and have expected them
    to go away over time but they are still there and I keep finding new ones every

    Then yesterday I noticed some small red spots on my stomach
    but didn’t really think much of them. However, today in the shower I noticed
    that I have loads – all over my breasts, stomach, sides and back and I’m now
    quite freaked out.

    I’ve had a look on the internet and there are about a
    million and one things that it could be! I don’t think it’s heat rash as we don’t
    have the heating on much (and I live in Scotland!)
    and I know I had chicken pox when I was a child. It’s probably nothing but I’m
    a bit worried in case I have something contagious as I have to go into school
    for an event tonight and I really don’t want to pass this on.

    Any words of wisdom?
